I guess you mean xfce4-notifyd, but this does not work anyway. The
problem is that gpk-update-icon only produces persistend notifications
that onle work in gnome-shell. They don't work with notification-deamon
either, so GNOME fallback mode lacks update notifcations, too.

More info on this is in this thread of March this year:

The only solutions I am aware of: 
     1. Patch the xfce4-smartpm-plugin for xfce4-panel 4.8 
     2. Package Panu's update icon (see above list thread)
