Canonical’s Notify-OSD does not behave the same way as libnotify
does in other linux distributions.
+You can revert to the old notification-daemon following instructions
+in [this Ubuntu forums post][2] by [gradinaruvasile][2]:
+
+> 1. Install the notification-daemon package:
+>
+> sudo apt-get install notification-daemon
+>
+> 2. Rename the /usr/lib/notify-osd/notify-osd executable
+>
+> sudo mv /usr/lib/notify-osd/notify-osd /usr/lib/notify-osd/notify-osd-original
+>
+> 3. Create a symbolic link:
+>
+> sudo ln -s /usr/lib/notification-daemon/notification-daemon /usr/lib/notify-osd/notify-osd
+>
+> 4. Kill the original notification:
+>
+> sudo killall notify-osd
+>
+> 5. Launch the new notification - press alt+F2, type /usr/lib/notify-osd/notify-osd
+>
+> 6. Test:
+>
+> notify-send test test

We still need notifications for windows platforms.
