Notification for android not working [ Drawable.icon ]

See original GitHub issue

I’m building an android app in buildozer with plyer. It seems that the notification don’t work. My simple code for notification using plyer:

notification.notify(title='WARNING!', message='This is a sample warning!')

It works on my computer but when I built it for android and run it on my phone, the app crashes when it tries to send a notification. It says that there’s no attribute icon for the app in I tried to look into it, but I don’t know what should I do.


requirements = python3,kivy,plyer,android
