Amule has no build-in support for Growl Notifications. Fortunately, the good people at Growl has provided a command-line tool to post Growl notifications that we can use in Amule’s Events. Here’s how to set it up:

PART A. INSTALL GROWLNOTIFY, THE COMMAND-LINE TOOL

  1. Download the latest Growl, and mount the dmg. Look for the “growlnotify” folder, which is inside the “Extras” folder.
  2. Launch your Terminal.app (it’s in the /Applications/Utilities/ folder.)
  3. Type “cd ” (without quotes and include a space character after cd) but do not hit the Return key.
  4. Drag and drop the mentioned “growlnotify” folder into your Terminal.app. Your Terminal command should then look like this.
  5. Hit Return.
  6. Drag and drop “install.sh” from the “growlnotify” folder into your Terminal. Your Terminal command should look like this. Hit Return to start installation. Enter your admin password when prompted.
  7. Done.
  8.  

    You can verify proper installation by issuing the terminal command “growlnotify -h”. If you see a Help screen, installation is perfect.
