That package would be the gnome-screensaver package.


But the desktop notification is sent through libnotify-bin.


The leave message feature works okay for me.  I hadn't ever used it
before but I just tested it on my machine.  But if it isn't working
for you then you might wish to poke at the notify-send program as a
debugging aide.  The notify-send program generates the same type of
desktop notifications as leave message.  If that isn't working then it
would be an easier to debug there and closer to the problem.
