AFAIK there is no `wall' equivalent for the X Window environment. The
`wall' command writes messages to the "tty" terminals, whereas X
window uses a different mechanism.

You will need to write your own tool to do this. A basic idea can be
to use the D-Bus to send notification/message to a Gnome or KDE applet
specifically created for this purpose. Hmmm, a good project to do :-)
