Description:

visnotes is a plug-in for all KDE users who want to have their pidgin being more integrated into KDE. It informs the users about status changes and new messages with pop-ups generated by knotify.

I was searching for a plug-in like this one but couldn't find anything fitting my needs. Other plug-ins sent messages to knotify via the terminal, but this prevented knotify to e.g. display the buddy's icon. visnotes uses D-Bus to send all the informations. Screenshots are appended. The look of the pop-up is determined by your Plasma-Theme.

To compile visnotes, you need Glib and D-Bus (+ GLib-DBus-Bindings).




Changelog:

v0.1: initial release
v0.1.1: updated configure
v0.1.2: updated configure
v0.2: working on kde4.4

hi Robert,

Flag -I/usr/include/dbus-1.0 is missing.

In "configure" at line 12063 you need to change this:
pkg_cv_PIDGIN_CFLAGS=`$PKG_CONFIG --cflags "pidgin purple" 2>/dev/null`

to this:
pkg_cv_PIDGIN_CFLAGS=`$PKG_CONFIG --cflags "pidgin purple dbus-1" 2>/dev/null`

Hi javier,
i guess you mean i should add the include path? I am not really sure why, but imo the include paths are already in there. I updated the configure so it looks for glib-devel and glib-dbus-devel (configure didn't do this before in v0.1). It should compile well now, if everything is installed properly.

@ all: pls comment! does it work for you and are there any problems? do you miss a feature?

hello,

unfortunately the flag is missing in 0.1.1, too. Doing a
sed -e 's/pkg_cv_PIDGIN_CFLAGS=`$PKG_CONFIG --cflags "pidgin purple\" 2>\/dev\/null`/pkg_cv_PIDGIN_CFLAGS=`$PKG_CONFIG --cflags "pidgin purple dbus-1" 2>\/dev\/null`/' -i configure
let the package build ony my arch system, but I don't think this is the "usual" way.

i guess the best way to compile is:

$ export CFLAGS="-I/usr/include/dbus-1.0"
$ ./configure
$ make
# make install

Hi all,
i updated visnotes another time (v0.1.2). As you said, the configure file didn't include the search paths for dbus-1. Now, when you compile it, all necessary search paths are given to gcc as an argument when you invoke make. I hope this is working for you now. Sorry for the inconveniences (i think i know the autotools much better now ...)

I like it very much, that's what I needed!

Now we just need Pidgin to start using libappindicator:

After compiling and installing the plugin I activated it in pidgin.
But no notification appears when I receive a message or a buddy changes his status.
I run pidgin with debug options.
I gaves me following output when I sent a message:

I used this plugin under gnome, and it loaded fine, although it shouldn't. i guess you know what you're doing and run it under kde4. Could you please print the debug output when you are loading the plugin?
i will have a look at this...

Now I can compile without export CFLAGS. :)

I get those debug messages:

I'm using KDE4.4 RC1 on OpenSuse 11.2.

Okay, i think i found out what the problem is. kde 4.4 doesn't seem to provide the service 'org.kde.VisualNotifications' anymore like the versions before. that means, you cannot use this plugin under kde 4.4. i don't have kde 4.4 installed, but maybe i can try it out later in a vm. kde 4.4 should provide the service 'org.freedesktop.notifications', which is dbus' generic notifications system, but using this in the plugin, that would mean you cannot use the plugin in kde < 4.4, but in every desktop implementing this notification system.

No more such black notifications in KDE 4.4.
http://www.kde-apps.org/CONTENT/content-pre2/118256-2.png

libnotify notifications in KDE 4.4 are displayed as KDE notifications.

the color of the notification is determined by your plasma theme, so if you don't have a black theme, then there will be no black notification.

currently i use KDE 4.3 so the libnotify plugin doesn't work for me (but i know this)

hi Robert,

now it works on KDE 4.4!
The only problem is there is no buddy icon in the notification:

http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/7358/visnotes.png

i got this in the debug window:

(18:47:06) core-schmidt-visnotes: Adrian (adrianxxxx@gmail.com), no icon
(18:47:06) core-schmidt-visnotes: notify()
(18:47:06) core-schmidt-visnotes: result = 14

Hi,
i know this, because the format of the image data sent to org.freedesktop.Notifications (== KDE4.4) is different from the one sent to org.kde.VisualNotifications. I will fix that in the next release.
