I am on BunsenLabs (debian jessie 8.2). One day the notifications started looking like this.

minimal notifications

I don't remember messing with anything to with notification themes. If I select these options from the notification options, nothing happens.

Selecting these options doesn't do anything

How do I reset or fix this?

    That's another notification daemon. Remove it and restart X. Jan 10, 2017 at 16:15

As ipor-sircer noted, it was an extra notification daemon called dunst that was installed. I started getting regular notifications again after I have uninstalled it, logged out and logged in.
