notify-send cinnamon-specific behavior

Post by alfonz19 » Tue Feb 12, 2019 11:30 am

Hi,

so I found out, that my brightness settings on laptop does not work. OK, the buttons do work and they are actually named "monitor brighteness up", so it should (could) be OK, but it's not. Nevermind. I can map my own script for that. But here's the thing: I'd like to know, what is the current state, and the original behavior had nice feedback. OK, so it's little bit sad, but at least we can still use notify-send(my current workaround) like:

Code: Select all

notify-send --hint=int:transient:1 $(xbacklight | sed "s/\..*/%/" )
but it's displayed way too long, and it cannot be influenced by `-t` parameter. Which finally brings me to this question:

I've read, that gnome/cinnamon "by design" decided to violate notify-send specification. So the question is: how does notify-send work? Can someone influence timeout at all? Can someone manually display that nice notification displaying screen brightness?
