I close the qjackctl main window and leave it there as system tray.
The same goes for the bubbles that announce a problem, or the need to
restart after doing changes.
Is there any chance this might be addressed in a future update,
like as a configurable option? Could one at least try to comment it
out in the source code and recompile?
I am confused if you wish both jackd to stop running and the bubbles
not to show or just the bubbles.
I am interested in having the bubbles to not show
when closing the
window while jackd continutes.
Anyway, The timeout in qjackctl is (as indicated) a

I still haven't found it being set in qjackctls sources. So I
it uses qt's default 10secs.
I found the part where the bubbles are initiated, but don't know how
to specifythe timeout there, as it is somehow cascaded with other
functions and conditions.
choose a different timeout. I don't know which DE
you are using, but
in xfce there is a setting dialog for Notifications in with the
other system settings. In my case I can change the look (theme),
position, opacity and timeout. The default is 10s. Changing this
would affect all of you notifications, not just qjackctl, but if
that is distracting, I would guess others may be as well. If you
don't want any notifications, don't start the notification
app(let)... probably also a part of system settings.
Thank you. The situatio is a
bit different here on fluxbox, but thanks
again Len for pointing these possibilities out to me.
all the best!
