Correct Top Panel email notification on Screen0

Asked by JayBofMA

I am using Unity-2d and the default Top Panel that is rendered. My setup is a 15" laptop connected to a docking station and a larger external monitor (Screen1) configured with Separate X and Xinerama, First, I do not care that the Top Panel is rendered on both Screen0 and Screen1. But what I see is that the Evolution new email notifications are only updated on Screen1 (I saw some older post that indicated an updated PPA for Evolution included a fix for notifications, but that had no impact here.)

So I would like to see the notification updated correctly on Screen0. If this requires me to restrict the display of the Top Panel to Screen0, then I would need some information on how to accomplish this (toggling Stretch flags in gconf-editor made no change.) Or if there is a way to have the new email notification updated correctly on both Screen0 and Screen1, then I would appreciate any information in that regard as well.

Coincidentally, I see the opposite behavior for Evolution appointment notifications (and I have to run to one now ;-) ). The appointment notification indicator is raised on Screen0, where I would expect, and prefer, to see it. So this may be an indication that the email notification applet is at fault.

This inconsistent behaviour of notifications is indeed annoying. However it doesn’t have anything to do with unity-2d’s panel, the notifications’ placement code is completely independent from unity-2d’s code base. I’d suggest to look into bug reports for notify-osd, or maybe specifically for the e-mail notifications applet.
