KDE Popper

Popper is a small, neat solution to messaging between Linux and Windows-based machines. It sits quietly in the system tray and pops up a message should one be received from a computer on the network. All 32-bit Windows variants come with some sort of messaging program compatible with these kind of messages, and there are several available for Linux. Samba provides the neccessary magic of sending and receiving.

        •  25 Feb 2002 11:48

          Release Notes: This release changes the received message mechanism to use file modification times instead of signals so that the executable no longer needs to be suid. It now allows for systems that don't have an /etc/HOSTNAME or one that has dubious contents, and the script has been introduced so it will now receive messages.
