Caja Remove personal file sharing you can receive files over bluetooth into this folder Mate Linux

WTF, Downloads folder in mate has this annoying message “personal file sharing you can receive files over bluetooth into this folder”, with no way to dismiss it.

Stupid message, not worth the wasted space.

To remove:

Run synaptic and remove ‘mate-user-share’
then pkill caja

  1. Thanks, I wasted 15 minutes opening every menu which may have something to with file sharing without finding a way to turn this off.

  2. completely agree… and many thanks… stupid message.. these things are typical of Windows.. but how can they happen in Linux …? And then, to add offense to injury, you have to remove a whole package…
