Grokking libnotify

Postby Arancaytar » Wed Oct 14, 2009 3:31 pm UTC

Is there a good place to get information about notify-send, notification-daemon and libnotify in Ubuntu?

Specifically, I'm trying to customize some parameters that the notify-send shell command doesn't seem to offer: Changing the position where the message box appears, changing its size, style, color, and displaying simultaneous notifications in a stack rather than queuing them, changing the expiration time (which unfortunately doesn't work as advertised), etc.

Is there another way to interact with the notification daemon than notify-send, which has greater flexibility? Or can these things be changed in the notification daemon's settings itself?

I have no idea what you just said, but I felt bad because no one responded to your post
