Notifications with Irssi in Screen

One of the biggest problems about running irssi in a terminal in screen is that there aren’t any notifications by default if you are mentioned, or if there is activity in a channel. By running these commands, you will be able to get these notifications. They can be tailored based on the notifications that you want.

  1. Could you maybe show your .screenrc file, do you need any special settings?

    How does the beeping work. Does it constantly beep or flash until you check the screen (this is what I’m looking for)?
