Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kopete-facebook

I can't disable the notifications about Facebook friends coming on-line
in Kopete. I try going to Settings -> Notifications -> Friend Gone On
Line and try to disable everything. Then I stop and restart Kopete. But
this message keep popping up.

The nature of Facebook is that many people have extremely long lists of
friends, many more than they would have AIM contacts, say, and also that
browsers and browser windows tend to get closed and reopened many more
times than a typical IM client. The result is of course that the
notifications are particularly frequent and obtrusive. Having the
notifications permanently disabled, if that were the only other option,
would be better than the present situation in which the Facebook
functionality is bordering on unusable.
