Recently I didn’t have much time to hack on Message Notifier, but luckily Guillaume Desmottes ported it to Gnome 3.6. This version also changes the shortcut to open the menu from
Win+L, as the former is now used by the shell.
To update, just visit the extension page and click on the update button next to the on/off switch.
The LazyWeb was not that useful but I was able to find a plugin that does what I need. It is listed in the plugins page on xchat.org but for some reasons I didn’t find it the first time I searched.
The notify channels plugin has every basic feature I need, and it’s also simple enough to be modified adding some other useful features I would like to have.
Update: the plugin doesn’t work anymore, xchat-gnome doesn’t load it even if it’s listed in the gconf key
/apps/xchat/plugins/loaded. The plugin is not even listed in the “Scripts and Plugins” tab in the preferences dialog. Suggestions on how to fix this?
Is there a way to get a notification pop-up every time someone says something in some IRC rooms? But only in some configured rooms! I don’t want a pop-up for every message in every room as I’m paid to work, not to read IRC.
I’m using xchat-gnome and no, I don’t want to use xchat.
