How to get Growl notifications working in Tweetdeck for Mac

image

Finally!

Been looking for a solution to this issue for some time now. Tweetdeck appears in the supported apps list in Growl preferences, but alerts do not work out of the box.

Hadn’t seen a fix for this anywhere until I came upon this tip from user Liz Heckenberg in a Growl Google Group (say that ten times fast) here.

Here’s how to do it:

1) In Tweetdeck, at the top of each column is a header with a toggle switch/slider icon on the right (See image above). Click that to expose a list of column-specific settings.

2) Under ‘Alerts,’ click the down arrow on the right to expand the field and then check the boxes for Sounds and Popups as desired.

Growl alerts should now work!

This had been one of my biggest hangups about using Tweetdeck full-time.

Very excited.

Thank you, Liz!

(This applies to Tweetdeck v3.8.4 and Growl v2.1.3 running on OS X Mavericks v10.9.5 as of October 1, 2014. I have not tested with other versions or combinations thereof.)

Our children someday.

From an interview with Glaser at DesignBoom:

‘I love NY more than ever’, why a a variation of the icon?
The only subtlety is the wound, which is located on the lower ‘west side’ of the heart. The shaded portion represented the very area in lower manhattan where the once proud world trade center twin towers stood until a pair of hijacked passenger jets slammed into them. Showing a wounded heart is important. To attain healing, the first thing one must do is to acknowledge that there’s pain. Unfortunately the department of commerce seemed tepid to adopt this creation. That’s why I sent the new logo to the ‘New York Daily News’, which lost no time reproducing it and using it to wrap the newspaper. Close to a million copies of the logo circulated around the city, turning up on windows, lampposts and subway walls.

Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love" tops riff poll

That riff makes me feel like I’ve been strapped to a conveyor belt on one of those industrial machine factory assembly lines, and the lick after "Wanna Whole Lotta Love" is when the buffing apparatus comes down and just rips the top layer of skin right off my body.

Fun list.

I have a Classic Riffs playlist of my own.

And of course the Brits had The Smiths in the Top 10.
