This amused me. Apparently Ubuntu Linux now features a system-wide notification framework inspired by the Growl project from Mac OS X. Unlike Growl, though, Ubuntu’s notifications are bound to the upper-right corner of the screen, which apparently vexes some people. Not to worry though! Lifehacker comes to the rescue with a post linking to the Ubuntu Forums. All you have to do is follow the simple advice to move the notifications to the bottom-left corner. There is one little caveat though:
The fix requires downloading and installing the source code for the notifications, and might require dealing with additional dependency installations if you get back errors on trying to install the source code.
Oh Linux, you crazy bastard, don’t you ever go changing on me.
