Notification bubbles via dbus in Gnome on Ubuntu.

Discussion in 'Python' started by Neil Woolford, Apr 9, 2006.

  1. I'd like to be able to pop up a notification bubble like the ones used by Ubuntu
    for 'updates available' etc. In particular I'd like to be able to use them to
    warn users of other machines that I have started a background session for
    maintenance and not to worry if the computer seems to be doing things that
    aren't related to their session.

    I believe these bubbles are handled by the notification-daemon, listening on
    dbus for messages from libnotify0.

    Can this be controlled from Python via the Python-Dbus bindings?

    I haven't been able to turn up any detail or example programs yet; am I
    completely on the wrong track or can it be done?

    If it can, might it make a reasonable project for me as a complete beginner with
    Python though some experience with other languages? Or would I be biting off
    more than a beginner is likely te be able to deal with?

    Neil
