Description:

What is it?
Colibri provides an alternative to KDE4 Plasma notifications.

Colibri notifications look lighter and are completely passive: they do not provide any buttons. You may or may not like this.

Since they are completely passive, they smoothly fade away when you mouse over them, allowing you to interact with any window behind them.

They also do not stack each others: if multiple notifications happen, they will be shown one at a time.

Dependencies

You need kdelibs >= 4.4.

Setup
Colibri can be configured from its System Settings module.
If you need help follow the setup howto at http://gitorious.org/colibri/pages/SetupHowto.

A bit of history

Passive notifications for Plasma first appeared as "Ayatana notifications", an alternative notification system I implemented in Kubuntu Karmic as part of my work for Canonical.

Ayatana notifications were implemented as a patch against the systemtray applet. Colibri is based on this work, but does not require patching any applet.

Colibri contains code I wrote for Canonical, but it is not a Canonical product.




Changelog:

2013.05.14 - 0.3.0
Fixes
- Bring back drop shadows in KDE SC 4.10
- Use KMessageWidget in KCM
- Remove blank lines between concatenated notifications
- Moved to kde.org git repository

2011.09.25 - 0.2.2
Fixes
- Plug three small mem leaks. Should also fix a rare crasher. (Aurélien Gâteau)

Translations
- Brasilian Portuguese (Caio Romão)
- Slovakian (Slavko)
- Italian (Federico Chiacchiaretta)
- Czech (Pavel Fric)
- Spanish (gejo)

2010.08.06 - 0.2.1
Fixes
- Disable KWin shadows.
- Quit if we can't register as the notification handler.

2010.08.05 - 0.2.0
New features
- When a second notification arrives from the same application, using the same title, append it to the existing notification.
- Notifications use blurred background on KDE 4.5.
- Notifications use a background halo behind text, similar to what Plasma tooltips do since KDE 4.4, as well as the Plasma theme foreground color.
- Implemented support for the replacesId parameter.
- It is now possible to specify the screen where the notifications will appear.
- A "Preview" button has been added to the KCM.
- It is now possible to start Colibri from within the KCM.
- Turkish translation by Ozan Çağlayan.
- German translation by Michael Gangolf.
- Serbian translation for desktop file by Mladen Pejaković.

Fixes
- KCM is now translatable.
- The KCM has moved (again!) to the notification group.
- Use an autostart file to start Colibri instead of relying on the DBus service
system. This solves file conflict problems with other notification systems and
ensures Colibri is started when the first KDE notification is sent.
- Fixed linking with gold.

2010.02.16 - 0.1.1
- Moved the KCM to the Desktop category.
- Emit the NotificationClosed() signal when a notification is closed. This fixes double notifications from Banshee.
- Implement the CloseNotification() method.

2009.12.15 - 0.1.0
- First release.

I haven't used it yet but since I hate the notifications in KDE4, I can tell this good news :)

It might be smooth-tasks(http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/Smooth+Tasks?content=101586)

Also in Plasma 4.4 the taskbar will automatically use icon only when in vertical mode or when there is not enough space.

avanata is a kubuntu thing and AFAIK is not available on other kde distros. because it was not accepted by the kde upstream. colibri tries to bring same feature to other kde distributions who dont have the ayanata notification.

I should probably add another excerpt from the README to the description:

---------
Passive notifications for Plasma first appeared as "Ayatana notifications", an
alternative notification system I implemented in Kubuntu Karmic as part of my
work for Canonical.

Ayatana notifications were implemented as a patch against the systemtray
applet. Colibri is based on this work, but does not require patching any
applet.

Colibri contains code I wrote for Canonical, but it is not a Canonical product.

Strange, I do not get this error here (I am on Kubuntu 9.10 as well). Is it a real error or just a warning?

I get the same error too, also on Kubuntu 9.10. I have no clue what it means, maybe I'm doing something wrong? I have cmake installed, and I'm on KDE 4.4 RC2

Alright, I finally got it to compile successfully after installing kdelibs5-dev, g++, and x11proto-xext-dev (sudo apt-get install those should do for Kubuntu 9.10).

sorry, I'm really confused here, I'm gettin that under other distros ayatana isn't implemented, but why use colibri under kubuntu karmmic, where ayatana is avaiable?

It is probably not very useful with Karmic, unless you use xinerama (handling of xinerama is a bit nicer in Colibri).

It will be useful for Lucid, though, because the Ayatana patches won't be included in it.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
