Wasn't there a plugin created for this a while back? Is there a reason that isn't good enough for this?

comment:2 Changed 12 years ago by tuyan

Yes.there was. Then trayicon moved into the core instead of being a plugin..

comment:3 Changed 12 years ago by deryni

No, I meant for the libnotify stuff specifically. I know the tray icon is core.

comment:4 Changed 12 years ago by tuyan

Possible..As i remember , i could not make it work, so i wrote this one..This needs polishing a bit tho..

So debian has a gaim-libnotify package, is there a reason that doesn't work for you? (If you aren't using debian the plugin itself should still work.)

comment:6 Changed 12 years ago by tuyan

As i said before, i could not make it work with the version of gaim i was using.I have the simpler version of the patch in sourceforge site also.And now, i am using pidgin and ported my patch from gaim to pidgin.

Ok, so what not just fix the plugin to work with pidgin? What didn't work about it? If debian has a package for it they think it works with at least the version of gaim they ship.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

closing because a plugin can do this.

Pidgin should really ship a libnotify plugin

comment:10 Changed 11 years ago by liviopl

+1, because Pidgin should notify in a visible, but not yet intrusive way about new messages and other events.
