I tried several solutions to disable completely the notification center in Yosemite. For example, see https://apple.stackexchange.com/a/57477/104881 or https://apple.stackexchange.com/a/139171/104881.
These solutions disable the notification panel, but, in Yosemite, the notification icon of the menu bar is still there.
How can I remove the menu bar icon ?
I know the bartender software can do that but I am looking for a solution which does not require addind another app.
- I have already tried to remove NotificationCenter.app in /System/Library/CoreServices.
I also tried the following command:
launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchAgents/com.apple.notificationcenterui.plist; killall NotificationCenter
These two techniques remove the notifications but do not remove the icon.
