I have to change from notify-send because there is a bug when for example youtube is fullscreen on one screen causes my other screen not to display the notify-send popup.

Are there any alternatives to notify-send that works with multiple screens/fullscreen programs?

I found out by using the -u flag with the argument critical it will force it to show, a workaround.

notify-send -u critical foobar "foobar is a nice word"
