I'm confused with GNOME libnotify. As I understand, it is possible in GNOME to display a balloon window with an arbitrary text, like:
% notify-send "Hi there!"
But I'm using Fvwm2, not GNOME and a libnotify library is just installed as it's required by some package.
Also I've noticed that libnotify somehow uses dbus:
% ps -ax | grep dbus # returns nothing % notify-send wow # nothing appears on the screen % ps -axw | grep dbus 23964 ?? Is 0:00.01 /usr/local/bin/dbus-daemon --fork --print-pid 5 --print-address 7 --session 23963 pa- I 0:00.00 dbus-launch --autolaunch 40a5c5864adc0959b644a6e7496569dd --binary-syntax --close-stderr
Nevertheless, such discovery doesn't help me to understand how one can with libnotify but without GNOME display a popup window.
