Growl notifications via [shell] – not working

Dec 11 2011 | 3:24 pm

Hi all, the following (which works in Terminal) does not work through the [shell] object.

in a message object: growlnotify -m "Test"

Any ideas why this won’t work? cheers :)


OSX.6.8 – Max 5.1.8 – must have the growlnotify command line extra installed

Hey Tim,

Not many people know about growl. Maybe you should explain a bit a few things if you want more help in the forum. :)

I also see you need to install a few things before you get growl started with terminal.

Try this : usr/local/bin/growlnotify -m "Test"

Ah, thanks nnimar. Interesting – I don’t have to do this to use other command line tools with [shell] (such as sox). Perhaps install locations differ … will look into it – pretty sure sox is in the same bin directory though.


You’re right ygreq – could have provided a bit more info but it’s ok now :)

Yep – move the growlnotify UEF from usr/local/bin to /bin and specifying a path is no longer necessary. Good to know!
