#StackBounty: #xfce #notification #window-manager #i3-wm Choose notification daemon having multiple window managers

Bounty: 50

I have Xubuntu 16.04 and multiple window managers installed. I’m migrating from Xfce to i3wm, but in the meantime I want to maintain both installed in my system. So I don’t want to uninstall any package now.

When I installed i3wm, my notification daemon in Xfce session became dunst. I want to be able to choose between dunst and xfce4-notifyd.

My D-Bus configuration seems to be using Xfce notification daemon:

# cat /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.xfce.xfce4-notifyd.Notifications.service
[D-BUS Service]

So, how can I choose notification daemon being used by configuration?
