I believe you will find such a notification example here:


It's not exactly like the SMS notification, as clicking it won't bring
you anywhere, I think.

Understood, and yeah, that's certainly true. Right now, I will be happy
without camera support for a while, if the other parts start to work.

You can find images here:


But they have various issues, outlined here:


We are hoping to make new images soon, maybe with 3D working, even. But

I don't really know. I personally would worry about finding the right
melodies/ringtones only after stuff works. I think Maemo Leste can use
the ones provided by Fremantle, as long as they as hosted on maemo.org.
But I'm happy with other ringtones. I'm sure maemo.org has community
contributed tones too.
