Modified Notify OSD with close-on-click

PPA description

Please don't use this PPA! I will not be making any further updates to this PPA. leolik, the author of the original modified Notify OSD, has updated his PPA to include the close-on-click and the bubble-prevent-fade features from here.

His PPA can be found here:


leolik's Modified Notify-OSD ( for Ubuntu Natty.

Hacked to add two new settings (disabled by default):
* bubble-prevent-fade: Stops the bubble from fading out when the mouse pointer hovers over it
* bubble-close-on-click: Closes a notification when clicked on

bubble-prevent-fade = 1
bubble-close-on-click = 1

to ~/.notify-osd to enable both.

* Use Avant Window Navigator, as described here: Docks aren't for me, but to each their own...
* Use xfce4-notifyd. This also allows for the closing of notifications by clicking on them.

If you do not need the extra options above but would still like to have the added features of leolik's patch, IRIE Shinsuke maintains a version of leolik's Notify-OSD for Natty:

If you find yourself often closing the notifications accidentally, check out Jason Conti's Recent Notifications applet:
