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.
Thank you for the tutorial.
I like it.
@jun-sw: Why not use the Alarm Clock applet or the likes ? I find it more useful ;-)
at 12.00 notify-send "Text"
