I have a question concerning Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Desktop - notifications (same notification as Rhythmbox application when playing music back and forth), technically if I'm not mistaken it should be called "freedesktop.Notifications.service". I just want to add notifications when one of my devices such as; laptop, phone, tablet connect to my local network. My configuration is as follows:
I have a wireless router. My router is connected directly to my desktop computer with a wire, I'm using LAN, the other devices connect through WI-FI.
By way of example, let's say :
My router's ip address : 192.168.1.1 & MAC address XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
Me - as server - 192.168.1.101 & MAC address YY:YY:YY:YY:YY:YY
Smartphone - 192.168.1.102 & MAC address ZZ:ZZ:ZZ:ZZ:ZZ:ZZ
Laptop - 192.168.1.103 & MAC address KK:KK:KK:KK:KK:KK
- What I want to do is simple; add those IP addresses along with their MAC addresses in the ARP and finally modify the notification file, whenever those devices connect to my local network I get notified. That's it.
P.S : I said "ARP". However, I'm not sure if it is suitable, I'm just supposing it has something to do with ARP config file, and notification file. Any suggestion using terminal or other application will be acceptable.
I will be much appreciated if someone can help me.
