Manage notification settings in KDE 4

Filed under
KDE

One of the many things the KDE developers did right in 4.0 is the notification system. By far, this system is the cleanest and most flexible of nearly every desktop I have used. But most users don’t realize just how flexible this system is simply because they never bother to look into the configuration options available. It’s time that oversight is corrected.

With the Notification Settings, it is possible to configure many settings, including:

Application notifications
System notifications
Application crashes
Update notifications
Sound player
Event source

As with most all configuration options in KDE, the notification settings are found by opening the System Settings.
