I wanna receive the default desktop notifications using IRC Chat room in Empathy. Is there any plugin to do that?

This is not a duplication @user68186 I wanna receive the notifications. I have already installed the irc chat. I just need the notifications on the desktop, just like a regular chat. –  André Marinho May 9 '14 at 18:29
In theory, empathy should do just as you ask. In my experience, however, desktop integration is sometimes buggy / spotty. Because of this I do not use empathy, I hope someone with more experience has a better answer. From the official documentation "Empathy is currently a pretty poor IRC client. It might be better to install xchat-gnome." help.ubuntu.com/community/Empathy –  bodhi.zazen May 9 '14 at 18:45
