       notify-send - a program to send desktop notifications


       notify-send [OPTIONS] <summary> [body]


       With notify-send you can sends desktop notifications to the user via a notification daemon
       from the command line.  These notifications can be used to inform the user about an  event
       or display some form of information without getting in the user's way.

       -t, --expire-time=TIME
              The duration, in milliseconds, for the notification to appear on screen.  (Ubuntu's
              Notify OSD and GNOME Shell both ignore this parameter.)

       -i, --icon=ICON[,ICON...]
              Specifies an icon filename or stock icon to display.

       -c, --category=TYPE[,TYPE...]
              Specifies the notification category.

          Help options:

       -?, --help
              Show this help message

       -h, --hint=TYPE:NAME:VALUE
              Specifies basic extra data to pass. Valid types are int, double, string and byte.
