Cinnamon notifications Pidgin

Postby obscureangelPT » Thu Nov 15, 2012 10:11 pm

Hello guys
Well i am back to you with linux mint 14, and i am very happy with it.
Its pretty, clean and very fast.

So i do have a dumb question.
I enter in pidgin and many friends login and logout, naturally.
The problem is that everytime one friend login, add 1 to notifier menu on cinnamon taskbar.
So after 15minutes, i have about 10 notification to read which are logins and logouts from pidgin.

So i guess that is pretty useless, and i am asking if there is a way to turn off the pidgin notifications of login or logout, or even better if there is a way of turning off the notifications of pidgin going to taskbar notifications menu.

Thanks a lot guys, you are great

try the setting of pidgin or better empathy together with gnome-shell.

[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

You can turn off notifications in Pidgin completely in Extra > Plugins, then turn off "Pop-ups of Libnotify" or something like that (I'm not sure what it is in English, I'm using Mint in Dutch).

@ remoulder: I don't think this is limited to 14RC.

I solved.
I turned off the notification system in the taskbar, so there is no counting numbers anymore.
I prefer that way.
OSD its still appearing, that is what i want!

Anyway i like the way the cinnamon is evolving, even more things are costumizable and its very optimized :D

You don't need to disable pidgin's or cinnamon's notifcations completely. Simply go to tools > plugins > libnotify popups > configure and uncheck the boxes for user signs on and user signs off. In my pidgin the only box I have checked is new message, so pidgin only gives notifications when I get an im.
