  Fails to work with notify-osd

Status in “giver” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “giver” package in Debian:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: giver

  I guess Ubuntu is especially affected by Debian Bug#539050
  (http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=539050), as it uses
  notify-osd by default:

    Giver currently adds action buttons to the notification windows, even if
    the server does not support it. This breaks giver with e.g. notify-osd,
    which is currently in NEW.

    Quoting Desktop Notifications Specification, Section 3[1]:
      If a client requires a response from a passive popup, it should be
      coded such that a non-focus-stealing message box can be used in the
      case that the notification server does not support this feature.
