  sudo make install

[Configuration]
  --enable-oss:    By default Volume Icon will be built with ALSA as its
                   backend. Note that it is not possible to build with both ALSA
                   and OSS support at the moment, so using this flag will
                   disable ALSA support.
                 
  --enable-notify: Enables notifications, this adds a dependency for
                   libnotify >= 0.5.0.

If you need to use notifications, then make sure you have notify-send package installed.
apt-get install notify-osd
I have tested this with notify-osd version 0.9.29

Test it with
notify-send test
This must show a bubble notification in Ubuntu
