Yes but you need to know your screen size in pixels.

Open your theme's cinnamon.css as root and find the section that looks like this in the default theme:
Code: Select all
#notification {
   font-size: 8.5pt;
   border-radius: 8px 8px 8px 8px;
   border: 2px solid #a5a5a5;
   background-gradient-direction: vertical;
   background-gradient-start: rgba(85,85,85,0.8);
   background-gradient-end: rgba(85,85,85,0.8);
   padding: 8px 8px 8px 8px;
   spacing-rows: 10px;
   spacing-columns: 10px;
   margin-from-right-edge-of-screen: 20px;
   margin-from-top-edge-of-screen: 30px;
   width: 34em;
   color: white;
}

The line you want to change is "margin-from-top-edge-of-screen: 30px;"; margin-from-bottom doesn't work so you have to put in your screen size height and subtract distance from screen + notification popup height. My screen height is 768px and I use a bottom panel so I would put something like
Code: Select all
margin-from-top-edge-of-screen: 700px;

To test notification placement type this in terminal:
Code: Select all
notify-send "hallo"

...whch brings up a notification saying "hallo"
Thank you for this thread. That’s all I can say. You most definitely have made this forum into something special. You clearly know what you are doing, you’ve covered so many bases. Thanks!

I took away four icons from the favorites bar as they are already in the panel, and the Cinnamon Menu looks very much better now! :D
