I'm using irssi on Gnome 3, but I do use KDE 4 sometimes. I like irssi very much but I miss any notification feature. I don't use irssi over ssh.

thanks a lot. I had to edit the to make the notifications transient (otherwise they fill up the notification area). Adding --hint=int:transient:1 did it. – barraponto Nov 29 '11 at 17:50 works great for me.

If you want it to notify all messages instead of just hilighted ones remove || !($dest->{level} & MSGLEVEL_HILIGHT) from the script.
