alert2

alert is a program that displays a full-screen alert. In this version, the message is read in from a text file. It's done in the style of glitch-art, like the other one I made.

If you have wmctrl installed, this alert will 100% be full-screen. You can use the esc (escape) key to exit, just because there's no button to click on this one. If you want to install wmctrl use:

sudo apt-get update -y && sudo apt-get install -y wmctrl

You can also customise the colours used. Rename the file '_colours.txt' to 'colours.txt' and edit. If the file can't be found, the alert will default back to the generic blue colour scheme.

Colour Scheme 1:
background:255,244,0
text:0,234,255
shadow:0,0,255
Colour Scheme 2 (CPC):
background:0,0,128
text:255,255,0
shadow:255,0,0

Lastly, if you include a > on the last line of your message, it will blink. Remove the > character at the end of the message to remove the blink effect.
