Bug Description

Binary package hint: notify-osd

Brightness notifications are confirmation notifications and, therefore, they should last only 2000ms.

Volume notifications are lasting 2000ms, but brightness ones are lasting for 5000ms since the last updates.

That's very likely been introduced by revision where I fixed bug I'll add "compatibility"-checks to ease the transition-phase for patched apps.
What happens is that, right now, checks in notify-osd are only done for the correct capability- and hint-names (e.g. "x-canonical-private-synchronous"). But all patched apps still use the old (and non-spec compliant) ones (e.g. "synchronous"). Thus for the example of synchronous notifications/bubbles these now are handled as asynchronous ones and are treated with the 5000ms timeout instead of the 2000 ms one.

Just noticed that volume and brightness display simultaneously, seems like the brightness behaves just like an asynchronous notification.

That's gpm/gsd patches. I'm on that.

I just added compatibility-checks to notify-osd, which also check for the old hint-names (in addition to the new ones) and also exposes the old capability-names (in additionn to the new ones too). So this should ease the flood of bug-reports from users. Still our patches to applications need to be updated... rather sooner than later.
