I installed awesome and i3 to try out fully tiled window managers, and it looks like the styling from awesome's notifications has overtaken xfce4's. Neither notify-osd nor notification-daemon are installed, and no changes the the Notifications xfce settings take effect. Purging awesome did not help either.

Example screenshot (notification stuck in upper left):


How do I get back to xfce notifications?


Same happened to me and this helped:

Notify-osd notifications appear unthemed in top-left corner

i3 installs dunst, which takes over ubuntu's notification system and shows notifications with i3 styling.

Stopping and uninstalling dunst fixed the problem for me.
