In your function, the actual command send to shell is 'notify-send Time is up! 1 minutes'

address@hidden notify-send Time is up! 1 minutes
Invalid number of options.

You should modify your function in this way, quote notification string before send it to your shell

(defun show-notification (notification)
 (shell-command (format "notify-send '%s'" notification) )

I'm trying to set up tea-time.el to use native linux notification
(through notify-send).

The current "notification function" in tea-time.el is:

(defun show-notification (notification)
 "Show notification. Use mumbles."
 (if (program-exists "mumbles-send")
   (start-process "tea-time-mumble-notification" nil "mumbles-send"
 (message notification)

What would be the most straightforward way of using _notify-send_ in
this function?

(I tried:

(defun show-notification (notification)
 (shell-command (concat "notify-send " notification)

but I get an "Invalid number of options" error.)
