Fix Unreadable Notifications in Lubuntu 14.10/15.04

Lubuntu Notification issue

For Lubuntu 14.10 and Lubuntu 15.04 users who are using the default theme, you may encounter a notification issue, like above picture shows, the bubble has horizontal bars and it’s hard to read the text.

Some one has report this bug and a workaround is to remove the panel-bg file from the theme folder.

To do so, open terminal from application launcher. When it opens, paste command below and hit Enter:

sudo rm -f /usr/share/themes/Lubuntu-default/gtk-2.0/images/panel-bg.png

At next boot or next log-in, the notifications should be fixed:

Lubuntu - xfce4-notifyd-config corretto
