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.

 How To enable it?

Score 50%

I'm a fan of ayatana notification system (look very nice with amarok's notifications, firefox's notifications and in general with the application's notifications) from Kubuntu KDE 4.3.4 karmic, now I just installed the ppa packages for the kde 4.4 beta1 and ayatana is gone away, then I've found this project Colibri, but I don't know how to enable it... I've successfully installed the sources, but my applications still continue to use the ugly kde 4.4 system tray notifications...

You must open the systemtray settings and uncheck the "Application notifications" box.

Have a look at Colibri README for more details.

Thank you very, very much! I just loved your Ayatana notifications and after installing KDE 4.4 beta, I was dismayed to find them missing. Now I installed Colibri and I'm happy again :)
By the way: great idea the „disappearing act” under the mouse!

This is just total beauty. Congratulations on your work, it makes the KDE Desktop (in my opinion) much more aesthetic and clean.
I only wish it would work with file transfer notifications.... and i want to contribute, the problem is that even tho i've done simple things in c++, i dont think i'm up to the task of adding it myself. Are there any ways for me to contribute? Im develop in Java and Python, and maybe this is a chance to get into c++, i just need some advice, because i really want this feature...
Thanks in advance!

Nice to hear you like it!

Behind the scenes, file transfers are completely different than notifications. It may take quite some work to integrate them as well.

I am also not sure it would be very handy because you want to be able to interact with a file transfer but Colibri notifications are passive (no buttons)

To me file transfers belong to the application, not to the workspace: I personally disabled Plasma handling of file transfers, so I get classic file transfer windows.

I supposed that file transfers were a different deal...
And youre right, file transfers dont necessarily belong to the workspace and i have them disabled from the notification area just like you do...
I guess my point is that the notification system you've created looks to me much more appealing than the kde one, and probably i should think of making the default one prettier and more like yours, than making yours behave like the default.

Thanks for replying. Keep up the good work!

 Multi-monitor

It would be nice if it had an option for multiple screens. For example, Yakuake can appear on "Screen 1", "Screen 2", ..., "At mouse location".

Currently the Colibri notifications seem to follow my window manager setting (appear on active screen), which is not always desirable.

Keep up the good work!

What do you have instead?

If notifications are represented as light grey rectangles with a black border, then probably the service file is not properly installed. Check that /usr/share/dbus-1/services/ contains a file named "org.freedesktop.Notifications.services" and that this file contains an Exec line pointing to the colibri binary.

If notifications are represented as Plasma notifications, open the systemtray settings: "Application notifications" should be unchecked.

I've the gray rectangle.
into the /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.freedesktop.Notifications.service
there is:
[D-BUS Service]
Name=org.freedesktop.Notifications
Exec=/usr/bin/colibri

can you make notifications autoupdate, if the same event gets modified often?

in my example its a volume change in mpd, that i send with notify-send. colibri shows queued notifications for every X step of the change, which can easily take a minute :) would be nice to see the live volume change inside of one notification.

Hi,

I guess you are the person I discussed with on #kde-devel about gmpc.

I did not understand you were using a custom script to send volume notifications, so could not reproduce your bug. Can you share how you configured the system to send volume info with notify-send?

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
