Notifications for Pidgin is a notification plugin for the Pidgin instant messenger that provides notifications through KDialog, when:
* a buddy signs on
* a buddy signs off
* a message is received (if the conversation window is not focused).
The purpose of this plugin is to offer a better integration of Pidgin and the KDE 4 desktop.
From the Downloads page, get the latest version of knotifications.pl and save it to ~/.purple/plugins (create the plugins directory if it does not exist), for example: /home/bob/.purple/plugins/knotifications.pl.
The Chromium browser might save the file with a wrong extension, knotifications.download. Make sure the file extension is correct, it must be pl: knotifications.pl.
You must then go to Pidgin->Tools->Plugins and enable KDE Notifications from the list.
Here are some key features of "Notifications for Pidgin":
