Any idea how to resolve the conflict between these 2 notification services? (Without being forced to remove half of KDE?)
For example, dbus seems to be selecting the kde plasma notification service to respond to the org.freedesktop.Notifications service messages, rather than the XFCE one. Would you know if there's a way to disable the plasma service, or tell dbus that the xfce one should have a higher priority?
I'm not sure, but it looks like dbus is selecting the first one in alphabetic order (here it chooses org.freedesktop.mate.Notifications.service over org.kde.plasma.Notifications.service). I don't know if there is a way to specify a per-user override, but I would guess that symlinking /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.xfce.xfce4-notifyd.Notifications.service to /usr/share/dbus-1/services/00.org.freedesktop.Notifications.service (or some similar name that comes before kde) has a fair chance of solving the issue for you...
