Disable notification system in Ubuntu

I dont know about everyone else but for some reason I just found the notification system really annoying with my Ubuntu setup, after struggling with a few files and settings finally was able to get it all disabled.

Here is a quick how-to in case someone wants to disable/enable it….

For disabling use the following:

sudo mv /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.freedesktop.Notifications.service 
/usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.freedesktop.Notifications.service.disabled

To re-enable it:

sudo mv /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.freedesktop.Notifications.service.
disabled /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.freedesktop.Notifications.service

    Does this require a reboot? Or perhaps restarting some service?

    I tried it on my 9.10 system, and just a few minutes later, i got an annoying skype message that some XYZ was now online —- exactly the sort of message i’d like to get rid of forever. 🙂
