Is there a way to suppress pop-up notifications for SMS

Or even all pop-up notifications in general?


I did post this when the board was new. Not to necrobump, but this may have never gotten seen then and it’s a pressing need for me.

I don’t believe there are any settings that let you do this. You could however patch the NotificationsPreview.qml file found in /usr/share/lipstick-jolla-home-qt5/notifications/ folder.

At the top of the file you should find the line:
property bool showNotification: notification != null && (notification.previewBody || notification.previewSummary)

Comment out that line and add this instead:
property bool showNotification: false

That will stop all pop up notifications. This comes with the usual warnings about backing up, being careful when changing system files and reversing the patch before updating.

Do you just use the terminal to edit or do you have a preferred editor?

with the notification preview patch you can reduce 1


Thanks, I’ll try this first.
