Hey hey, one more person from 2017 crying out to get this bug fixed/feature implemented.

Use Case:
My friend and I are trying to display some volume/brightness notifications for about 200millis on our franken-Chromebooks that we wiped and on which we installed Ubuntu. Alas, it seems the current solution is still:

sudo apt-get remove notify-osd
sudo apt-get install notification-daemon

Cheers to the future where sensibility prevails and someone realizes that individuals want to use this feature for their own ends, not just "developers" who are building applications.

Behold the notify-send help text that brought me here:

  notify-send [OPTION?] <SUMMARY> [BODY] - create a notification

  -?, --help Show help options

  -a, --app-name=APP_NAME Specifies the app name for the icon
  -i, --icon=ICON[,ICON...] Specifies an icon filename or stock icon to display.
  -c, --category=TYPE[,TYPE...] Specifies the notification category.
