 +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. [[https://​developer.gnome.org/​notification-spec|Read the specification here.]]
