If you are trying to focus on your work and don't want to disable notifications completely then here is a tool called "NoNotifications" for you, which works in Ubuntu Unity. It is just a simple panel indicator which allows you to disable notification temporarily. This tool should be enhanced to offer more features like mobile OS's already have, to completely disable everything Like: tones, alerts, notifications, and so, and schedule a time to activate/deactivate could be a plus for this small application.
There isn't much going on with this utility instead from the panel it offers just two options "Don't disturb" and "Show notifications", you can choose whatever needs to be chosen and icon on the panel shows whether it is activated or not.

LinConnect is a great project to display Android notification on a Linux desktop using LibNotify, it is written in python programming language. LinConnect runs as private server on a Wi-Fi network for the Linux desktop and Android client application which installs on Android device, Android pushes the notifications through the LinConnect-client application to the Linux desktop. There is another great feature available within in Android client application that you are free to choose apps to display notification using LinConnect client application (It works with almost all Android applications). This project is in active development, which means you may can face bugs, I haven't faced any problem with it yet.
Simply it stops you to check every notification on your Android phone, so you can decide that notification is important to check or not. It is also a very convenient way to get all kind of notifications on your Linux desktop like email, text message, now playing, and such others.
Install patched NotifyOSD in Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty/13.10 Saucy/13.04 Raring/12.10 Quantal/12.04 Precise/10.04 Lucid

NotifyOSD is a GUI tool to configure how Ubuntu's NotifyOSD notification system looks and operates. NotifyOSD displays confirmation messages and notification messages. All messages use a similar look and style though different information may be displayed. Some messages will display text, icons, or a status bar. NotifyOSD by Ubuntu team has nothing to do with the possibility of moving or closing notifications. User can't get rid of notification until it goes away by itself, for instance if you are having multiple incoming messages, from any messenger in your Ubuntu, and you aren't able to close those notifications and you have to wait for them to go away by them-self.
With the help of patched NotifyOSD package which adds some extra features to Ubuntu's notification bubbles: change the notifications position, size, colors, adds an option to close the notifications on click and more. The time they stay can also be adjusted, and you can decide how long you want to display notification on your screen. NotifyOSD GUI application can customize the colors, fonts, and size of various elements of the Ubuntu's notification bubbles.
