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.

- First release.

I'm a believer.Latency is a little high, tough.about 2 seconds. MOre real time notiifications would be awesome. Also, i had to add colibri to Startup so it works. great work!

 Notification stacking

 
 by RazZziel on: Feb 1 2010
 
Score 50%

Notifications don't stack by design or is it going to be fixed? Are patches wanted, or being worked in?

Myself, I find the current behavior very clumsy and unpleasant, at least it should be configurable, IMHO (just a "stack/serialize" checkbox in systemsettings->Appearance->Colibri notifications).

I have no plan to add support for stacking notifications at the moment, but I am ready to review interesting patches :)

I think stacking would be nice... Something like this looks good

Thanks a lot for this! The KCM doesn't appear in System Settings for me though :(. I'm running Kubuntu 9.10 amd64. Which text file should I edit to configure Colibri manually? Thanks.

That's weird. Anyway, the config file is .kde/share/config/colibrirc

For now it looks like this:

[General]
Alignment=68

Where 68 is the OR of the various Qt::Alignment flags:

Qt::AlignLeft 1
Qt::AlignRight 2
Qt::AlignHCenter 4

Qt::AlignTop 32
Qt::AlignBottom 64
Qt::AlignVCenter 128

Awesome, thank you so much! Actually though, in the time between my question and your response, I actually got used to the default top-right configuration (as opposed to my bottom-right with Ayatana in KDE 4.3); heh, go figure :P.

I can confirm that the KCM does not appear into System Settings on Kubuntu 9.10 i386, but I can call it through `kcmshell4 colibri`.

I'll keep following your updates, Colibri rocks my desktop! ;)

I'm sorry, I spoke too soon!
I was expecting it to appear under "Appearance", but it was under "Desktop". So there's no problem with the KCM in my case! ;)

 double notifications

Score 50%

First of all I'm glad to have the ayatana notifications back now that I'm in kde 4.4. Unfortunately though it seems that some notifications are displayed twice.

For instance when Banshee changes songs it displays the title of the new song twice in a row.

Kinda weird

as the name already implies - IMO the kcm module should be placed into the notifications category. what do you think?

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
