Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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.
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).
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.
