Ubuntu – Adjust volume via commandline so that volume notify pops up

command linelircmultimediaremote

is there a way to adjust the system volume via commandline so that the default volume popup (the one that pops up when pressing the media keys on notebooks) is still shown.

I need this for my remote control.
It'll be run using a lircrc file and irexec.
