It would require runnig a Plasma workspace (desktop or netbook shell)

It is basically built in (thru plugins) to the workspace.

plasma-widgets-workspace contains the stuff that make a plasma shell implement
the org.freedesktop.Notifications interface.
Some packages depends or recommends 'notification-daemon' because they require
or can use that dbus interface.
Currently it is provided by
and the following packages has a 'install by default' relationship with
$ grep-dctrl -FDepends -FRecommends notification-daemon -sPackage
and I can't see why most of these packages should pull in notify-osd or xfce4-
notifyd when run by users of one of the KDE Workspaces
I'm not sure of the good way out of this, but I really think that the full
xfce stack sholud be coinstallable with the default stack by KDE, without
pulling in eachothers components.
Man, how could I install a pin?
The point is that you never need to mount the icon in order to click the 68-
inch front-side bus.
