Thanks a lot for the pointer. This one works (on both desktop and Maemo):

import dbus
bus = dbus.SessionBus()
proxy = bus.get_object('org.freedesktop.Notifications', '/org/freedesktop/Notifications')
interface = dbus.Interface(proxy,dbus_interface='org.freedesktop.Notifications')
interface.Notify('Notification', 0, 'control_bluetooth_paired', 'Testing 123', 'Hello World', [], {}, 0)

I tried getting sound to work, using stuff such as:

hints = {}
hints["sound-name"] = "phone-incoming-call"
hints["sound-file"] = "file:///usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pygame/examples/data/boom.wav"
hints["icon-path"] = "file:///usr/share/icons/freedoom1.png"
interface.Notify('Notification', 2, 'device', 'Testing 123', 'Hello World', [], dbus.Dictionary(hints, signature='sv'), 0)

...but I did not have any success. I'm not sure 'hints' are
passed correctly.

I can get very short click using

interface.SystemNoteDialog("Hello", 0, "ok")

(but that only works on Maemo and is not really suitable for SMS).

If you get 3D to work, can I ask for an announcement? :-)

Would you have pointers to some kind of melodies I could use? So far
I'm using


and looking for something better.
