Desktop::Notify - Communicate with the Desktop Notifications framework
use Desktop::Notify; # Open a connection to the notification daemon my $notify = Desktop::Notify->new(); # Create a notification to display my $notification = $notify->create(summary => 'Desktop::Notify', body => 'Hello, world!', timeout => 5000); # Display the notification $notification->show(); # Close the notification later $notification->close();
This module provides a Perl interface to the Desktop Notifications framework.
The framework allows applications to display pop-up notifications on an X desktop. This is implemented with two components: a daemon that displays the notifications, and a client library used by applications to send notifications to the daemon. These components communicate through the DBus message bus protocol.

This module serves the same purpose as
libnotify, in an object-oriented Perl interface. It is not, however, an interface to
libnotify itself, but a separate implementation of the specification using Net::DBus.
Connect to the notification daemon. %opts can include the following options:
The application name to use for notifications. Default is
The Net::DBus mesage bus to use. Default is to call Net::DBus->session, which is usually where notification-daemon can be reached.
The DBus service name of the daemon. Default is org.freedesktop.Notifications.
The path to the notifications DBus object. Default is /org/freedesktop/Notifications.
The DBus interface to access the notifications object as. Default is org.freedesktop.Notifications.
Creates a new notification object that can be displayed later. This will return a Desktop::Notify::Notification object; see that module for information about using it.
Sets a user-specified function to be called whenever a notification is closed. It will be called with one argument, which is the Notification object that was just closed.
