I installed i3 alongside unity but now I see the i3 notification box while on unity.
How can I change this back to the unity one without removing i3? The other solutions to this problem seem to be removing the other WM/DE
For me this worked, I'm running Ubuntu 16.04
run the following commands with
create a file
/usr/bin/user_notify and write
the following text to the file.
#!/bin/bash set -euo pipefail if pgrep -x i3 >/dev/null ; then /usr/bin/dunst else /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/notify-osd fi
make the file executable by running
chmod a+x /usr/bin/user_notify
open the file
Remark To use the standard unity notifier (also in i3) just
in the file
For me, inspired by the other answers,
sudo apt remove dunst and logging out and in again was sufficient.
