dbusnotify sends a message to the
org.freedesktop.Notifications DBUS service, via the DBUS session bus, resulting in popup message on the current UI graphical session window on a compliant BSD or Linux system.
In effect, dbusnotify is like echo(1), except that the output is emitted through DBUS.
For installation instructions and additional documentation, see the dbusnotify web page.
For a complete description, see the man page.
It can be installed as a gem. It uses the ruby-dbus gem.
dbusnotify is currently an unpublished gem. To install, use the source.
$ cd dbusnotify $ rake install
$ gem man dbusnotify
If you alias your man command, as follows, then gem manual pages will be seamlessly integrated into your regular system manual pages:
$ alias man='gem man -s' $ man ls # works! $ man dbusnotify # works!
