i was alway seeking for an alternative to tools like zenity or xosd wich
would integrate well with dwm.

Well, you guess it, I couldn't find any :).

Thats why i wrote a small and simple utility called 'dzen'. It will take
any message from standard input and display it in a very similar way to

'dzen' takes a couple of options (see README) and basically displays a
message for a specified period of time (defaulting to 5 seconds). To get
rid of the message before it times out simply click with any mouse
button onto it.

echo -n "This is a message" | dzen -bg darkred -fg grey80 -fn fixed -t 10

Anyone that might find it useful can get it here:

Bye, Rob
