Remove Notification Daemon


I’ve just installed lubuntu-22.04.3-desktop and I’m trying to get rid of the notifications that pop up on the top right. Each time I resize the screen they pop up.

I’ve tried setting the duration to 0 but it defaults back to 11 seconds on save.

I’ve tried the command below in Qt and while they complete without error, the notifications continue after a reboot.

sudo apt-get remove notification-daemon
sudo apt-get remove mate-notification-daemon

Any idea how to stop the notifications?

And also, the notification that warns you you’re going to loose all your unsaved work each time I try and shut down, even though there is no unsaved work…


right click your bar, manage widgets, remove status notifier.

Disable the “Notification Daemon” in the LXQt session settings (Chapter 3.2.13 Session Settings — Lubuntu Manual 23.10 documentation)

I guess it is not easy to simply remove lxqt-notificationd:

LANG=C apt purge -s lxqt-notificationd
NOTE: This is only a simulation!
      apt needs root privileges for real execution.
      Keep also in mind that locking is deactivated,
      so don't depend on the relevance to the real current situation!
