Based on these instructions, I have installed the Google Chrome / Chromium extension Chromify-OSD. But I can't see it working properly.

Look at this image to know what I mean.

Sounds like a bug. – James Nov 5 '11 at 13:37
Apparently, in the latest stable version of Chrome, Chromify-OSD is broken. A fix will be released shortly and your version will automagically be upgraded when it's available. Follow for details – Marco Ceppi Nov 20 '11 at 7:06
This question should instead be filed as a bug report, thanks! Instructions here. – Jorge Castro Jan 2 '12 at 20:31

This is really a bug. Anyway, here is a temporary fix.

For amd64:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/

For i386:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/

Well, the description of add-on in the web store says "This is a first release which does not support HTML5 notifications (but will in next release, view LaunchPad project page)". And I guess this is HTML5 notification which is currently unsupported. Hence its being displayed normally instead of native notifications
