I have a python3.4 script. I would like to send to the desktop a notification. How do I handle this in python? Can I use notify-send?
I'm using Ubuntu 14.04.
#in my script if something: notify-send 'Here is a notification !'

You can use
notify-send as an external command:
import subprocess as s s.call(['notify-send','foo','bar'])
Or you can use the
notify2 module (
sudo apt install python3-notify2):
import notify2 notify2.init('foo') n = notify2.Notification('foo', 'bar') n.show()
There are more examples included in the package (see
