How to disable/enable indicator(status) in ubuntu using terminal.

enter image description here If possible, please let me know.

  • Please, be a little bit more specific : version, Unity/Gnome ? By "indicator(status)", you mean the icon on the upper right corner ? Or the messages popping out over there ? – Simon Van Machin Mar 1 '18 at 12:15

You are running Unity. Maybe try, as suggested here, disabling the service providing the infos for the indicators (therefore, avoiding unity indicators to launch), type :

   sudo mv /usr/lib/unity/unity-panel-service ~/unity-panel-service.bak

(You basicaly move the service file to a backup file in your home directory, to undo, simply remove them tho other way around).
