"Reduce the notify-osd time-out to 3 seconds, rather than the default 10.

"Its amazing how much this changed my appreciation of the notifications… I have found the annoyance is mainly based on them being on screen too long.

"Tested on Lucid 10.04 64bit – experimental.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:silverwave/apps-0
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install notify-osd
