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.

 Fix for thick shadows

 
 by sakirst on: Aug 5 2010
 
Score 50%

Here's a small suggestion to fix the "thick" shadows when using the blur effect in KDE 4.5. I had the same problem with the Smooth Tasks applet when I wrote a patch for it to support the blur effect. For the NotificationWidget class, override QWidget's default showEvent(), and in the function of course call QWidget::showEvent(), and then call Plasma::WindowEffects::overrideShadow(winId(), true);
It kills the KWin's shadows and uses only the shadows provided by the plasma theme.

Thanks for this suggestion. I just applied it and will probably release 0.2.1 shortly to include this fix.

No problem! I really like this style of notifications, and this was the only flaw I saw so far. Glad I could help. Thank you for your work!

@sakirst
Could you share your modification for smooth-tasks (blur support) or is it already available somewhere?

I have not supplied a proper patch to the author of smooth-tasks yet, I have been really busy. I will try to get it to him as soon as possible.

Perhaps you could share this patch in comments for smooth-tasks also, so that everyone (including myself) could apply this patch manually before it gets added by author ?:) I would really like to have fully functioning smooth-tasks tooltip in KDE 4.5 :P

I Love colibri notification!
It's very similar to notofiy-osd but more beatiful thanks to a lot of plasma themes ;)

Hi, thanks for your work on Colibri, it is really appreciated! Is the download provided here the only way to install it, or is there any chance to use a PPA to keep it always up-to-date? Many thanks!

I may set up a PPA for it later, but don't hold your breath on it :)

That's weird, Colibri does not directly use these libraries. I am afraid something is wrong with your system.

I use the package from AUR and it works great for me. Do you tried it?

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
