I recently installed the Xubuntu desktop environment on my Ubuntu machine. It's nice, but I switched back to Ubuntu as by default desktop environment. But when I change the volume or brightness, the HUD icons are still from the XUbuntu theme. Also, when I shutdown, the splash screen says Xubuntu.

I'm quite sure that I am in fact running Ubuntu:

$ echo $DESKTOP_SESSION
ubuntu

and in /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

user-session=ubuntu

Install these packages and their dependencies:

notify-osd
notify-osd-icons

Also purge this package:

xfce4-notifyd 

Finally, you should reconfigure plymouth, e.g. by installing and using galternatives and update the initramfs with the update-initramfs command.

After a reboot, you should be back to normal.
