Bug 263952

Summary: system notification is not shown at the same time as the OSD

Description S. Burmeister 2011-01-22 11:30:55 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.5.95) 
OS:                Linux

If one jumps to the next song the OSD is displayed instantly whereas the system notification only appears a few seconds later. My guess is that amarok loads the content of the "lyrics", "current song" etc. before it shows the system notification.

Reproducible: Always

Removing all widgets improves the situation but the notification is still not shown at the same time as the OSD but soem seconds later.
Comment 2 Myriam Schweingruber 2011-01-22 13:14:09 UTC
What Amarok version is this about? Please don't forget to set it when you report a bug.
Comment 3 S. Burmeister 2011-01-22 13:21:09 UTC
yesterday's git
Comment 4 Myriam Schweingruber 2011-01-22 14:11:20 UTC
Confirmed on current git
Comment 5 Sergey Ivanov 2011-01-25 21:39:01 UTC
Amarok just creates new event for KNotify and ask daemon to show It. There is no way to force KNotify to draw new event before Its own timer event. It's not a bug.
Comment 6 S. Burmeister 2011-01-25 21:43:43 UTC
So you claim that there is a >1 second delay between amarok creating the notification and the daemon showing it? If so, please re-assign to the notification component since that one seems to cause a delay then.

Something is causing a delay and that's a bug.
Comment 7 Sergey Ivanov 2011-01-25 21:51:17 UTC
My bad. There is really the 3s timer.
Comment 8 Myriam Schweingruber 2012-10-21 11:59:12 UTC
Sergey, any news on this? I assume this is still valid with current git?
Comment 9 Myriam Schweingruber 2012-12-04 15:38:37 UTC
Currently, with Amarok v2.6.0-422-gfc07990  and KDE 4.9.3, the system notification doesn't show up at all.

Comment 11 Kai Uwe Broulik 2013-01-07 14:09:51 UTC
When I asked about the delay a year ago or more, it was said this is intended to prevent notificiation spamming when you quickly skip through tracks …
Comment 12 Kevin Funk 2013-01-08 11:59:35 UTC
I'm wondering about this, too. When I wrote the code, I used this delay to prevent this.
Can't check atm, but what happens when you quickly skip through songs?
Comment 13 Christoph Feck 2013-01-16 02:54:07 UTC
What is the status of this bug? Comment #12 seems to indicate that there is still something to investigate.

No it doesn't, I checked with Kevin.
