notify-send "Message Title" "The message body is shown here" \
-i /home/andrei/Pictures/image.png -t 5000
is desktop conditioned, depending on whether it is:
- Unity's notify-OSD
- Gnome's notification-daemon
that displays the notification.
Quoting mhall119/devportal/notify-osd - Ubuntu Wiki:
... takes the place of
notification-daemon, and its presentation of
notification bubbles differs in several ways ...
In the ubuntu 12.04, Unity (version?) desktop environment, quoting manpage
notify-send - a program to send desktop notifications
Specifies the timeout in milliseconds at which to expire the
however, contradicting it's use by notify-OSD,
Notification | Ubuntu App Developer(
developer.ubuntu.com/resources/technologies/notification/), specifically section
...every bubble closes by itself after a timeout. This timeout is based on the
length of the bubble’s text; Notify OSD does not use the expire_timeout parameter ...
-t 5000 may or may not behave as expected.
Where can I find documentation for notify-osd?
What is the name of the program that displays the notifications?
