Dunst is a lightweight replacement for the notification daemons provided by most desktop environments. It’s very customizable, isn’t dependent on any toolkits, and therefore fits into those window manager centric setups we all love to customize to perfection.
sudo apt-get install dunst
Test it's working with:
notify-send "Notification Title" "Notification Messages"
If your distro version is too old that doesn't have
dunstify, you can install it manually:
git clone https://github.com/dunst-project/dunst.git cd dunst # Install dependencies sudo apt-get install libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0 libnotify-dev librust-pangocairo-dev # Build the program and install make WAYLAND=0 SYSTEMD=1 sudo make WAYLAND=0 SYSTEMD=1 install
Read and tweak the
~/.dunst/dunstrc file to your liking.
