RCalixte added a comment to T8995: Feature Removal Rollback - Presentation Mode.

I'd love to either have an easy way to reproduce or backtraces (with ASAN builds)...

  1. If you have an Android device, install KDE Connect and configure your machine to receive the notifications.
  2. Once that's working, disable Wi-Fi on the Android device (for however long it takes for a deep backlog of notifications to be queued).
  3. Enable Wi-Fi on the Android device. Notifications will start flooding in. After a certain amount of notification volume (minimum 30 or so), the notification manager in E will be overwhelmed and E will crash. (Setting the notification OSD to a 10 second timeout is one way to get decent count of notification volume.) After restarting E, notifications keep streaming in, but do not consistently trigger consecutive crashes.

but there is no other way to get notifications e.g. for a reply to your reddit post (other than emails). thunderbird's "system notifications" option doesn't use system notifications -p it always uses thunderbird's own notifications thus it's these or no notifications at all. browsers don't support system notifications. if they did - i'd see them. this all applies for electron apps too as they are browsers... :)

i had a look into the notifications and ... they are worse than i thought/hoped. they are override-redirect windows bypassing the wm. this means at best e can refuse to composite them but they will create boxes stealing input from other apps etc. ... i'm going to put this back on the shelf as a "aaaargh" moment.

Agreed. I have a few workarounds precisely for these. I use KDE Connect which does respect native OSD. (There's actually a bug here where too many notifications cause E to crash, easily repeatable if one of my devices with Wi-Fi turned off has it turned on and starts receiving a flood of notifications.) For Thunderbird specifically, I used to use an extension that would redirect the notifications to OSD but it's no longer compatible with the latest builds so I've just gone without. (Thunderbird is just RSS for me anyways so I check in often enough.)

Well This sound was ADDED because of actual problems - losing battery and not knowing why (you got unplugged)

I agree on the purpose. You pointed out the elementary_config and it is fully configurable. On my laptops with E, I always add a battery module to every shelf/display exactly for the low power warnings/indications, along with a battery gadget on the desktop for good measure.

Apologies for the delayed response. I've started a new role and I have been busy with on-boarding.

well you can set any window to be full-screen you know... it's in the menu and ctrl+alt+f toggles it... :) so ...

This still doesn't address working with multiple windows or the applications that simply do not play nice with window decorations. I also mentioned already the issue with switching focus and fullscreen windows/applications and blanking still being triggered unless intervened. (I can reduplicate this fairly easily.)

  1. what happens when you log out - does presentation mode get disabled entirely thus any timers are killed off? or does the mode dontinue where it left off next login,. this was part of the problem of presentation mode. it continues forever AND no visual indication it's on without hunting through menus and you waste time trying to figure out why.

This was fixed in https://phab.enlightenment.org/D9868 and should make it into the next major release, but can hopefully make it into the next minor release.
