SYNOPSIS

notify-send [OPTIONS]

[body]

DESCRIPTION

With notify-send you can send desktop notifications to the user via a notification daemon from the command line. These notifications can be used to inform the user about an event or display some form of informa‐ tion without getting in the user's way.

OPTIONS

-u, --urgency=LEVEL Specifies the urgency level (low, normal, criti‐ cal). -t, --expire-time=TIME The duration, in milliseconds, for the notification to appear on screen. (Ubuntu's Notify OSD and GNOME Shell both ignore this parameter.) -i, --icon=ICON[,ICON...] Specifies an icon filename or stock icon to display. -c, --category=TYPE[,TYPE...] Specifies the notification category. Help options: -?, --help Show this help message -h, --hint=TYPE:NAME:VALUE Specifies basic extra data to pass. Valid types are int, double, string and byte.
