Tip and Website in one:
- notify-sendIt allows you to send notifications to the desktop and works in most DE’s. I use it in my scripts to let me know where they’ve got to and what is being done, also it adds a flair of professionalism to my home-grown code!!
An example use would be;
notify-send -t 5000 ‘Backup Script’ ‘The backup has completed successfully’
Which would then show a title and main notification for 5 seconds;
Title – Backup Script,
Main notification – The backup has completed successfully.
You can, as with all Linux commands, get fancy and add variables and other inputs. Thanks to Beardy Jesse for this Tip and Website.(ss64.com )
