I am working on a script that would display arbitrary system information on screen. For that purpose I've been trying to use
Consider the following 3 lines:
import pyosd p = pyosd.osd() p.display("ASKUBUNTU")
This works alright with python 2.7 interpreter, however , fails when run from a script - no exception is thrown , but nothing is displayed either. How can I troubleshoot this ?
I am open to alternative suggestions, but
pynotify also doesn't work for me, as the notifications it raises cannot be placed into arbitrary position of the screen. Note also, that
gnome-osd-client is also a useful tool, but i need a standalone script rather than using external application. The script would be aimed at other users, and i don't want them to download extra packages they won't need
