PlasmaNotify Firefox addon

Description:

Show Firefox notifications as KDE4 Plasma notifications.

Since KDE4 uses Plasma notifications, the common Firefox notifications did not match the look and feel. This addon replaces the usual firefox notifications with top-notch Plasma notifications which do integrate quite nicely into KDE4.

Since you're using Arch Linux, why not use firefox-kde-opensuse from the AUR, which also uses KDE to show its notifications.

This addon looks great but it seems to have not yet been updated on addons.mozilla.org.

Just reporting in case this is not only a delay in Mozilla addons processing.

Firefox 3.6 has libnotify support, so download dialogs should now fit in with the rest of Plasma as long as libnotify is installed and browser.download.manager.showAlertOnComplete is true.

Forgot to add, in FF 3.6 the Firefox icon is also used in notifications instead of the kdialog icon, and recent notifications will be grouped under Firefox instead of kdialog in the system tray.

Thanks! That worked indeed. Only problem I can see is that long filenames tend to "leak out" of the notification-bubble, but not a big deal since the bubble disappears after a little while anyway.

Maybe I'm missing something but the download link doesn't work. Or rather: it re-directs me to the addons mozilla site as it should, but it's still version 0.3.0 there and not 0.3.1 (and I'd really like it to work with FF 3.6).

Sorry, the addon update was not yet approved by the Mozilla team, it is still under review. It will appear on the same URL that now redirects to version 0.3.0.

Thanks for this great extension!
I've found a bug in it. If i'm downloading any file with russian name (for example, I'm downloading this page as "тест.html"), this notifier shows name with incorrect charset (for this case, "B5AB.html" instead of "тест.html"; I think it is unicode charset)

$ echo "тест" | iconv -f UTF-8 -t UNICODE
��B5AB

P.S sorry for my bad english

After Firefox 3.0.13 & KDE 4.3.0 Update, PlasmaNotify dont work anymore. All I get after a download, is a GTK-Notifikation in the middle of the screen.

Are you planning any updates for this problem?

I have to ask, is it possible to kill Firefox's popup download window completely and just have it run through the new notification system in 4.3? That would be one huge step forward...

I'm currently working on exactly this feature for which I have ported PlasmaNotify from bash script to java (The bash script method of accessing dbus is somehow limited).

I also try to catch all types of Firefox notifications, not only finished downloads.

I have just noticed that this add-on doesn't work when an add-on update notification appears. It would be nice to have covered all kind of notifications from Firefox (and Thunderbird?).

Thank you for this excellent extension.

It would be very cool if the download process itself will be displayed in the notification area too.

Is this possible?

This will be possible as soon as I switched to DBUS for communication with the VisualNotification system. ATM, I use kdialog which is rather limited.

But I plan to switch the communication method in one of the next releases.

When I download a file, the notification bar appears two times. kde 4.2.4, qt 4.5.2, opensuse 11.1, firefox 3.0.10.

Sometimes PlasmaNotify appears even 3 times at once:

PS.:
Polish translation ready:


http://rapidshare.com/files/244192479/pl_PL.tar.bz2.html

One more thing. Right now, it's :

downloads.successfullyDownloaded = został pobrany.

And "został pobrany" is only one of possible forms in Polish, and whether it would be gramatically correct or not, depends on the name of the downloaded file. When translating, mostly the "masculine form" is used, even though, as I previously described, it might look strange when the file name will have "feminine form" (not know if it's the correct description, something like that doesn't exist in English).

What I mean, is that a neater way to workaround this issue is to use "Plik", then %1 variable for file name, then "został pobrany". "Plik" means "File", which always has the same form (masculine), so the problem is solved that way. So I hope that in future, you can make the file name a variable and I'll be able to write e.g.

"Plik %1 został pobrany"

Cheers!
