Notifications in Lubuntu/Openbox

Customizing Lubuntu is mostly down to personal preference. I like things a certain way and I’ve listed a tweaks that I do on a fresh install of Lubuntu/Openbox.

Change notification time:

Firstly, we need to install xfce notification daemon by

sudo apt-get install xfce4-notifyd

Then we can change the preferred settings by invoking the following command:


 Volume notification via fn key:

This is an fundamental for any operating system and Openbox can have it too.

The way to get this working is by installing the xfce volume notifications daemon

sudo apt-get install xfce4-volumed

Then we navigate to Menu -> Preferences -> Default applications for LXSession

Click the Autostart tab

Then all we need to do is check the XFCE Volume Daemon box

Then a restart is in order to get the fn+vol keys notification working.
