    Python doesn't really require you to specify data types or begin variable names with special characters, it just kindof figures it out on the fly by what you set to it. Yeah, mmText is the variable that contains what is shown. self.response is a dictionary (in Python speak), which contains the 'title' info you want to display.

    self.response['title'] is a string, hence mmText will be a string, but you can slice strings apart like you can with lists/arrays, so:

    Code:
    # To get the first twenty characters and add ' ...'
    mmText = self.response['title'][:20] + ' ...'
    
    # slightly more elaborate: put an ellipsis between the first and last ten chars
    mmText = '%s ... %s' % (self.response['title'][:10], self.response['title'][-10:])
    So, yeah, just throw an if statement in there to see if the string is over a certain length so you can cut it up however you want, else show it all.
    Any advice given is the direct result of my experience solving my problems on my system. I have no idea what I'm talking about. ~Bouge

    I am aware. Unforunately at the moment I don't have the time to fix it, although I expect I will sometime (but perhaps not until Christmas )

    Re: FBuntu: Facebook Notifier for Messaging Menu

    Not sure if this is still active or not, but tried everything and debug file shows
    "2013-02-03 09:32:40 notificationChecker.py:57 ERROR: Error 104 Requires valid signature"
    nothing shows in the notification and it's wonk. I am fairly new to Ubuntu and writing this code, I am stuck in something about a SSH id for launchpad, (not too sure why I need that) but still. Have tried this got it in and loaded, followed the read me and ... nothing. Is this another dead notifier for FB?

    Re: FBuntu: Facebook Notifier for Messaging Menu

    Thanks for the respond, ugh, ok well hopefully I'll find or stumble upon one that is actually working along with Google voice. Got the skype wrap around working perfectly in notifier, and the gmail notifier, be great to have all of them in one nice nifty spot since I refuse to run windows anymore after the last crash lost everything on my hd. Thanks for all the work you put in.

    Re: FBuntu: Facebook Notifier for Messaging Menu

    It may be dead, but works great on 12.04. Thank you for your hard work. This is just what I was looking for.

    BTW, the default settings have the notification taking about half of my screen (netbook). Changing this line made it just right:

    Code:
     mmText = self.response['title'][:15] + ' ...'
