Anyway if someone stumbles on this thread looking for a more flexible alternative to notify-osd, xfce-nofyd is what I'm using right now. This is a screenshot that shows a preview of its design (https://image.ibb.co/mQe9Fn/2018_02_18_ ... _scrot.png)

It is an alternative notification service that works over full screen applications and can be customized through the xfce4-notifyd-config (you may have to install it first if you haven't done it yet and want to tweak the xfce notification service).

If, after you have installed xfce-notifyd, your linux os is still starting notify-osd by default (you may have to restart the system after the installation) you can rename the notify-osd's service file so to prevent its execution

Code: Select all

 cd /usr/share/dbus-1/services
   sudo mv org.freedesktop.Notifications.service org.freedesktop.Notifications.service.disabled


and make sure org.xfce.xfce4-notifyd.Notifications.service is in that same folder (/usr/share/dbus-1/services), if not, just create it with leafpad or your editor of choice

Code: Select all

[D-BUS Service]
Name=org.freedesktop.Notifications
Exec=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/xfce4/notifyd/xfce4-notifyd
