That is enabled by default in Fedora workstation (Gnome).

If not, go to Settings --> Notifications and enable notifications from Terminal (or whatever terminal you are using).


Also, you can display notifications from scripts or large downloads (wget) that you may be running (and that take a while to finish). The simple command notify-send text will display text in a notification. For more info: notify-send --help.

One thing I like if I don't want get distracted by all the notifications my system wants to display is the extension Do not disturb from Gnome extensions. Simply mute all notifications.

Thanks! I also had to make sure to use the default bashrc. I was using a custom modified one from previous distro installations.
