I'm using Unity on Ubuntu 12.04 and when I change the volume, I get a different volume indicator than the stock 12.04 notification. Based on what I've found searching through google, it is the gnome volume indicator. How can I change it back?

Things I have installed that I think may have affected it:

  • compizconfig settings manager
  • gnome-shell

Volume Notification

Additionally, the notifications have changed color. I tried the solution described here but it did not have any affect on the notifications whatsoever.

Regular Notification

  • What do you mean by "originally"?. Ubuntu has been using a different notification system from about 2009. It might be possible to change it back, I don't know. Hope it doesn't brake anything. – mikewhatever May 9 '12 at 14:38
  • By originally, I mean the stock volume notification. The one that appears when you first install Ubuntu 12.04. – Doran May 9 '12 at 14:45

I had installed xubuntu-desktop and the solution to both of these notification problems was to remove xfce4-notify: solution
