That's the thing: You can't really create a highly polished and
integrated system if there are settings for everything, it adds too
many moving parts which cause a lot of maintenance burden and make
bugs harder to find and fix.
Having some apps use tray icons as if it's 1998 and other use
notifications like they should is the opposite of polish.
Please head to www.kde.org
Make sure you remain seated, because you are about to experience a world
where all notification modes work, plus said notification manager has
per application history for ~6 years now.
Plus, and I know that this is moving close to functionality overdose for
you, you can either type, click, search *and* use the settings program
to change everything you wish, *if* you wish to change anything that is.
Finally, if you screw up, there a magic button called "Defaults", which
will undo all stupid customization you mistakenly made.
And yes I am writing this from Gnome 3.16 F-22 and no i do not try to
say that Gnome is useless.
