I have the Chrome notifications popping up in the lower left corner of my main screen. This is quite annoying, 'cause the cursor of my terminal windows are right there, and they cover completly the command line.
I'm on Ubuntu 14.04 and Chrome 42
I've already tried:
- making my secondary (on the right) screen as primary: it still display notifications on the lower left angle of my left monitor
- Activate Chrome native notifications
- Libnotify Notifications in Chrome doesn't work, even with the modifications proposed by the accepted answer
- Linux Native Notification is incompatible, needs Unity plugin (what's that???)
- Chromify-OSD requires NPAPI, that I can't install, it's deprecated
What can I try? I will accept any of those solutions:
- redirect the notifications to Unity
- move them in an other angle of my screen
- move to an other monitor (I'm using Chrome on the secondary monitor)
I also found this on Chromium FAQs:
Q. Why don't Chromium notifications use the D-BUS-based notifications system (aka libnotify / notification-daemon)?
A1. HTML5 notifications can contain arbitrary HTML, which is not supported by the notification protocol. (This is the same reason we don't use Growl on OS X.)
A2. Chromium's notifications include a button that brings up an options menu, which is also not supported by the notification protocol.
A3. The glitzy Ubuntu notifications daemon, by design, does not allow the user to interact with notifications at all, which doesn't work when the notification HTML includes clickable links.
A4. It would be nice to extend the protocol to allow Chromium to integrate. Any takers?
