[ Thanks to SilverWave for this link.
"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.
"Quick Fix: Add the PPA and update:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:silverwave/apps-0
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install notify-osd
