How to Turn Off Notifications in Banshee

The music player banshee which is part of the default Ubuntu setup pops up a message each time a new track starts playing.

To turn this off

  1. Open Banshee
  2. Go to Edit, preferences, extensions
  3. Enable Notification Area Icon
  4. The Icon should now show up - right click on it
  5. Uncheck Show notifications
  6. Disable the Notification Area Icon again
    1. Very annoying - the option to turn off notifications is hidden on a menu you can’t get to by default.
