Settings Dialog

The settings dialog can be either invoked via the application menu or the commandline: xfce4-notifyd-config and allows you to configure the following settings.


When set to Default the osd and app-notification style classes of your currently selected Gtk+3 theme will be used.

When set to a different theme-name, it will use the respective standalone Xfce4-notifyd theme.

Default position

This setting determines where on your screen notifications will show up by default.

In a multi-display setup, notification bubbles will always show up on the screen where the mouse-cursor resides as that is the most likely place for the user to be currently looking.

Disappear after

This timeout determines how long notifications will be shown until they gracefully fade out. If a notification is designed to be persistent, this value will not apply (e.g. warnings related to low battery power).


This setting allows you to set a default opacity for notifications. This only works when using a compositing window manager.


This shows a sample notification based on the style you have selected in the options described above.
