Feature Request: Use Libnotify for Desktop Notifications/Toasts
Would be nice if the Steam client used most Linux desktop environments' native way of handling pop-up notifications. Currently in XFCE the Steam popups are covering up part of my primary taskbar/panel on the bottom right, while the rest of my normal notifications from Firefox, Pidgin, etc show up in the top right of the screen and don't cover up anything.
I realize the Steam overlay currently uses the same notifications so it could create a disconnect, the Libnotify powered notifications could end up looking different from the ingame ones.
But it's an idea to consider at least.
I know that Mac OS X has it's own native notification system now, does anyone know if the Mac version of Steam currently uses that or does it use custom notifications/popups?
