Confirmation of sent oops has unlinked "here" and doesn't let you see sent report

Bug #347984 reported by Martin Olsson on 2009-03-24
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

Using the old notification theme, the last word (i.e. "HERE") was a hyperlink. This is just one example, there is probably other apps using links in notification messages. Right now the message is confusing; "What do they mean "here"? etc

Instead, the initial alert for kerneloops should convert itself into a progress window, which in turn morphs into a final alert telling you that the report was successful and including a button for viewing the report. <>

Thanks for reporting this. Notify OSD tells any application that will listen that it doesn't allow hyperlinks in notifications. So, this is something that needs to be fixed in kernel-oops.

MPT, do you want to make any changes to the content/text of this notification?

Once you decide what it should look like, assign this bug to me and I'll fix it.
