I indeed tried `notifications-notify`. And it does not work, reports error that 
it needs dbus. PS. I used the Homebrew formulae version Emacs.
I considered the order of conditions. Because notifications and notify-send etc 
requires dbus. So I guess only Linux supports that. So add system-type 
detection will be better. WDYT?
