Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Unfortunately, it appears Unity's subtle persistent urgency indicator has disappeared in Oneiric - so I'm now considering writing a replacement as panel/indicator applet.

However, I have no idea how to get notified when a window demands attention (or when such demands become obsolete due to the respective window being focused).

Some research suggests I'll have to hook into D-Bus, but I know neither where nor how.

Any pointers would be appreciated.

I can adjust mine in CCSM with the Ubuntu Unity Plugin / Experimental / Urgent Animation. Granted it's not a very long time attention getter but it does work on my laptops. You can find a lot more personality for Unity here too.
