gnome-osd-client - A GNOME OSD shell interface SYNOPSIS
gnome-osd-client [-h] [--help] [-f] [--full] [-s] [--stdin] [--dbus] [message] DESCRIPTION
The gnome-osd-client command allows you to send Gnome OSD notifications from shell scripts. OPTIONS
-h --help Display help on command-line options. -f --full Enable "full" message specification syntax, which is XML based. -s --stdin Read message from stdin instead of command-line. --dbus Always use D-BUS instead of Bonobo as IPC mechanism. By default Bonobo is used, unless it is not available, in which case D-BUS is tried next. This option reverses this order. MESSAGE FORMAT
The protocol used by GNOME OSD is XML based (surprise!). <message ..attributes..> ...pango markup... </message> For a description of pango markup, see The <message> XML element accepts the following attributes: id This allows you to create or use alternative OSD instance; By specifying different IDs, you can keep several messages on the screen at the same time. But for each ID, only one message can be displayed at a time. If not specified, id='default' is assumed. inherit Can be used in conjunction with 'id', to specify that the new OSD instance (which must not already exist) inherits properties from the instance identified by 'inherit'. If not specified, inherit='default'. Any gnome-osd gconf key name (run "gconf-editor /apps/gnome-osd" for a list, with respective documentation) These control several message properties. This can not be used for messages with ID 'default'. Property overrides are remembered across messages for the same ID. For instance, if you specify animations='false' for id='foo', next message with id='foo' will have animations turned off by default. Example: .PP gnome-osd-client -f "<message id='myplugin' osd_fake_translucent_bg='on' osd_vposition='center' animations='off' hide_timeout='1000' osd_halignment='right'>Volume: 96%</message>" AUTHOR
