       gnome-osd-client - A GNOME OSD shell interface


       gnome-osd-client [-h] [--help] [-f] [--full] [-s] [--stdin] [--dbus] [message]


       The  gnome-osd-client  command  allows  you  to  send  Gnome  OSD notifications from shell


       -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.


       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

              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.



       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>"
