This article gives the steps to selectively or entirely disable popup notifications on Ubuntu Desktop 17 (Gnome xorg).

On Ubuntu 17.10 running the new default desktop Gnome in xorg mode, it's really easy... but Googling around you may find all types of CLI hacks that are unnecessary. So, I wrote this short article to help save some time and headaches.


  1. Open Settings
  2. Select Notifcations
  3. Toggle what you want on/off
