Using BashPodder with Notify OSD

I thought wouldn’t it be nice take advantage of the new Notify OSD, in Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope, to tell me when BashPodder is finished downloading the podcasts. So, I took at advantage of it.

Since, BashPodder is written in Bash, I installed the libnotify-bin package to be able send a notification and have it display the notification. To do that, I typed in the following command in the terminal (without the dollar sign.)

$ sudo apt-get install libnotify-bin

Then I added the following at the end of the file “” as one line.

notify-send -i terminal BashPodder "BashPodder has finished downloading the podcasts."
