I always keep an irssi session open inside a screen session on my server via ssh. I always thought that notifications aren't possible for such a setup. But they are.
- In your irssi session, issue the following commands:
/set beep_msg_level NOTICE MSGS HILIGHT /set bell_beeps OFF
You can save this configuration permanently by issueing /save.
- In your ~/.screenrc, add the following lines:
vbell off bell_msg 'Bell in window %n^G'
3. Tell your terminal to set the URGENT flag when beeping. Add one of the following lines to your .Xresources:
# For UXterm users: UXTerm*bellIsUrgent: true # For (u)rxvt users: Rxvt.urgentOnBell: true
