notify-send fails to specify a destination, and my notification doesn't appear onscreen. Why?

http://unix.stackexchange.com – Notification through libnotify seems to work under icewm, as the different notifications from applications like konversation show. But I can't get it to work from the command line using the notify-send command. When I try it, the notification doesn't appear on my screen at all. How can I get it to work under icewm? [Edit: I've now tried dbus-monitor. It seems there's a problem with notify-send: it isn't specifying any destination, whereas konversation for example specifies knotify as destination. Maybe this is what's causing the problem?] (HowTos)
