How to prevent notifyd notifications from taking focus in Xmonad and XFCE?


From https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1065196, add doIgnore for Xfce4-notifyd in your ManageHook. See below in xmonad.hs:

import XMonad
import XMonad.Config.Xfce
import XMonad.Hooks.ManageHelpers

main = xmonad xfceConfig {
, manageHook = myManageHook <+> manageHook xfceConfig

myManageHook = composeAll
  , className =? "Xfce4-notifyd" --> doIgnore

  • I don't use Ubuntu, but looks like people are finding success install XMonad on Ubuntu if that's what you're asking – Lionel Nov 15 '13 at 4:37
  • Sorry for not clarifying, I meant how to prevent applications from taking focus. I have only found the opposite, telling compiz which applications to "remove" from the focus stealing defence mechanism. – Stefanos Kalantzis Nov 15 '13 at 8:27
