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.

  • weechat has a plugin for this as well. – Goddard Jan 14 '16 at 1:01

There seems to be a couple kicking about:

https://github.com/stickster/irssi-libnotify (previously at http://code.google.com/p/irssi-libnotify/)



They're just Perl scripts you drop into ~/.irssi/scripts so you could tweak them to suit you.

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

http://code.google.com/p/irssi-libnotify/ 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.
