Dunst is a highly configurable and lightweight notification-daemon: The
only thing it displays is a colored box with unformatted text. The whole
notification specification (non-optional parts and the "body" capability) is
supported as long as it fits into this look & feel.
Dunst is designed to fit nicely into minimalistic windowmanagers like dwm, but
it should work on any Linux desktop.
