Thread: newbie, openSUSE 13.1 Gnome, stop bottom bar from popping up?

    Default newbie, openSUSE 13.1 Gnome, stop bottom bar from popping up?

    I am new to openSUSE, and pretty much a linux novice. I had been running a different distribution but wanted to get away from it. I installed the Gnome version of 13.1. Everytime my mouse goes to the bottom of the screen a bar pops up from the bottom and where I was at looses focus. Is there anyway around this?

    That bar at the bottom is a notification bar - so it's kinda important.

    Bringing it up should require actually hitting the bottom of the screen
    rather than just being in the vicinity of it.

    I guess I'll just have to get used to it then. I really didn't know what it was for.

    Thank you.

    Install this Gnome extension - Insensitive Message Tray.
    https://extensions.gnome.org/extensi...-message-tray/

    You can invoke the bar manually by pressing [windows button] + M
