Send Message to Other Linux Computer


In a given location i have 20 -25 systems all having either  SLED 11 and SLED 11 SP1 OS

Now the thing is i want to send messages to all 20-25 systems.
The Message should PopUp like a Alert Window Box.

Kindly suggest how to achieve this.

you can use LinPopUp ( it uses samba )

LinPopUp dependencies cant be resolved with SLED... i tried to find its lib files but no luck...

ny other option....


checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /bin/mkdir -p
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
configure: error: gnome-doc-utils >= 0.3.2 not found

i get this error
also i want to send message amoung different linux system....

ie from my Desktop ill send message to those 20-25 system

and ya zenity is not helpful over ssh sending
LinpopUP doesnt work too... gives some smbclient error...
according to my knw smbclient is used from Linux to windows which is not helpful...
thanks it was a bit helpful in that.... but it acts like a messenger.....

I just want a alert BOX to popup on all the desktop of does 20-25 desktop users......
an example type : zenity --info --text 'Please Log Out'
But only thing is i want 2 send this via SSH to all the system which is not possible i guess...

hm..... I found this mailing list ....

please have a look , see if this helps :

couldnt figure how it works.... i tried with the export display...

i just keep on getting

No protocol specified
(zenity:4443): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0
