The following works perfectly for me...

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
    (when window-system
      (setq appt-display-format 'window)

      ;; FIXME Check `notify-send' (in `libnotify-bin' Ubuntu package) is 
      (defun rgr/org-display (min-to-app new-time msg)
         (concat "notify-send "
                 "-i /usr/share/icons/gnome/32x32/status/appointment-soon.png "
                 "'Appointment' "
                 "'" msg "'")))
      ;; TODO For Windows users: use todochicku.el and the snarl notifier

      (setq appt-disp-window-function (function rgr/org-display)))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
