sysadmin_misc:notify-osd

notify-osd

notify-osd is managed by morons somewhere in ubtuntu/gnome that believe that ignoring the notification_timeout setting of notify-send is the right choice for the user, and I disagree along with so many people. Here is how to remedy that :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:leolik/leolik
sudo sed -i /etc/apt/sources.list.d/leolik-ubuntu-leolik-artful.list -e 's/artful/xenial/g'
sudo apt update
sudo apt dist-upgrade

Then in ~/.notify-osd add :

slot-allocation = dynamic
bubble-expire-timeout = 10sec
bubble-vertical-gap = 5px
bubble-horizontal-gap = 5px
bubble-corner-radius = 37,5%
bubble-icon-size = 30px
bubble-gauge-size = 6px
bubble-width = 240px
bubble-background-color = 131313
bubble-background-opacity = 90%
text-margin-size = 10px
text-title-size = 100%
text-title-weight = bold
text-title-color = ffffff
text-title-opacity = 100%
text-body-size = 90%
text-body-weight = normal
text-body-color = eaeaea
text-body-opacity = 100%
text-shadow-opacity = 100%
bubble-prevent-fade = 0
bubble-close-on-click = 1
bubble-as-desktop-bg = 0
