Run this command below to send a message to the main screen of KODI.

curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{"jsonrpc":"2.0","method":"GUI.ShowNotification","params":{"title":"MY COOL TITLE","message":"HELLO WORLD"},"id":1}'

Tip1: (thanks to forum user MacUsers !)
Create a auto restart command for xbmc:

First of all make sure you have proper rights to perform the command:
sudo su
Then create a xbmc-restart command:
printf '#!/bin/bash\nkill -9 `pidof xbmc.bin`' > /usr/local/bin/xbmc-restart
Make it executable:
chmod +x /usr/local/bin/xbmc-restart

Sorry, I don't understand, doesn't systemctl restart kodi. Restart?

systemctl does restart kodi on libreelec/openelec. On other linux systems I don't know.
