With unified I mean: have GNOME and KDE applications use the same

Solution 1 uses notify-osd on both desktops.

Solution 2 makes GNOME notifications use Plasma notification system.

Both solutions ensure a user will get consistent notifications, whether
they use GNOME or KDE applications on their desktop.
