           Summary: Track Announcements by Young Hickory Should Not Cover

          Platform: Compiled Sources

            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR

        AssignedTo: kde-multimedia at kde.org
        ReportedBy: carsten at yeap.de

Version:           2.2.1 (using KDE 3.1.3)
Installed from:    compiled sources
Compiler:          gcc version 3.2.2 20030222 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.2-5)

A similar bug was described in http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=53993, however it got closed.

The announcement of the track is very nice, however since it covers the taskbar it makes large parts of the taskbar unusable. One thing I frequently would like to use after the track changes is to adjust the volume using the kmix dock icon. However it's covered and I have to wait some seconds untilt the announcement dissapeared.

I see three options:

a) Announce it with a bouble, similar to the announcement of new messages in kopete (the bouble should be closed automatically though).

b) Allow the user to position the announcement window by configuring the coordinates of the top left corner of the announcement window.

c) On-screen display like sim is doing it. See the first screen shot on http://sim-icq.sourceforge.net/sshots.shtml.
