I wrote a python script to use the new notification system introduced in Jaunty and now I have updated it use work with later releases of Ubuntu.
* Notifies when a contact comes online, when they have a birthday soon or when a file transfer is completed..
It's kind of distracting seeing the notification pop up when you're already in the chat window.I'd personally only like to see a chat notification if I was in another application.Is this info sent in the variables sent in the events?valerie-23: I have a rough script working to do what you ask.If the window is unfocused it will notify and add an indicator - which will disappear if the chat gains focus before the indicator is clicked.
I'll re-look over the code and clean it up a bit then post it here in a few days.Glad that someone else finds it useful : DCould someone please do this for Thunderbird? hi, here you can find an experimental version of a notify for thunderbird.check it out: https://launchpad.net/libnotify-mozilla (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/thunderbird/addon/11530) it works very well and i don't have any trouble with that add-on.cu Pate So now I have 2 files 1) 2) modified #1 (skype-dbus-service.py) runs in the background and waits for #2 to send it notifications.This means we can use the indicator-applet and append messages to an existing notification bubble.Major Changes * Notifications are now not shown if the chat window has focus * New messages are added to the indicator-applet until clicked or the chat window is clicked Instructions * Download the attachments and save to your Home Folder * open Skype - Options * Press 'Notifications' then 'Advanced View' * [x] Mark 'Execute the following script on _any_ notification' Paste python /home/your-ubuntu-login-name/-e"%type" -n"%sname" -f"%fname" -p"%fpath" -m"%smessage" -s%fsize -u%sskype * you can enable and disable individual notifications: just uncheck "Display pop-up notification" * Press 'Apply' Now * In the panel, open System Startup Applications * Click 'Add'.
