Ubuntu can show notifications, which seem to be equivalent to Growl. It is accessible through DBus (for programs) and through the notify-send command (for shell scripts).

You can install growlnotify to do this. $ ./some_program && growlnotify Title -m Message Of course you would need to think of this before performing your command. The alternative (I don't know how to achieve this though) would be a Growl notification for every single command, which would be insanely annoying. To simplify use of growlnotify for ...

A simple search finds http://growl.info/documentation/growl-package-removal.php from the growl official site. It also has this page http://growl.info/thirdpartyinstallations.php which may explain how it got on your machine. You should read it, or you may find it on your machine again. Growl is just a notifier, you can turn it off in Preferences if you don'...

I lead myself to the solution from a posting on Google Groups. Turns out you have to force Colloquy to run in 32-bit mode in order to get it to show up in the Growl .prefpane: Then, you can customize the Colloquy notifications however you choose:

There is a Growl port for Linux. Found here: Growl-for-linux

Open the AppleScript Editor, save as application, when saving check the box "Stay Open". Use this new applescript application to launch the VLC application. Description: It will launch VLC, turn off growl notifications, check every 2s to see if VLC has quit, if so it will turn growl notifications back on and then quit. As a bonus, it will use growl ...

Go to System Preferences » Growl » Applications. Select Cyberduck and "Configure". Highlight "Bonjour" and deselect the "Enabled" checkbox.

man growlnotify does not allow an option, and growlnotify --help doesn't mention anything either. Which makes sense, because the issuing software does not control the style, you are -- via System Preferences! But the growlnotify entry there only has a single notification type Command-Line Growl Notification (and not e.g. one notification type per priority). ...

Go to the Growl Website download it, then run the uninstaller contained in the disk image.

To play a custom sound in response to a Growl notification: Create a sound file and make it available to the system: say -o YouHaveMail "You have Mail" creates the sound file, "YouHaveMail.aiff". Sudo cp the file to /System/Library/Sounds/. Configure Growl to use that sound for the particular app and notification: Growl preference pane | ...

In OSX Mavericks and newer, Cyberduck uses the built-in notifications. To disable the notifications, go to System Preferences -> Notification Center. Find Cyberduck in the list and set the message format to "None", and you will no longer get popups.

My hacked Applescript posted below. This matches the Growl output of iScrobbler. Thanks to The Tentacle for the work! There's information on how to set Quicksilver to launch the script here. tell application "GrowlHelperApp" -- Make a list of all the notification types -- that this script will ever send: set the allNotificationsList to {"iTunes Playing ...

I've never used Keep-It-Up but I can't think of anything else that does this (if it in fact works). It has a few strikes against it—not updated recently, costs money, and PPC build. If you wanted to know when an application had crashed that would be possible with a shell script, but knowing when an app is not responding is a pretty tall order. Edit: Here ...

If I get your question correctly you're looking for an application that gives you a notification when a given web site changes. If I'm wrong, ignore this answer. The widely accepted solution to this problem is RSS. Googling led me to an RSS Growler which might fulfill your needs. If the site you want notifications for doesn't support RSS there isn't an ...

if you are using KDE, it is real easy! just use the kdialog command that is built-in to KDE, as in the example below: kdialog --passivepopup "Example text" if you happen to be using plain ubuntu, then you need to install the libnotify-bin package by issuing the following command: sudo apt-get install libnotify-bin and then you can send messages with ...

Do they have to be Growl notifications? Tweetdeck has to option to add a 'search'-column and let's you set the notification-options for that. This results in a notification every time a new tweet matches your search parameters (and twitter's streaming feature makes it very fast)

If you prefer the format that GrowlTunes supplies, you can also create a script that uses it: tell application "GrowlTunes" to show current track

I suspect growlnotify is not in the PATH when run from quicksilver. In a Terminal, run which growlnotify. It will tell you where the executable is located. (For me, it returns "/usr/local/bin/growlnotify"). Then, use the full path in your script, and it will always work, regardless of what is in the PATH environment variable.

You need a plugin for iTunes. Here it is.

What you need is growlnotify which is a CLI program to trigger growl notifications. You could use it as: ./script.sh;; growlnotify -m "done" It has a few more knobs you can play with, use growlnotify -h for more info

Modifiying Daniel Beck's answer if you do this slight change it makes it very nice. function long { command=$@ $command /usr/local/bin/growlnotify Finished -m "$command completed." } Then when you run 'long svn up' you will see message 'svn up completed.' Very nice if you run many time consuming shell scripts at the same time.

Now that OSX 10.8 and later has native notifications, this is how I accomplish the same goal via terminal-notifier: Install brew $ brew install terminal-notifier Add this to ~/.bash_profile: function gn { terminal-notifier -message ' ' -title 'Finished' } Make sure that you have sourced your profile with . ~/.bash_profile (not necessary for future ...

I guess it is a little late but I have done up a simple man page. Can you take a look and see if it clarifies the usage? https://raw.github.com/psinnott/gntp-send/master/gntp-send.man NAME gntp-send - Utility for sending notifications to Growl using UDP or GNTP protocols SYNOPSIS gntp-send [-u] [-a APPNAME] [-n NOTIFY] [-s SERVER:PORT] [-p PASSWORD] ...

I had put together a quick display to mimic this, literally just using the SDK and a quick hack up of the Windows 10 Notification system. Unfortunately notifications require a higher version of the .NET framework than Growl uses (Displays are build for 2.0), so it requires a helper exe which simply takes one argument, the description for the notification. ...

Use growlnotify. ls && growlnotify -H localhost -m "message"

This is fixed here. The new feature can be found in the Adium 1.5 nightly builds here. Those nightlies might be pretty unstable. I don't know if they work yet, I'm just now trying one out for the same reason. So far so good.

From the Growl website: To uninstall Growl: Download the Growl uninstaller. Run it.

The best way to do this is create an AppleScript that launches both applications, save that applescript as an application and use that to launch iTunes and GrowlTunes. In Mac OS X, there is no (easy) functionality that detects application launches. However, GrowlTunes is designed to be an always open menu extra application, and in fact has a way to launch ...
