How to disable notification popups?

wwp
Hello there,


I've uninstalled xfce4-notifyd and notifications at desktop corners
look different, but they still show up. I couldn't find a way to
disable them from the settings or I'm blind.

Any hint?

(I want to disable them 'cause I'm getting a notification popup for
every sound that is played, huuu :-/)


Regards,

xfce4-volumed?

You can just disable xfce volume daemon autostart.

So you have another notifyd installed, maybe gnome ones. Deinstall it,
too, if you can. Some programs require a notifyd and, so on is always
isntalled by the package manager.

Please define what you mean by "notification for every sound that is
played".


Regards

Do you mean that if only a gnome notification system is *installed*
even if it's not running, it could interfere?

Yes, GNOME is installed and I used to use it before I switched to Xfce.
No 'notify(d)' process is running, and I don't know any gnome
notification program that could be running (no gnome-* program involved
in notifications or sound is running).

 
> Please define what you mean by "notification for every sound that is

That's a very good point: every time skype plays a sound (pulseaudio),
every time I run `aplay`. Sound using mplayer or audacious is not doing
that. Apart from this I don't have any desktop sound thru Xfce, I don't
know if that's normal or not, but it's not the topic here.

Good point, I killed xfce4-volumend and I don't get nasty notifications
every time pulseaudio plays a wav file.

I think I'll even uninstall it. It's useless if it makes noise for
nothing.

If using PulseAudio as sound daemon I would advice to install
xfce4-volumed-pulse (it's in Gentoo portage at
xfce-extra/xfce4-volumed-pulse) instead of xfce4-volumed which is based
on ALSA if I remember right. Therefore is will pop-up each time a
channel for ALSA is created in PulseAudio.

I use xfce4-volumed-pulse and it's quiet as long as I do not adjust
volume level ;)

Regards,
Stephan

The notifyd is triggered by dbus. As long one is available (i.e.
installed and anounced at dbus), it starts.

And what says the notification? Since this is your real problem (and
you don't have it in gnome), we should catch this on.

Right! Apparently the noisy notifications were due to xfce4-volumed,
which I disabled and I don't get them when pulse audio is playing a wav
anymore (as expected).

It says exactly what the notification says when you adjust volume level:
it indicates the volume level %. Does it help?

That sounds interesting, I'll give it a try, thanks!

In fact I formerly installed xfce4-volumed in order to get
notifications when I press the laptop's volume keys. Without this
plugin, I don't get these notifications (xfce4-notify doesn't seem to
act there because it's using DBUS only and I presume it's normal).

Yes, it does. You have a clash among alsa and pulse audio. Either remove
PA or install the xfce pulse packages provided by your distribution. The
official xfce packages doesn't support PA.

Check

/usr/share/dbus-1/services

This is a very useful feature of dbus which I'm very glad exists and
glad it is filesystem based especially with suid for system-services (as
otherwise it would require constant auditing and make ensuring that
only considered functions run, difficult).

This directory is basically listed in the man page when it should
really be explained as important and near the top of the man page.
Bad docs is a common theme from projects of it's roots unfortunately.

Very interesting, I didn't know that. I installed xfce4-volumed-pulse
(with a bit modifications to build on a CentOS6 because volumed-pulse
expects a more recent pulseaudio API) and it seems to work very well.

Thanks to you and Stephan for your help and advising me to use this
-pulse version!
