Terminal notifications like in elementary OS?

Postby orschiro » Tue Dec 05, 2017 4:09 pm

Dear all,

Something I really like from elementary OS are its terminal notifications for commands that take longer than 15 seconds.

See this example:

Fairly easy to integrate by shipping the package undistract-me [1] by default. It is in the Ubuntu repositories.

Something to consider for the future releases?

Yours,

Robert

Reason: Adding the [rimg] tags (for remote images) makes your image appear directly inside the post.

Yet another on-screen annoyance.

Haha, good catch! :-D But it does what it's supposed to do for this purpose. Notifying you of long terminal commands.
