I upgraded to Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet today and was annoyed, but unsurprised, to see that notify OSD was updated and restored to its default, limited, functionality.
The thing is, the patched version of
notify-osd and its respective configuration tool don't appear to be packaged yet for Ubuntu 15.04. Following the guide for 14.04/14.10 didn't work (not that I really expected it to), and I'm looking for a way to make notify OSD pretty again.
I'm usually an Arch Linux user, so the whole concept of a dist-upgrade is kind of foreign to me. Because the packages aren't packaged, does that mean the binaries are incompatible? Why don't the PPAs for 14.10 work? Can I download and install the required packages somehow without the system complaining at me?
