Add quotes to be notified on the desktop via Notifis (Ubuntu Software Center)
Ubuntu ships by default a handy notification system that, via a fancy top-right corner bubble, displays notifications of Gwibber tweets, Thunderbird emails, download process completed, etc, basically, allowing applications to utilize a user-friendly notification method.
Notifis is an interesting utility, that, via a simplistic "attitude", allows the user to enjoy time interval-bounded desktop notifications, featuring wise words/famous quotes.
Launching Notifies, pushes its appindicator into the Unity panel, "backed" by a dialog, from where the interval of time is to be selected (time period necessary for a quote to be notified).
The exposed-on-the-desktop quotes are picked from a text file (containing, by default, a limited number of quotes), in order to add new quotes/preferred words, navigate to
notifis_default.txt, and add desired text pieces and/or clicking the
notifis_default.txt area (under
Get text from this file), then select a text file (the file must have a TXT termination, such as
mytextfile.txt, in order to be recognized by Notifis) filled with quotes/wise words/famous reminders, etc.
Adding new quotes to a text file, such as
mytextfile.txt, are to be aligned as (separated by a . (dot) and 1 line of space)
This is a quote.
This is a second quote.
This is a third quote.
The constantly displayed quotes can be easily cycled by pressing
Next under Notifis appindicator.
Notifis 12.07.1 is available for free via Ubuntu Software Center.
Notifis has been created as part of Ubuntu App Showdown.
