After installing Gnome 3 on my Ubuntu 13.04 (Unity) the "notification dialog theme" (screenshot below) changed. I'd like to know if is possible to return to the Unity default notification dialog theme without needing to uninstall Gnome 3.

Thanks in advance.

Try to remove Gnome notification daemon and install the Ubuntu notify-osd package:

sudo apt-get remove notification-daemon
sudo apt-get install notify-osd

Actually, it did not worked, even after uninstalling Gnome 3 with sudo apt-get remove gnome* that also removed Unity and then I had to install it again and the notification still uses the Gnome 3 theme. –  Zignd Sep 14 '13 at 1:21
