comment How to read result from the first step of parallel?
Your post doesn't make sense... What are you trying to do there with your last example ? Because of $(....), parallel is trying to run whatever that expands to, e.g. RECEIVED THIS... and there is no such command... Again, why don't you simply try something like ls ./* | parallel -j+0 ./script2.sh "$(./script1.sh {})" or even better, do everything in one script and run it in parallel ?

comment How to read result from the first step of parallel?
Works fine here with a simple script that counts line numbers in each file... anyway, it doesn't matter. Why don't you do everything in one script that you then run in parallel (it's quite unclear - to me, at least - what you're trying to accomplish) ?

comment Is it possible to query messages that were sent with notify-send?
Have a look here... You'll have to adapt those python scripts to your needs (extract only the message text and save it to a log file)

comment Is it possible to query messages that were sent with notify-send?
I don't think you can unless you start listening to notifications (at session start-up, that is) and log them to a file.

If you introspect the object is there a property called "CanSetFullscreen" ? If so, is it set to true or false ?

comment toggle vlc fullscreen using dbus and mpris
I have neither of awm, qdbus or vlc installed so just shooting in the dark... You could try with: qdbus org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.vlc /org/mpris/MediaPlayer2 Fullscreen true assuming CanSetFullscreen is true.
