I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I recently disabled (accidentally pressed "don't show again" button) some network notification on GNOME Shell. There are (as I can remember):
Now both on Unity and GNOME Shell, those notifications didn't showed up, and it felt just wrong.
What can I do to re-enable those disabled notifications? Thanks.
Run these commands:
gsettings set org.gnome.nm-applet disable-disconnected-notifications "false"
gsettings set org.gnome.nm-applet disable-connected-notifications "false"
Or open dconf-editor and scroll down to org ▸ gnome ▸ nm-applet and uncheck disable-connected-notifications and disable-disconnected-notifications settings there.
gconf-editor lets you edit the network manager notifications.
Scroll to / ▸ apps ▸ nm-applet and uncheck disable-connected-notifications settings there.
/ ▸ apps ▸ nm-applet
Or the command line method:
gconftool -s /apps/nm-applet/disable-disconnected-notifications --type=bool false
gconftool -s /apps/nm-applet/disable-connected-notifications --type=bool false
GNOME is transitioning to dconf instead, edit with dconf-editor from apt package dconf-tools. Settings for nm-applet are at /org/gnome/nm-applet.
I couldn't find where I can change Gnome Shell notification settings. I clicked the button that appears with "Don't Show Again" (or something like that) label on a notification, and now when that notification appears, it never disappears until I click on that.
Where is the configuration window of Gnome Shell notifications?
There is no way to easily configure gnome-shell notifications as of yet. You can disable them or configure them to time out.
dconf-editor allows you to configure some settings
sudo apt-get install dconf-editor
You can also modify notify-send so the messages are transient.
# Move the current script to a backup location
sudo mv /usr/bin/notify-send /usr/bin/notify-send.bak
Now, use gedit for a new wrapper script
gksu gedit /usr/bin/notify-send
copy-paste this into that file
/usr/bin/notify-send --hint int:transient:1 "$@"
Save the script , exit gedit, and make it executable
sudo chmod a+x /usr/bin/notify-send
