View Full Version : [ubuntu] help with basic programming

November 8th, 2010, 04:24 PM

I have very little knowledge in programming, scripting and everything (only 1 semester of Python two semesters ago in college) but I would still like to bring a small modification to the Indicator Applet on the top panel in Ubuntu.

I'm using Empathy to chat, and when a new message arrives, the indicator applet (I believe it to be the source) makes a pop-up appear on the top-right of the screen.

What I would like to do is to make it so that I can click on that pop-up to make the chat window show-up.

Can someone please guide me into how I can do this?

Imagine that this wouldn't be too difficult. The code at least. It might be lots of code though coz you'll need to decide between the different apps that invoke the indicator.

You'll need to look up the source for the indicator applet. For the life of me I can't remember what its called atm...

the source for indicator-messages is probably what you want.
