How to customize on screen notifications?

The Unity notifications (notify-osd) are very much useful and nice. But It seems I can't close them after I get notified. They get blurred when I hover mouse over them, but they don't close. Which is sometimes very annoying.

I Googled about the matter and it seems, there is no way to close them until now.

Can I at least control their notification display time? (If I can close them, that will be lot better). I think, It will be easy by changing some of their settings file.

Note that, I am using Ubuntu 12.04 with Unity, specifically Unity 3D.

I think this can help – Samik Jun 22 '12 at 17:36
Closing them is a dupe of this question. Shortening the display duration is a dupe of this question. – Tom Brossman Jun 23 '12 at 11:43
@Samik, I am using Precise, and that link was only for 11.04 and 11.10 – Anwar Shah Jun 23 '12 at 11:47
