Ubuntu: How do I disable pop-up notifications in Xubuntu?



Question:

How can i disable ALL pop-up notification on Xubuntu 11.10

I have tried: sudo apt-get remove notify-osd

Which resulted in

Reading package lists... Done  Building dependency tree         Reading state information... Done  Package notify-osd is not installed, so not removed  0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.  


Solution:1

Obviously removing notify-osd won't work because Xubuntu doesn't use it, it uses xfce4-notifyd.

So if you want to remove them, remove that package.

 sudo apt-get remove xfce4-notifyd  

If you only want to disable them use this:

 sudo mv /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.xfce.xfce4-notifyd.Notifications.service /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.xfce.xfce4-notifyd.Notifications.service.disabled  

To reverse that:

 sudo mv /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.xfce.xfce4-notifyd.Notifications.service.disabled /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.xfce.xfce4-notifyd.Notifications.service  

Source.


Solution:2

Try this:

sudo mv /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.xfce.xfce4-notifyd.Notifications.service /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.xfce.xfce4-notifyd.Notifications.service.disabled  


Solution:3

you can also run this command and will be able to edit what you want to be shown or blocked in notifications. I had to do this for SMB4K for drive mounts as it was driving me nuts lol.

xfce4-notifyd-config
