xfce4-notifyd - Xfce Notification service


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.


Several new features have been added in Xfce's Notification service, including a notifications log, the possibility to disable notifications per application, a global 'Do Not Disturb' mode, which inhibits all notifications, and finally a new animation ('slide out').
