Bug Description

Binary package hint: notify-osd

According to Notify OSD specification:

[the term leading means “left” whenever the system is using a left-to-right language, and “right” whenever the system is using a right-to-left language. The term trailing means “right” whenever the system is using a left-to-right language, and “left” whenever the system is using a right-to-left language.]

When talking about icons:

"If the bubble has no text, the icon should be horizontally centered within the window. Otherwise, the icon should be horizontally and vertically centered within a 3-em square that is flush with the leading side,"

If I understand that correctly, that wants to say that the icon of an RTL notification should be on the right side, but it is shown in the left side, leaving an unaesthetic space between text and icon (see screenshot)
