Bug Description

Ubuntu (Unity) lacks an actual "Do Not Disturb" mode and NoNotifications partially achieves this by allowing to temporarily suppress notifications, but it would be great if the following could be integrated as well, maybe in a single "Do Not Disturb" mode:
- mute the sound
- disable any kind of popups (not sure if that's possible)
- a scheduler, so you don't have to manually start this mode if for instance, you use it for your work hours every day

Oh my god Alin, so sorry, how could I have missed this bug report! I ran into it when I installed the webupd8 app on my phone, and ran into the nice article.
Thanks for your suggestion, and I will definitely look into it. Actually happily surprised by the respons!

Great, thank you!

Hi Alin, partially applied the requested. The indicator was completely rewritten, a number of options is added:

- suppressing only notifications, containing specific strings
- suppressing sound (on request :) )
- logging (storing) missed notifications
- running on startup
- remembering the last state (suppressing or not)

Furthermore many smaller interface & behaviour improvements.

This suggestion reminded me of the Android version of "Do not disturb". Taking inspiration from it, I find very useful the option to enable "Do not disturb" mode for a variable amount of time (e.g. for one hour). Additionally, the option to "suppress specific notification" could be complemented with the option to "allow specific notification".

I posted it here because it seems compatible with Alin suggestion :)

Hi igor, Thanks fro the suggestions! Good ideas, I will definitely consider that for 1.0. For 9.x, still working on a different procedure to read the notifications from dbus-monitor. I found one issue with HP notifications, breaking the underlying monitor. On the way solving it, I ran into a better way of logging the notifications in a "human readable way".

Thanks again, and it seems likely I will include it!
