There is no in systemd --user mode. I solved it by using in the batsignal.service.

Please rename the source tarball to ${pkgname}-${pkgver}.tar.gz so that it's more distinct in a shared srcdir, eg as:

diff --git a/PKGBUILD b/PKGBUILD

I've never setup a custom notification, nor created units for systemd, therefor a little confused on how to implement this under Gnome 3. I've created the unit file as @d0lphin describes and saved as batsignal.service and saved within


Enabled and started the service

systemctl enable batsignal && systemctl start batsignal

..but nothing seems to happen. Checking the Gnome service

systemctl status batsignal

shows it as

active (running)

Gnome's notifications

settings >> notifications

does not show batsignal. Anyone able to assist in what I'm missing out in my setup? I'm presuming from the manual that each f/w/c/d command will need a corresponding F/W/C/D notification text? Should that be added to the unit?

Feel free to add this unit file:

Description=Lightweight battery daemon

ExecStart=/usr/bin/batsignal -f 90 -w 20 -c 10 -d 3
