For Xubuntu you need the -gtk2 variant. There isn't any executable to run, it should just be loaded when the xfce panel indicator applet loads.

What is the exact output when you try to install the indicator-notifications-gtk2 package?

There was more luck today. After cleaning up each related package and trying again the program works now as expected.

Here is the output (which doesn`t prove that same thing didn`t worked yesterday):
