Bug description:

   * Notification icons are not always shown correctly in chromium
  browsers.  Often icons are missing.  For frequent notification based
  apps this can and is distracting.  Sometimes the icon conveys meaning
  which is lost because the icon type is not shown.

  [Test Case]

   * Using Chromium/Chrome browser navigate to https://www.bennish.net

   * Click the authorize button to allow the browser to show
  notifications from that website.

   * Click the Show button - the notification pop's up but with an
  "missing icon" symbol in the notification.  It should show "i" for

   * Run software-properties-gtk from a terminal and Enable the proposed repository via the developer tab.
   * Install the packages: sudo apt install budgie-desktop budgie-core libbudgietheme0 libbudgie-private0 libbudgie-plugin0 gir1.2-budgie-1.0 libraven0
   * Logout and login.

   * Repeat the test - when clicking "Show" the notification popup now
  should & will display a valid "i" information icon.

  [Regression Potential]

   * Notifications are part of a separate budgie process and hence
  cannot by themselves crash the desktop.

   * However, I suppose the worse case scenario is that process itself
  could theoretically crash if a "bad/malformed" icon.  That would
  result in a loss of things like keyboard shortcuts & notifications

   * The mitigation here is that the patch itself is well tested by
  Upstream Solus, Debian Testing, 20.10 and other rolling releases.  No
  adverse issues have been raised on the upstream tracker. So it is
  considered the risk here to be very low.
