Hi i saw on your site that there is already an updated version for pacman 4.1 +
Can you please update the PKGBUILD or, upload a new package that works with the new pacman ? I miss kalu since i updated today ( yes im on testing ... )

Wonderful tool! Just what i was looking for. Works great with GNOME 3.6! Thanks for your work.

Hmmm... Nothing shows up in the news box under Cinnamon.

When the notification for unread news shows up, click the "Show News" button; Then from that window you can select which news to mark (by default they're all selected) and just click "Mark Read"

@jjacky, how do I clear the news? Thanks!

Well, the original icon is a 48x48 PNG so it can look better at that size, I meant to say it is supposed to be smaller (i.e. it's natural size when kalu "attaches" it to the notification is smaller, by design).

I just realized, though, that I forgot to say: you can change it. If you want a bigger icon on notification, change it on Preferences. You can even just use kalu's logo (/usr/share/pixmaps/kalu.png), when loading it from a file that way it'll be kept at its natural size, here 48x48. (Of course, you can also use any other logo of any size you want.)

Maybe if it were a larger scalable icon it wouldn't be as problematic? (SVG?) This could also help for panels that display icons of varying sizes.

Thanks for the quick reply.
Indeed, the notifications pile up, if I'm away from the system.
Anyway, I see this is all on KDE.
Thanks again for the great work and the ongoing support

- the icon does look ugly, and I think that's because it's not supposed to be that large; It should be the same as in the systray. Nothing's changed about this in kalu though, so I'd guess this comes from your notification daemon.

- I'm not sure what you mean by "added" -- yes, after each check if there are updates kalu triggers a new notification, that's indeed how it works, has been the case from day one.
What I would guess is, if you have changed/updated your notification daemon, maybe it didn't used to keep old/past notifications around, and now keeps them in a list or something. Is that what you mean by added?
Again, this would be something from your notification daemon, not kalu.

2 small issues with KDE 4.10.
- The update notification look a bit weird (icon seems to be of low quality).
- When an update is available, with each check, another notification is added.
In previous versions of KDE, only one notification was displayed.

Both issues are of low priority, of course.
