View Full Version : [gnome] Forward GNOME notification balloons to another computer?

April 25th, 2008, 12:06 AM
I have a few computers, which I usually access headless/remotely through the network. They are all running GNOME Ubuntu. I am wondering if there's a way to forward notification balloons from one computer to another.

In other words, if I set my home server for automatic updates, and after an update it needs to be rebooted, the Update Manager notification balloon saying "you need to reboot" should show up on my laptop's notification area, but prefixed with something or in a different color or something to indicate it is coming from my home server.

They pop up due to dbus messages, right? So it should be possible to copy those dbus messages to another machine?

Is there any way to do this?
