Ubuntu disable popup notifications


To disable all popup notifications that comes at the top right corner use following procedure:

First rename the file /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.freedesktop.Notifications.service file.

$ sudo mv /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.freedesktop.Notifications.service /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.freedesktop.Notifications.service.disabled

Now kill notify-osd with following command:

$ killall notify-osd

This way is worked for me in Ubuntu 12.04 OS.
If you don’t run “killall notify-osd” it wont effect right away.

To git rid of notification right away you need to run “killall notify-osd” or reboot machine after renaming org.freedesktop.Notifications.service file.
