Installation of Notification Daemon

Install Notification Daemon by running the following commands:

./configure --prefix=/usr     \
            --sysconfdir=/etc \
            --disable-static  &&
make

This package does not come with a testsuite.

Now, as the root user:

make install

You can test the notification daemon with the command notify-send:

pgrep -l notification-da &&
notify-send -i info Information "Hi ${USER}, This is a Test"

The command pgrep -l notification-da is added to assure that it is the daemon of this package that is running, not another one, e.g. the daemon from xfce4-notifyd-0.6.3.
