Ubuntu client: how to configure logo placement and notifications

The client on ubuntu 14.04 works beautifuly, but there are two things that are very blocking but I fail to configure:

  • the “sync” orange logo on the top left of the screen is over the “close” button of the current application, which I can not longer directly click (because the put seafile client on the foreground instead. Now I need to reduce first the current application window before being able to close it)

  • there is a continuous flow of notification on the top right of the screen, which is informative but also very distracting when working on something else.

Is there a way to configure these two things ?

Have a look at this article: https://blogs.seafile.com/2016/07/13/how-to-fix-tray-icon-display-issue-on-ubuntu-14-04/

If you want to stop the notifications, just click on the icon, go to settings and choose not to be notified anymore.
