Indicator Msg (Rolling info)


#1

Digging around the net Trying this Cmd and that Cmd to get the Last system Msg’s to display in the terminal I cam across on that kind of works and would like to get some help on making it better OR if you have a better way to get these Msg’s do display in the terminal I would greatly appreciate it.

This is what I ran across

dbus-monitor "interface='org.freedesktop.Notifications'"    |     \
> grep --line-buffered  "member=Notify\|string"

this gives me something like this

method call time=1534045699.046024 sender=:1.107 -> destination=org.freedesktop.Notifications serial=814 path=/org/freedesktop/Notifications; interface=org.freedesktop.Notifications; member=Notify
   string "Chromium"
   string "file:///tmp/.org.chromium.Chromium.8RQiGV"
   string "96% - Remote.Desktop.Manager.Enterprise.13.6.7.0.rar"
   string "166.18 MB of 172.31 MB
      string "24"
      string "Open Manager"
      string "default"
      string "Activate"
         string "urgency"
         string "desktop-entry"
         variant             string "chromium-browser"
         string "image_path"
         variant             string "/tmp/.org.chromium.Chromium.HKRJBp"
         string "image-path"
         variant             string "/tmp/.org.chromium.Chromium.HKRJBp"
method call time=1534045702.047663 sender=:1.107 -> destination=org.freedesktop.Notifications serial=815 path=/org/freedesktop/Notifications; interface=org.freedesktop.Notifications; member=Notify
   string "Chromium"
   string "file:///tmp/.org.chromium.Chromium.8RQiGV"
   string "99% - Remote.rar"
   string "170.89 MB of 172.31 MB
      string "25"
      string "Open Manager"
      string "default"
      string "Activate"
         string "urgency"
         string "desktop-entry"
         variant             string "chromium-browser"
         string "image_path"
         variant             string "/tmp/.org.chromium.Chromium.veuuOm"
         string "image-path"
         variant             string "/tmp/.org.chromium.Chromium.veuuOm"

which is almost what I want. (I think) I love information and I like to know what is going on or if I missed a notification while I was a way from the box

Will / is this the best option to get this information?

this works but i’m not sure it is coded correctly.

   dbus-monitor "interface='org.freedesktop.Notifications'"    |     \
    > grep --line-buffered  "member=Notify\|string"
