Can't reproduce, is this still a problem?

comment:5 by dsjonny, 3 years ago

Still exists in hrev54115 x86_64. Tested by restarting the media server and also using the notify command in Terminal.

Not found related info in syslog.

Interestingly, I tried restarting the media server and notification do shows up here. Folder and application names are translated of course.

comment:7 by dsjonny, 3 years ago

Maybe it is local-related? Can you select other (hungarian) locale for testing?

comment:8 by dsjonny, 3 years ago

Tested with Polish locale and there was no problem. Strange :/

comment:9 by diver, 3 years ago

Reproduced with hungarian locale.

comment:10 by bitigchi, 3 years ago

Reproducible with Turkish locale.

PulkoMandy: Any chance you will be able to look into this while "polishing" for beta2?

comment:12 by pulkomandy, 3 years ago

I had asked about this before merging the "enable localizations by default" because it was a known problem. I suggest we revert that until the issue is fixed. Unless there is a better plan. I wouldn't even know where to look for this, there is no reason for this setting to have any effect on notifications, right?

comment:13 by waddlesplash, 3 years ago

Well, it seems related to the notification server and locales, so probably the place to start is investigating if the notification server is getting the notification requests, and then go backwards or forwards from there?

I suspect that this is related to B_TRANSLATE_SYSTEM_NAME breaking something inside notification_server or the like. Hence why it would be better for someone familiar with the Locale Kit to investigate.

comment:14 by pulkomandy, 3 years ago

I did not write the B_TRANSLATE_SYSTEM_NAME code and don't know how it works. You're as familiar as me with this part.

I identified problem. BDeskbar::Frame() that is used to calculate position of notification window do not work if Deskbar window name is not "Deskbar". It use Deskbar window name to find window: Deskbar use localized window name:

So notifications are displayed, but outside of screen. Notification window can be visible in Workspaces app on upper left side of workspace.
