Using IRSSI with Awesome
You can have the awesome window manager identify if somebody sent you a message on IRC using the urgency settings, by doing the following:
/set bell_beeps ON /set beep_msg_level MSGS NOTICES INVITES DCC DCCMSGS HILIGHT
Permanent irssi configuration:
# settings # fe-common/core bell_beeps = "yes"; beep_msg_level = "MSGS NOTICES INVITES DCC DCCMSGS HILIGHT";
In .Xdefaults for terminal emulators:
! rxvt-unicode URxvt.urgentOnBell: true ! xterm XTerm*bellIsUrgent: true
In GNU screen: Make sure audible bell is enabled (C-a C-g to check). Permanent setting for .screenrc:
vbell off # no visual bell
The following irssi script uses libnotify (via the `notify-send` command) to alert user of highlighted messages. On Debian, and Ubuntu you need to install the `libnotify-bin` package.
Here's my setup for anyone interested.
$ cd ~/.irssi/scripts/autorun $ wget http://anti.teamidiot.de/static/nei/*/Code/Irssi/adv_windowlist.pl
$ /statusbar window disable $ /save
Install irssi-scripts, and do:
$ cd .irssi/scripts/autorun/ # colourised nicknames $ ln -s /usr/share/irssi/scripts/nickcolor.pl . # mouse scrollwheel support $ ln -s /usr/share/irssi/scripts/mouse.pl .
Add this to .irssi config to ignore nickserv window:
autosendcmd = "/msg nickserv identify blaablaa; /window goto nickserv; /wc";
To run irssi, I do:
$ screen -mdS i irssi
Then whenever I wish to check irc, I can run screen -r and type C-a d to detach from the session. Closing the terminal without exiting is fine. screen is a handy utility where you can make seperate sessions to log into, each with their own windows. So here we make 1 session called irssi, with 1 window that has irssi loaded.
Show running sessions with screen -ls
