Re: [Solved] Ugly blue notifications

Pardon the thread resurrection.

Thank you SO MUCH for finding a solution to this problem. I've been playing around with a net-installed Debian Wheezy, and somehow the dunst package got installed. All I got was that ugly blue bar, across multiple desktops (XFCE and MATE), and none of the GUI-based configuration tools could change it. I ran dpkg-reconfigure on every package that had "notify" in the title to try and reset the configuration (I assumed configuration was to blame), to no avail.

The above solution worked. Purge dunst, reboot the system, and no more ugly.

Re: [Solved] Ugly blue notifications

Thank you man for solution!!! I just googled this post. My problem that I install i3 then I remove it and my notifs under LXDE makes ugly blue sh*t, like on your screenshot.

sudo apt-get purge dunst

Then reboot.
This solves my problem on Lubuntu 13.10.

Re: [Solved] Ugly blue notifications

I stumbled upon this thread while searching for something else, but I want to add something to the discussion:
There is absolutely no need to reboot after purging dunst! Just

ps -A|grep dunst

and then

kill <pid>

or just use your preferred way of killing processes(via top, htop, etc...)

PS Also, you shouldn't say dunst is ugly, just say you don't like it. I(and many people who like minimalistic design) actually prefer the way it looks over any other notification system, but I use xfce4-notifyd because dunst can't handle progress bars (like the one you get when changing volume for example).
