The synopsis of my project is to schedule a notification and force the icon that appears in the Unity launcher to keep jiggling perpetually (until I become aware of it and deactivate it).
Running Ubuntu 14.04, I execute the following:
sleep 60; notify-send -t 0 "TIME UP!"
This results in the following alert box and a concomitant icon in the launcher:
Unfortunately, the alert notification is too easy to miss. (For some reason, it always appears behind my gnome-terminal.)
So is there any way I can get control of the animation for the icon in the launcher?
