I'm using gnome shell with user theme, and all notifications appear transparent and with no text, only icon appears.

I tried Shell OSD Extension too ( https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/243/shell-osd/ ) and nothing happened.

Is someone else experiencing this? This is not the only theme i tried...
