Following the Gnome desktop notification specification, urgency levels
are:
- low
- normal
- critical

See: https://developer.gnome.org/notification-spec/#urgency-levels

This seems to be also the case for notify-send command
https://www.galago-project.org/specs/notification/0.9/x320.html.

Note: we do not remove high level to not break existing configurations.

mako

A lightweight notification daemon for Wayland. Works on Sway.

mako implements the GNOME Desktop Notifications Specification.

Feel free to join the IRC channel: ##emersion on irc.freenode.net.

Running

mako will run automatically when a notification is emitted. This happens via D-Bus activation, so you don't really need to explicitly start it up (this also allows delaying its startup time and speed up system startup).

If you have several notification daemons installed though, you might want to explicitly start this one. Some ways of achieving this is:

  • If you're using Sway you can start mako on launch by putting exec mako in your configuration file.

  • If you are using elogind, you might need to manually start a dbus user session: dbus-daemon --session --address=unix:path=$XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/bus

Configuration

mako can be extensively configured and customized - feel free to read more using the command man 5 mako

For control of mako during runtime, makoctl can be used; see man makoctl

Building

Install dependencies:

  • meson (build-time dependency)
  • wayland
  • pango
  • cairo
  • systemd or elogind (for the sd-bus library)
  • gdk-pixbuf (optional, for icons support)
  • dbus (runtime dependency, user-session support is required)
  • scdoc (optional, for man pages)
  • jq (optional, runtime dependency)

Then run:

meson build
ninja -C build
build/mako
