How can I get passive (non-intrusive) progress bar?

A combination of kdialog --passivepopup and kdialog --progressbar. For example, when copying files with dolphin such a progress bar will be used. I want the same for my own scripts.

It's one KDE, but I would also install any other notification system.

Possibly more suitable for stackoverflow. Which language are you using? –  billc.cn Oct 19 '12 at 22:34
Feel free to move. I am using Bash. –  James Mitch Oct 23 '12 at 15:00
