#13245 closed patch (fixed)

Fix up startup-notification implementation

Reported by: davidben Owned by:
Milestone: 2.7.11 Component: pidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.7.9 Keywords:


When Pidgin acts as a remote in single-instance mode, the remote does not clear the startup notification, causing the desktop to display a throbber until timing out. Also, remove the optional dependency on libstartup-notification as GTK has handled this at the toolkit level since 2.2.

(And, as far as I can tell, libstartup-notification does not actually work anyway. If Pidgin starts as a status icon without opening a buddy list, the throbber does not disappear until I open the buddy list.)

Remove the dependency on libstartup-notification. Our use of it had some bugs and we don't need it anyway, as GTK+ has included startup notification support since their 2.2.0. Fixes #13245.
