View Full Version : [ubuntu] Unwanted box kees popping up in right hand corner

November 2nd, 2010, 04:20 PM
I have an Ubuntu 8.04 computer system that is isolated. by that I mean it is not connected to the internet or a printer.

That is the way I want it for now.

However, when I start to use it a yellow dialog box opens up in the upper right hand corner and says:

Not connected

Printer may not be Connected.

I know this. I want it this way. When I click that away with okay, it goes away for a second or two and then comes back.

I would like to stop it continually returning. I do not mind if it tells me on an initial start up. I just do not want to to keep bugging me.

How do I get rid of it?

Just wondering...8.04 is a little old isn't it? Anyway...you could just uninstall network-manager and cups (search in Synaptic and select all the stuff that looks relevant), which should prevent those messages from popping up.
