The GNOME Shell has the notifications at the bottom by default. Unfortunately, I like to use the dash to dock and stick it at the bottom. Meaning I can't see the notifications anymore. Any way to change the locations of notifications to elsewhere on the screen?

In Gnome shell 3.16, location of notification has been moved to the top. By default it is not possible to change the location of notifications in the Gnome shell, and best to my knowledge there is no extension to accomplish this task, but i could be wrong about that.

  • Yes, you're wrong =)
