[HowTo] Install and activate Notify-osd in Mate (LM14)

Postby le hollandais volant on Sun Feb 24, 2013 9:19 am

Hi all !

When installing the package "ubuntu" « notify-osd », it does not apply automatically (the mate notification daemon remains), but it works when you launch it by manually.

Here is to make it as default.

First install Notify-Osd :
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install notify-osd

Edit the file /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.freedesktop.mate.Notifications.service
Code: Select all
sudo pluma /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.freedesktop.mate.Notifications.service

Replace the line
Code: Select all

By :
Code: Select all

It may be safe to comment the old line and add the new line. The content of the file would be :

Code: Select all
[D-BUS Service]

Log-out and log in to apply.
You can test if it works by running :
Code: Select all
notify-send Test This is a Test
