openbox + tint2 - turn off black pop-up notifications

Pesky black pop-up notifications are shown in top right hand corner of screen.

The one that appears when I toggle caps lock is shown in this image link
https://www.dropbox.com/s/vutjjza06mvmi … 5.png?dl=0

Black pop-up notifications occur 
- when I print,
- when I connect to a new wi-fi, and
- when I use my caps lock with package "indicator-keylock".

I can turn the wi-fi pop-up off by right clicking the wi-fi icon on the tint2 panel and selecting "turn off notifications", but I can't do this for printing or for the key-lock toggle indicator.

How can I turn off this top right screen pop-up for system wide applications?

Your dropbox link gives a 404

Re: openbox + tint2 - turn off black pop-up notifications

What happens if you use a different theme?

It is now nearly 5 years since Crunchbang ended, so I suspect that is bound to cause problems.

You could uninstall notifications to disable popups all the time. I'm not sure which version you have, but apt-cache search for libnotify (IIRC).

Thanks for your reply.

libnotify has many dependancies so I can't get rid of it.

IS there a system setting anywhere else to turn this off?

So what happens if you choose a different theme?

Is there a notification daemon started in your autostart? Perhaps if that is commented out it will turn off notifications.

Also you could search with

/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/openbox-xdg-autostart --list
## or
/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/openbox-xdg-autostart --list

Hi

I’ve been a real numpty.

I’ve realised just now this is a crunchbag forum.
I missed that and have no idea how.
All I saw when I posted was the “help & support” bit.

Also in the madness of these past few days here - I didn't realise I was working with an arch + openbox + tint2 install. Too much going on and everything falling apart here a bit just now.

Apologies.



May be best abandon this post now.



ps if you meant tint2 themes then I can't really change the theme as I tend to edit the tint2rc configuration text file to make changes. I've had an fairly extensive look at the file and don't, offhand, see anything there I can edit.

No, the  notification theme. In BL it is in Menu -> Preferences -> Notifications
