Xfce4-notifyd Notification service

Introduction

Xfce4-notifyd is a notification service for the Xfce Desktop that implements most of the “server-side” portion of the Freedesktop desktop notifications specification. Applications that wish to pop up a notification bubble in a standard way can make use of the xfce4-notifyd service by sending standard messages over D-Bus using the org.freedesktop.Notifications interface. Read the specification here.
