fnottctl is used to interact (dismiss notifications, show and select action for notifications) with fnott(1).

The most common operation is fnottctl dismiss. This will dismiss the highest priority notification. You might want to bind this to a keyboard shortcut in your Wayland compositor configuration.

To see, and select between, actions associated with the notification, use fnottctl actions. This requires a dmenu-like utility to have been configured in fnott.ini(5).

You can optionally specify a notification ID, to dismiss (or show actions for) a specific notification instead of the highest priority one.

For dismiss, there is also the special ID all which will, not unsurprisingly, dismiss all notifications.
