Here is a little Emacs Lisp snippet that I've started using. It makes
Emacs pop up a desktop-wide notification when a compilation finishes,
i.e. after "
M-x compile" is done. Let's see if that keeps me from
wasting time in the web when I launch a compilation.
(setq compilation-finish-functions (append compilation-finish-functions '(fmq-compilation-finish))) (defun fmq-compilation-finish (buffer status) (call-process "notify-send" nil nil nil "-t" "0" "-i" "emacs" "Compilation finished in Emacs" status))
