Wow, strong words. Good to that you make your frustration known before
it eats you alive
The notifications are generated via libnotify. They are not meant to
interrupt anything, in particular they shouldn't result in a pop-up
dialog which grabs focus and has to be acknowledged. Are you seeing
something annoying like that, or why do you find them annoying?
Sorry, no, currently these notifications cannot be turned off. The need
for that hadn't been anticipated. But now that I know it would be easy
to add a configuration option.
Should that be per peer or global? Do you want to suppress only
notifications for successful syncs or also for failed ones?
This would be for advanced users and would default to "notifications
enabled" (because otherwise normal users will never know that they can
be enabled). The setting would not be exposed via the sync UI, because
it doesn't have a concept of "system settings for sync".
Just becoming a serious pet peeve. Especially because I've spent a helluva
lot of time hunting for a solution before I resorted to public wailing. The
popups occasionally catch a mouse click, but they also leave the notification
icon live tempting me to distraction to check it...
I'd be happy to hand edit one of the config(ini) files...
I only have one sync peer, so I'm not really qualified to answer per peer/global.
If it's straightforward, I would think that separating "info" versus
would make a lot of sense.
Or is there a way to catch it at the libnotify level (for only syncevo)? (I
don't think so...)
I really like the software and it works well, but when it's working correctly
I wish it would be quiet...
