How to get new email alerts in notification center?

Postby clevere1 » Sat Jan 05, 2013 1:56 am

With 1.5.4, Adium is suppose to support notification center. But for the life of me I can't figure out how to get it to put alerts
when new email arrives into notification center...

Am I missing something? I'm using Growl 1.2.2 and even installed Bark ... help?

It's MSN and Yahoo!

Adium alerts me just fine (with a Window behind all other windows) but I was hoping to get the alerts in 10.8's notification center.
Sadly, I can't get ANY notifications from Adium in notification center ... I even install Bark...

Are you using Growl for anything else other than Adium?

Adium does support Notification Center. However, once you have Growl.app installed you need to set it to use Notification Center and this requires version 2.0 or later of Growl.app.

I don't know whether Bark works with Growl version 1.2.2 or which version is required. Does Bark work with other apps than Adium for you?

Edit:
Apparently, the current version of Bark (1.1) requires Growl 2.0 to work. Bark's download page links an older version of Bark "for old Growl". Which version are you working with?

Hmm ...

From what I was reading, Adium 1.5.4 should support Notification Center.

I'm using the "Bark for Older growl".

Maybe I'll just go and download the newer growl...

Doh! Sorry about that. I could have sworn it said that Adium didn't support Notification center... Sorry.

I have Handbrake and Skype as well, but I don't use them as much as I do Adium. So it wouldn't be any skin off my back to uninstall growl if that would
help Adium push things to notification center.

Uninstalling Growl would probably make the notifications show up in Notification Centre, yeah. I'm a Growl fan so I won't recommend doing that. B-) When I updated from Mac OS X 10.6 to 10.8, I had to update Growl as well to make it work.

It seems odd Bark isn't working although you have the right version.

Ah, you were right on.

As soon as I uninstalled the old version of Growl, Adium started pushing notifications to notification center.

Thanks for your help!

I also updated to Growl 2.0.1. :)
