When I receive files over bluetooth, my system makes an annoying peep and gives an even more annoying popup for every single file. How can I disable this.

The solution is to disable the notification from the GNOME-User-Share settings.

  • Open Personal-File-Sharing from the system menu or Unity Dash.
  • When it opens
    enter image description here
  • Disable the "Notify about received files" option.

I found this after I ran into the problem a little too often really needed a solution.
