    Re: use Skype with Jaunty notifcations (notify-osd)

    Hi,

    I'm new to Ubuntu 10.10, the last version I've used was the 6.06, after that I've been using the OpenSuSE, but now I've switched back to Ubuntu.

    I wasn't able to make it work here.
    I've made the following:

    1) Created the OpenPGP and the SSH keys at launchpad
    2) Ran "bzr branch lp:skype-notify" on terminal
    3) Put the code on skype

    Didn't worked, so...

    4) Installed the package libnotify-bin

    I re-check that the packages python-indicate and python-wnck were installed, but still not working.

    Also, I have tried the script created by mbonera, but it didn't worked too.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Luiz

    you need to apt-get install python-skype python-wnck python-indicate to be installed

    maybe you need python-gnome-desktop or python-gnome2-desktop, tray searching on google for exact name in apt repos and install it

    Thank you, markoer.

    The packages python-skype, python-wnck, python-indicate are installed. I'll check the others tonight when I come home.

    Hi,

    I'm also running Maverick and tried skype-notify. It works great, thanks for it!

    I had a look at the way how the dbus service is started. Dbus now offers a way to autostart services:
    Code:
    $ cat /usr/share/dbus-1/services/skype-notify.service 
    [D-BUS Service]
    Name=org.skypenotify.Service
    Exec=/path/to/skype-dbus-service.py
    This works somehow, but only for the second notification as skype-notify.py doesn't wait until the service is started properly. I'm not that experienced with dbus, so maybe someone knows a way to fix it.
    Perhaps, the connection to the dbus service could be established earlier so that it's available as soon as the first notification shall be sent.

    Please find attached a patch to update the German version to the latest original version. I also added a German skype-dbus-service.DE_de.py although it just a minor change.

    Best regards,
    Whoopie

    For me (Lucid Lynx) it's working very well. But I had to install libnotify-bin first.

    Thank you.
    Thank also to you for your advice about libnotify-bin.

    It works

    @Whoopie

    Can you tell me please how to activate the changes in your patch.
    I just took a look at the patch file and found both .py files, but its seems to be they are a kind of incomplete and wrong formated.

    Please tell me what I'm doing wrong.

    Hello mates,
    for make it works I modify the this line

    Code:
    python /home/m7p/.skype-notify/skype-notify.py -e"%type" -n"%sname" -f"%fname" -p"%fpath" -m"%smessage" -s%fsize -u%sskype
    after that I specify the full path it works!
