Xfce Notifyd In i3wm

Create the file /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.freedesktop.Notifications.service and add the following

[D-BUS Service]

The exec path looks like the one above on fedora, you can look for the executable using find or download the package xfce4-notifyd from pkgs.org, e.g. this is the wanted package in fedora xfce4-notifyd-0.6.3-1.fc36.x86_64.rpm*

Go to files and look this executable xfce4-notyfyd then copy its path and put it in Exec in the notifications service. Finally save the service file and restart your session, sometimes it’s not needed,

Test the notification with this command

notify-send Test "oi m8 i'm a working notification"

Now an Xfce styled notification with the same message will appear.

If not, double-check the service file, and restart your session.

* the version may vary :)
