cannot accept file when using giver

Bug Description

When using giver, the recipient used to be presented with an option to accept or deny a file. With notify-osd this is no longer an option. The notification pops up and says what the bubble used to but there is no way to respond to the request.

Giver is on the list of applications that need updating <>, but the fallback alert should still be showing the same actions as the bubble used to.

Could you specify which version of Notify OSD you have installed? Attaching screenshots of the Notify OSD fallback alert, and the equivalent bubble when you have notification-daemon installed instead of notify-osd, would help too. Thanks!

Using Notify-OSD 0.9.6-0ubuntu2, I'm getting a bubble (with the same text as the notification-daemon bubble, minus the buttons), not a fallback alert box.

Thanks for reporting this bug. I can confirm the issue here. Giver and/or the c-sharp libnotify bindings are sending a set of actions in an unusual format that trigger a bug in notify-osd.

Ok, so notify-sharp now checks the server capabilities and if the server does not support actions it doesn't not transmit that in the request.

This is a bug in notify-sharp: the library should let the application figure out if it can use notifications with actions or not, and let it /consciously/ change its behavior, ie use notifications or a dialog box.

I have opened another bug report to trace that (#349550)
