In GNOME3 under Fedora 21, is there a way to disable the bottom status bar that pops up every time the mouse cursor touches the bottom of the screen?

Something similar to the extension No Topleft Hot Corner that disables the Activities hot corner in the top left of the screen.

    This was removed upstream (I don't remember if it happend in 3.14 or 3.16 but anyway, there's no message/status bar in gnome-shell 3.18) so probably the easiest for you is to upgrade to current 3.18. Dec 9, 2015 at 12:23

Notifications (and this whole bar) have been reworked in newer releases of GNOME, starting with 3.16. That means the easy fix is to upgrade to a newer GNOME release, and since you're on Fedora, that's easily done simply by going to a newer Fedora release. Fedora 23 is just out, and, actually, this is good timing for an upgrade, since Fedora 21 reached end-of-life status just a recently, December 1st, 2015.

  • Thanks. That's exactly what I was going to do as soon as I find some time :)
