Assuming that the wife is right now using our desktop Kubuntu machine, probably surfing the web in Firefox or using Digikam. After logging into the machine via SSH, what can I do to 'pop up' little things to make her smile?
I've already figured out that
notify-send "Hi Ety" will pop up KDE's messaging system and that she'll get the message. Is there anything else I can do, such as maybe start playing a song that she likes with Amarok? I'm not sure if
amarok -e /some-song.mp3 is actually getting sent to Amarok on her desktop.
Any other ideas? Anything from the mildly annoying to the very sweet would be appreciated!
