How to stop window pop up ?

A small but nagging problem: My os is Linux Mint. Each time calibre has completed some job, its window pops up in front of everything else on my monitor screen. How can I stop this behaviour?

Which jobs?

I don't think there is a system wide setting to suppress job completion notification messages. Some optional plugins have options to suppress them, such as Count Pages and Modify ePub.

I want the notification messages from Bulk Metadata Download, but I suppress the ones from Count Pages and Modify ePub.

I'm on Windows, but I assume MacOS and Linux would be the same. Kovid goes to considerable lengths to make them consistent, which is more than can be said for many x-platform application developers.

BR is correct. Consistent is what Kovid does

Minimize the window or turn on focus stealing prevention in your window manager's settings.

that one snuck past me, I guess because I never put calibre in the tray.

I was thinking of notification messages such as this :

Nope, when that is enabled, Calibre is very 'chatty' (and noisy. I sometimes feed my audio to my Surround receiver)

Curious - why would anyone want calibre in the tray?

I only use it for applications that enhance Windows or provide service like features - e.g. thesaurus, clipboard manager, snippets etc.

I dislike 'chatty' software.

Just look at the possible 'Windows Actions" you can attach sounds to.
I have just a few: "error" (hear that one a lot ), "Input needed (Attention)"

Problem solved with your help.
Thank you all.
'Prevent focus stealing' worked.
Though 'minimize calibre window' did not.
