Pidgin On-screen Display Python Script Supports Linux (and probably Mac) only

Recommended Posts

Been messing around with D-Bus for Pidgin in Python and thought it would be interesting to have an OSD instead of a toaster pop-up script for notification of new messages. In turn, i wrote a script that brings that thought into reality. You can manually adjust the width and height of the OSD. Currently the script shows the display centered near the bottom only. You can also set how long you want it to last and the amount of opacity. Since i am unsure how to make Pidgin handle it as a plug-in, the script loads outside of Pidgin, with its own system tray icon. The modules for Python required for the script are the Qt4 Python module and the D-Bus Python module.
