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

Exec=/usr/lib/mate-notification-daemon/mate-notification-daemon
By :

Code: Select all

Exec=/usr/lib/notify-osd/notify-osd
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]
Name=org.freedesktop.Notifications
Exec=/usr/lib/notify-osd/notify-osd
#Exec=/usr/lib/mate-notification-daemon/mate-notification-daemon
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
