Preventing Gnome daemon from starting at startup in Xfce

Postby archtop on Sun Mar 31, 2013 11:23 pm

I'm running Mint 13 Xfce and am having problems configuring the desktop notifications (the little informative bubbles that appear when I, for example, change the volume). I've installed xfce4-notifyd-config , which is a small GUI to customize e.g. notification appearance position and time.

However, it doesn't work. I've learned that if I kill the following daemon:

/usr/lib/notify-osd/notify-osd

and, in a terminal, manually start up:

/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/xfce4/notifyd/xfce4-notifyd


then I am able to customize the Xfce desktop notifications; the customizations disappear when I close the terminal window.

So my question is -- how can I prevent the first daeomon from starting when the system starts up, and how can I make the second daemon start up instead?

(BTW, notify-osd is a Gnome daemon -- why is it running on startup in Xfce?)

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Turns out the answer was simple: uninstall notify osd.
