Temporarily disable notifications in KDE


I want a way to temporarily disable the notification popups in KDE. Preferably without having to wade through a load of screens. Basically it's for when I'm watching movies or playing games full-screen.

Any good ideas for doing this? Maybe a system tray applet, or a shell command would be good also.

Is 'putting the window above others' not sufficient?

Right-clicking the title bar and going Advanced > Keep Above Others does not work, no.

I really can't be going through them all though. Are those settings in a config file somewhere? That way I could create an alternate file with them all turned off, and then just switch between them (and maybe have to make the program reread its config).

Re-opening this issue. MTK358's method doesn't do what I want, since programs like Kopete revert to using their own notification mechanism, which again pops up over what I was doing.

If, for example, Kopete has its own from-scratch built-in notification mechanism (i.e. create a new decoration-less window and delete it after a certain delay), then I don't think there is a way to turn it off outside the application itself.

Well those notifications don't appear if the system tray notifications are still on.

So, essentially, what needs to happen is Kopete needs to "see" the system tray notifications as active, but when it makes a notification the system tray essentially ignores it.
