Version: 2.7 (using KDE 4.7.0)
Bell notifications are really necessary e.g. to be notified when somebody write to you in a chat software.
There are 2 options for that in Konsole 2.7:
- Bell in Visible Session
- Bell in Non-Visible Session
To try them, I just do a echo -e "\a"
Bell in Visible session works, but all the time, even when the session is not visible, this can be annoying when you are chatting (you can have a bell each time somebody is writing to you).
Bell in Non-Visible Session doesn't work at all, neither "Play a sound", "Show a message in a popup" or whatever). To try it, I use a sleep 5; echo -e "\a" then I change konsole tab, or go to an other app during the delay.
I'm using Kubuntu 11.04.
There are a few (old) bugs similar to this one, but it seems that the notifications menu where not present at the time, so I added this entry:
I would be nice to fix this.
Steps to Reproduce:
- Tick one of "Bell in Non-Visible Session" notification
- use this: sleep 10; echo -e "\a"
- during the 10s delay, change tab or windows
the notification should occur
