After some unsuccessful googling, followed by loads and loads of digging and grepping through binary files, I stumbled upon a key in a .plist which, when written, appeared to make the system temporarily forget it had any updates to bother me with. Running:
defaults write com.apple.systempreferences AttentionPrefBundleIDs 0
fixed my issue for now (...
Here is what worked for me to get rid of the red notification ballon and still have access to System Preferences from the dock.
Replace the Systems Preferences icon on the dock with its Alias:
Remove System Preferences icon from dock (either drag icon off dock or right-click on it and choose "Options" and then "Remove from Dock").
In a Finder window ...
Block notifications from the app in "System Preferences" -> "Notifications". I'm not sure that it stops the app from from fetching news but it should block all notifications from it; including those that switch themselves back on for whatever reason.
After hours on the phone with Apple's techs, the answer is simply that there currently isn't a way to silence notifications. They have various workarounds, like uninstalling any apps that might have updates or silencing all notifications, but all of them have undesirable side effects, unfortunately.
The bluetooth receiver was also paired with my phone at the same time as the mac.
I've unpaired the phone and it stops the ducking.
I figured this out when a call came in and the ring tone played full blast and started trying to figure out how to prevent that from ever happening again.
There is no single settings/toggle that will let you turn off/on all notifications on your iPhone. The way notification are implemented in iOS, you are limited to configure them on a per app basis only.
A couple potential solutions are:
Turn on Do Not Disturb. This will have a side effect of suppressing any regular phone calls.
Make sure to set Allow ...
It depends on the service that sent the notification in the first place. The service (i.e. the backend system that supports an app such as Facebook or any other app) sends their notifications to Apple's push notification service over a HTTP/2-based API. In that API it sets a parameter known as "apns-expiration", which determines how long time Apple's push ...
I expect you are aware of all the interfaces presented, here:
Such as it is, I can appreciate that it can be cumbersome to go through each app one-by-one to uncheck that box (and there may be an unknown on whether every every app will even conform to the spec).
However, at the present time, Apple has ...
You can do this by disabling the Bezel UI, here are instructions on how to do so from an answer from another question related to that:
To turn off bezels for this user until next login: launchctl unload -F /System/Library/LaunchAgents/com.apple.BezelUI.plist To
undo, change unload to load, or just log out and back in.
For macOS 10.12 Sierra: ...
I know this was originally for Yosemite, and I'm not sure the answer there, but given the question is 3 years old, and I just found it while looking for the same thing with Mojave, I thought I'd mention the answer I found.
on the very right of the menu bar, click on the 3 lines, this brings up a window with Today / Notifications tabs. If you select the ...
(Since the accepted answer for this question is outdated and the actual answer is buried as a comment, I’m providing a better answer for all future people with this question, in hopes that it will become more visible.)
The default behavior for the Do Not Disturb feature is stopping notifications while the screen is locked, so that your iPad/iPhone won’t ...
If I understand you correctly, you can access the output of your scripts. Then you can do something like this:
# Replace the echo with your script
echo "space cats" | grep "space cats"
if [[ "$?" -eq "0" ]]; then
osascript -e 'display notification "Attention!" with title "Notification" subtitle "I found space cats" sound name "Submarine"'
I just tried with one of my friends' email. They receive the mail with buttons like accept, decline etc., and the info of the event of course. The said buttons have URL like: https://www.icloud.com/calendar/eventreply_full/en-gb/<some Key>&cc=IN#reply=accept It was sent from firstname.lastname@example.org but with my name in the Sender.
.ics of the ...
I am running the Terminal version 2.9.1 and macOS Mojave 10.14.3 and I could just do this in the preference setting of the Terminal App:
Terminal > Preferences > Profiles tab > Advanced tab > Uncheck everything under the Bell section
Unchecking 'Bounce app icon when in background' option would prevent jumping of the terminal icon.
Turning on Do Not Disturb mode for notifications will silence the "Your disk is almost full" notifications. There is a downside as this will silence all notifications.
This will not help with the underlying issue of your disk being too full if it is in fact too full. Additionally, you may need to turn Do Not Disturb on again.
It looks like it may be ...
This happened to me when I received a call from my phone. The notification appeared on my computer, but I canceled the call from my phone. This is how I got rid of the tenacious notification:
Quit FaceTime app
Open Terminal (⌘ + Spacebar and type 'Terminal')
Run this command: killall NotificationCenter
Should do the trick!
Do Not Disturb does also hide notifications and you can customize it like allow incoming calls from favorites or everyone.
When the device is locked, it won't light up the screen when receiving a message. But by enabling 'Always' on the bottom of the Do Not Disturb setting page, it will also block the notifications when your device is unlocked.
So they ...
just thought I would add this started happening a few weeks ago and that my boyfriend (who I suspect is slightly psychopathic) has access to my passcode and often says stuff about me he shouldn’t really know. Yesterday I googled phone hacking and cyberstalking and mysteriously the double notifications seem to have disappeared... please help!
I just found this workaround:
Backup and remove /Library/Bundles/OSXNotification.bundle
run softwareupdate --ignore macOSInstallerNotification_GM in a terminal
If you want to disable updates for specific apps, you can use softwareupdate --ignore.
Do all the following in Terminal
to list all available updates,
defaults read /Library/Preferences/com.apple.SoftwareUpdate.plist
to find the Identifier of the app you want to ignore, and then
softwareupdate --ignore 'Identifier'
Any App you need to actually run an installer & give admin perms, rather than just drag to Applications, installs elements somewhere inside the 'system' itself.
It is not wise to just throw these out if you no longer want them, as they will leave all the system bits behind.
As you threw away the component which contains the uninstaller, the app itself, ...
There is no way to customise the notification sound for 3rd party applications until the app developer build that functionality into their app. Applications like WhatsApp has options for that, you can change the notification sound from the app settings itself.
I suggest your can sync your account with Calendars and change Calendars ...
