Change Notification Systems
Regolith ships with a notification system called Rofication. This system is designed to work in the background and not use pop-ups as a way of alerting the user to a new notification. Rather, a small bar item displays the current number of unread notifications and a dialog can be loaded to view and delete them. This page is allows you to enable a more traditional notification UI.
For this exercise we'll use dunst but similar steps can be used for other notification components.
- Stage your own i3 config file (tutorial) and i3xrocks config file.
- Disable the Rofication backend by removing or commenting out the following line from
# exec --no-startup-id /usr/share/rofication/rofication-daemon.py
- Disable the Rofication front end by editing
~/.config/regolith/i3xrocks/configand commenting out the rofication blocklet:
... # Rofication # # Displays notifications. #[rofication] #command=/usr/share/i3xrocks/rofication-statusi3blocks.py
$ sudo apt install dunst
- Log out and back in. Test your notifications with
notify-send test123. You should see a pop-up from
