Ubuntu – Weird behavior when overriding gnome alert styling


After playing around with the i3 tiling window manager, I had my fill and decided to uninstall it and continue using gnome. However, to my dismay, something in i3 overrode the default gnome alert box. For example, when connecting to wifi, I get a gray or blue box instead of the nice ubuntu popups. The screenshot says it all. Any ideas?

After installing i3 and testing with different notification daemons, It's seems that the notification you're receiving are from dunst notification daemon.

Simply removing it should fix the issue.

sudo apt-get --purge autoremove dunst

is the command you need to execute in a terminal.

Check the screenshot of dunst http://knopwob.org/dunst/screenshots.html
