The problem looks like this
(The text is extremely small)
One time I started to create a thread here about this issue, my browser crashed LOL and right after that I saw the notification in correct text size so I didn’t create a thread that time, what are the chances lol. But the issue is back and it’s causing annoyance again, it happens after every new AL install - if not instantly, then sometimes after a reboot.
However this time it hasn’t “fixed itself” even after multiple reboots / logoffs. Any clues?
it appears to be dunst, since it looks like you’re using xfce you might wanna remove it.
Yes I am using Xfce4 but why “since it looks like you’re using xfce you might wanna remove it” ? It has played very well before, but I’m trying to figure out why it sometimes starts displaying small text.
I like my notifications when they actually work, they are helpful xD
Well archlabs installs dunst with a certain config and font settings instead that takes over notifications instead of xfce4-notifyd. It’s up to you if you like dunst or xfce4-notifyd better.
Thank you for explanation ! I had no idea there was something like xfce4-notifyd, I think dunst looks nicer though. The notifyd has some weird buttons on the notifications like “Activate”.
However I did remove dunst for this install, at least I can read the notifications now without glasses xD maybe I should just stick to xfce4 stuff while I use this DE
Would dunst work properly if I somehow manage to disable the notifyd ? I might actually find that out the next time I install AL thank you so much, learned something new again today.
If you’re in XFCE you can take it out of your startup in the XFCE settings. I think you can also edit dunst with the config file, just edit the font size.
Yes, it will. You can set up dunst to run in xfce4. Then as @drummer points out, there is a config file for dunst to set font size, colors, etc …
Should be an ArchWiki page for dunst.
You can also test your dunstrc edit’s with a script just give the script a key.
Script I use… bindsym $mod+j exec --no-startup-id ~/.scripts/dunstesting
pidof dunst && killall dunst
notify-send "testing dunst 0
second line test"
#notify-send "testing dunst 1"
#notify-send "testing dunst 2p"
