Package: libwxgtk3.0-0
Severity: wishlist

Hi there,
This is a feature request to enable support for libnotify notifications
in debian's wx-3.0.

The issue is touched shortly in https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-
bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=738849#22, but I thought I'd rather open a new
feature request as this is unrelated to webview support.

To clarify between wx built-in notifications and wx using libnotify
notifications: The builtin notifications use a generic approach, just
displaying a dialog-like window in the middle of the screen, but
certainly nothing a user would expect a GNOME/KDE/... notification to
look like. This is where libnotify comes in: this is what the major
Linux desktop environments are using.

Thus, integration of libnotify is not pointless, but enables a more
native look and feel of wx notifications.
