BlueSharkHow can I turn off these annoying sound notifications? http://i.imgur.com/1aOpv1o.png08:57
cfhowlettBlueShark silence sound?08:58
BlueSharkFigured it out. Settings Manager -> Session and Startup -> Application Autostart -> Xfce Volume Daemon09:10
BlueSharkcfhowlett: How do you do that?09:10
cfhowlettBlueShark click on the speaker, reduce sound to 009:10
BlueSharkcfhowlett: I don't want to mute sounds. I just want to turn off the notification popups.09:11
cfhowlettBlueShark click on the speaker, sound settings > system sounds 009:11
cfhowlettBlueShark popups?  so NOT the audio sounds?09:11
cfhowlettBlueShark settings > notifications > disappear after 0 seconds should kill them09:12
BlueSharkSee the screenshot I posted above: http://i.imgur.com/1aOpv1o.png — Whenever a sound plays in the system, this little tabbed pane appears at the right-hand side corner of the screen (which is what I called a "popup" above). I was asking how to disable/turn them off.09:13
BlueSharkcfhowlett: I can't find a Notifications icon in Settings Manager.09:15

cfhowlettBlueShark waiting for imagebin to load - great firewall of china is slow today09:17
deshipuBlueShark: I don't think there is an easy way to disable that, you might want to ask at #xfce09:17
skribblezatchaBlueShark: those are called notifications you can turn those off through system settings.09:17
BlueSharkskribblezatcha: Could you explain how?09:17
skribblezatchado you know where your system settings are BlueShark?09:18
BlueSharkdeshipu: I disabled them by removing Xfce Sound Daemon from the Autostart applications list and it seems to have worked.09:18
deshipuBlueShark: that also disables your media keys09:18
BlueSharkdeshipu: OK, I'll ask around in #xfce.09:18
cfhowlettBlueShark sound settings daemon has nothing to do with nofications09:19
deshipucfhowlett: it has, as it generates them09:19
cfhowlettBlueShark but #xfce are the experts09:19
skribblezatchaBlueShark: go to system settings, notifications, and you will see how to disable that.09:19
deshipucfhowlett: as far as I understand, he only wants to disable a specific class of the notifications09:19
deshipuskribblezatcha: there is no option to disable them there09:20
deshipuskribblezatcha: please check before you give advice09:20
skribblezatchahmmm, there used to be deshipu. sorry.09:21
BlueSharkcfhowlett: sorry for the ping, but what screenshot were you going to take?09:25
cfhowlettBlueShark I was going to show you the settings > notifications tab09:25
skribblezatchaits in there cfhowlett?09:26
cfhowlettskribblezatcha 12.04 yes09:26
skribblezatchathats what i thought cfhowlett. thanks.09:26
deshipuskribblezatcha: sorry, apparently my version is too old to have it09:26
skribblezatchaits ok deshipu. np. :)09:27
BlueSharkcfhowlett: Oh, I think I know what you're talking about.09:27
BlueSharkThis? http://i.imgur.com/Jmyn31t.png09:28
BlueSharkI thought that might be displaying the notifications and removed the 'xfce4-notifyd' package entirely.09:29
deshipuit does09:30
deshipubut you do need some of those notifications09:31
BlueSharkWell, I removed them and logged out/in and the notifications were still there.09:33
skribblezatchathats because i dont think that is the right spot BlueShark.09:33
xubuntu873hello, is there anyone here?10:11
cfhowlettxubuntu873 ask your questions.10:11
xubuntu873ah, there is someone10:11
xubuntu873well I'm having a small problem with skype icon in the system tray10:12
xubuntu873it's big, it won't resize with the panel10:12
xubuntu873is this a known issue?10:12
brainwashxubuntu873: it is known that some tray icons are not resized properly10:14
xubuntu873I remember having this same problem with clementine and hplip if I remember correctly10:16
xubuntu873but skype worked before, now with xubuntu 14.04 skype isn't working10:16
xubuntu873clementine works ok10:16
brainwashnot working at all?10:17
xubuntu873other than having thick panels, there's no solution for this so far?10:17
xubuntu873no, skype works fine, this is a non-issue basically10:17
xubuntu873it's just annoying10:17
brainwashbug 131353110:18
ubottubug 1313531 in xfce4-indicator-plugin (Ubuntu) "Huge Wallch icon in Xubuntu 14.04" [Undecided,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/131353110:18
xubuntu873thanks, I'll post there also10:19
brainwashok, thanks :)10:20
AerganSkype icon is resizing for me ok in XFCE4 16-48px10:23
AerganTried updating the icon cache for your icon theme?10:24
xubuntu873no, how do I do that?10:24
xubuntu873oh, I think I know10:25
AerganI use: for D in /usr/share/icons/*; do sudo gtk-update-icon-cache $D; done10:25
brainwashAergan: the normal xfce4 session without indicator area (panel)?10:25
AerganAh no sorry, mine's coming in via Indicator plugin on the panel10:26
brainwashwe are talking about the indicator plugin10:26
brainwashI thought that you were referring to the normal notification area which works fine :)10:27
AerganMine's coming in via Indicators > Application Indicators within the Indicators plugin on xfce4-panel10:28
xubuntu873ok, I tried updating the icon cache, but it's still the same10:29
AerganIt doesn't respect any icon style changes but it does re-size correctly on mine currently10:29
xubuntu873so wait I can use a different indicator for system tray?10:30
brainwashif you remove the indicator area, apps will fall back to the notification area10:30
xubuntu873oh I see, there's two of them10:31
brainwashbut all the (unity) indicators will disappear also10:31
brainwashlike the mail indicator etc10:31
xubuntu873I see that network is also gone10:32
xubuntu873and without the indicator, I don't see skype icon at all10:32
brainwasheven after a restart of the panel?10:32
brainwashxfce4-panel -r10:32
brainwashor just relog10:32
xubuntu873no, not even after restarting the panel10:33
brainwashthat's odd10:33
xubuntu873clementine and dropbox icons are there10:33
xubuntu873I lost skype, network, volume and yes the message thingy10:33
brainwashwell, removing the indicator area is not an optimal solution anyway10:33
xubuntu873which I don't really need10:33
brainwashmaybe you can resize the skype icon and get it working10:34
brainwashicon file10:34
brainwashother than that, you'll have to wait until it's fixed officially10:35
xubuntu873I read somewhere that skype icon can be accesse10:35
xubuntu873can't be accessed10:35
brainwashsadly I have no clue :(10:36
gry<xubuntu873> and without the indicator, I don't see skype icon at all10:36
gryuninstall that plugin, it'll go to the old plugin then10:36
xubuntu873it's not that big of a deal, I just thought that there might be some kind of ninja fix that I'm not not aware of10:36
grythere is, you can get it working in minutes10:37
xubuntu873so I just remove the package?10:37
gryyes, granted you have the notification area active10:37
gryyou might need to log off and log on, or restart skype, for it to work10:38
xubuntu873xfce4-indicator-plugin, that's the name of the package?10:39
gryyes, but you need to check that you have notification area active, first10:41
gryactually I see you mentioned it earlier that you do; go ahead then, yes it is the correct name10:42
grythe weird thing is that the skype icon shows up correctly for me in either of these two plugins, so if it doesn't, you might need to reinstall skype or give me a kick so I check some versions of my things and compare to yours10:43
AerganI've been messing around with mine and I can't seem to break the resizing - it's always worked for me since installing it on Xubuntu 14.04 so far10:45
AerganI did do a sudo apt-get dist-upgrade before installing any applications when I first installed10:45
gryhow high is your panel?10:46
gryoh, sorry, you said it works for you. I misread10:46
AerganI have mine at the bottom, version 4.11.010:46
AerganSkype vertsion
xubuntu873I removed the package with the notification area added, restarted the panel and skype, but skype icon isn't showing10:48
xubuntu873notification area active10:48
grytry to log off and log in10:48
xubuntu873ok, I'll be back in a sec10:48

I fixed the resolution, etc. using the xubuntu settings (only when I'm logged in), but during the bootup/login screen, the resolution is wrong or the view is shifted.
