Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. A new version of Gnome Power Manager is available on Maverick and we are wondering if this bug is still an issue for you with that version? Could you please test and comment back? Thanks in advance.

The problem still remains. See attached screenshot. I think that at least the 2nd and 3rd notifications (screenshot) should be marked as urgent.

gnome-power-manager 2.32.0-0ubuntu1
notify-osd 0.9.29-0ubuntu3

Thanks for reporting this bug and any supporting documentation. Since this bug has enough information provided for a developer to begin work, I'm going to mark it as confirmed and let them handle it from here. Thanks for taking the time to make Ubuntu better!

Since one of the developers requested a separate bug for this issue, it should not have been marked a duplicate of bug 482283. It should remain a separate bug per his request.

I'm not entirely sure I understand the nature of this bug. I've never known there was a mechanism by which a notification's urgency could be set and in my day-to-day use of Ubuntu, I've never noticed any difference in the type of notifications I get. The screenshots provided by the OP both in this bug and in bug #482283 show a coloured bar at the top which I have never seen in a notification, not have I come across any way or activating such a feature. A Google search turns up a few similar images on other sites.

Are the notification urgency levels still a part of Ubuntu or have they been removed at some point between Karmic and Maverick, which is when this bug was originally reported?

Chris, notifications have an urgency level associated with them. That's what defines which one should appear first in the case one is triggered when another is already being shown.

$ DEBUG=1 /usr/lib/notify-osd/notify-osd

Ah, ok. Thanks for the explanation. Confirming as a paper cut.
