Position of Megasync popup issue

Hello Garuda users.
usually the popup should be on the top right corner ,
but it keeps changing it's position to another position

I tried community/notify-osd, notification banner reloaded, and notify-osd at the recommendation of @Technetium, but it did not help.

Here is a temporary link to a short video of it happening: https://files.catbox.moe/dfwvlu.webm

I also have this issue under KDE, it's random. I've seen all 4 corners being picked-up by Megasync, although bottom right is the least common (but now I am clicking live on the systray icon and bottom right corner pops-up lolll).

This behavior did not seem to change much since I use dual-monitor setup (few months ago), in case that could have mattered.

So you are not alone in this and to this date I could not find how to control this.
I will keep watching this thread trying stuff that comes up or if I come across something interesting from outside, I will make sure to post it!


This looks like an app issue.

With Avalonia UI for cross-platform development, there was an issue with dialog positions on Linux; that position must be set after the window is shown or it is ignored. That's an Avalonia issue that has to be fixed (perhaps fixed already, haven't checked). Works fine on Windows and MacOS, it's a Linux-specific issue with Xorg.

Could be something similar here.


Makes sense. It probably uses XWayland under Wayland as there does not seem to be any specific Wayland Megasync package.

Then maybe a good way to report this would be on their Github GitHub - meganz/MEGAsync: Easy automated syncing between your computers and your MEGA Cloud Drive

Although with 454 OPEN issues, I am a little skeptical at how efficient it would be. On the other hand, not reporting means 0 chance for feedback. :slight_smile:

@SPY You deleted your post, is it cuz in the end none of your 2 listed packages actually solve the issue?

Yep , what fixed the issue is X11 , not these two packages ,
on wayland the issue is still
i switched to X11 , but gestures are not working even after i installed touchegg package and X11 gestures extension
actually X11 fix more problems that happen in wayland!

I have reported the issue to Mega
