Visual hardware notifications for Ubuntu
udev–notify is a simple free software app for Ubuntu that runs in background and shows visual notifications when you plug-in a new device – Camera, Joystick, Removable Drive, Media Player etc…
It uses udev for monitoring hardware changes, and NotifyOSD for the notifications.
Supports Ubuntu 9.04, 9.10, 10.04, 10.10, 11.04 and derivatives – USU, Mint etc. (as long as they have udev installed).
Ubuntu Repository (run the following commands in Terminal):
echo "deb http://download.learnfree.eu/repository/skss / #SKSS" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list wget http://download.learnfree.eu/repository/skss/repo.pub.asc -q -O- | sudo apt-key add - sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install udev-notify
You must restart your user session after the installation. Then plug some device, to see if it works.
Source (in Bazaar): lp:udev-notify
About / Contacts / Bugs
udev-notify was created by Krasimir S. Stefanov (lokster) as part of the USU Linux project. It is a total rewrite of the older hal-notify app which was part of USU for a long time, but used the legacy HAL system.
