Boring with the default notification bubbles and want a change? A patched version of Notify OSD, Canonical’s on-screen notification agent, is available and allows you to customize the pop-up bubbles via a simple graphical tool.

With it, you can:

  • Move notification bubble position.
  • Notification display time out.
  • Click to close the bubble.
  • Change background color, opacity
  • Configure bubble width, icon size, etc.
  • Edit the text color, size, opacity, etc.

configure notifyosd bubble
configure notifyosd text

Install patched NotifyOSD and configuration tool:

1. The patched version of Notify OSD is maintained in this PPA. Although the PPA doesn’t support for Ubuntu 16.10 so far, the Ubuntu 16.04 binaries works good on my 16.10 64-bit.

Download Notify OSD (patched, .deb)

Scroll-down and grab the:

  • notify-osd_0.9.35+16.04.20160415-0ubuntu1-leolik~ppa0_amd64.deb for 64-bit OS.
  • notify-osd_0.9.35+16.04.20160415-0ubuntu1-leolik~ppa0_i386.deb for 32-bit OS.

Then click to open and install the package via Ubuntu Software. Or install it using command:

sudo dpkg -i ~/Downloads/notify-osd_*.deb && sudo apt -f install

After that, restart the Notify OSD agent via command (open terminal via Ctrl+Alt+T):

sudo pkill nitify-osd

2. Download Notify OSD configuration tool from the link below:

Download NotifyOSDConfig (ubuntu16.10_amd64/i386.deb)

Also click install via Ubuntu Software. Once installed, launch it from Unity Dash / App Launcher and customize your on-screen notifications and enjoy!
