sometimes it it useful to get a notification on your desktop for things you have to keep in mind. but sometimes it is to unhandy to enter an appointment in the calendar program. use the bash instead:

- open the bash (terminal)

- if you want the notification on a certain time, for example 12 o'clock sharp, type in: at 12.00 --> press enter

- than type in: notify-send "yourtext"

- to end the command, press Ctrl+D


this should work with gnome, kde, cinnamon. other desktops I don't know.

@MagicMint: because using the command line is more full of hot air ;)

@jun-sw: Why not use the Alarm Clock applet or the likes ? I find it more useful ;-)

@publicFriend: That’s because at isn’t installed by default in Linux Mint, hence you have to install it first.

at 12.00 notify-send "Text"
