wget path_to_website/filename ; zenity --info --text "Download Done"

wget path_to_website/filename ; xmessage -nearmouse "Download Done"

wget path_to_website/filename ; kdialog --msgbox "Download Done"

Any of these three should work. Good Luck

xmessage should be installed already since is a xorg system command.

Kdialog and zenity make need to be install from the repos.

i think this would work, replace "curl fedora.iso" with your command and file manager "thunar" with your own.


$curl && thunar /home/user/Downloads
i havent tested above command but it looks ok to me.

I get notifications all the time - Fedora gnome. Check out notifications in "Settings" if similar.

The only way to do this is to run two commands, one for downloading the file and second to get notified.

"The only way" ???. There is never only one way to do things in Linux.

As I said, works for me - if you have Mate as your desktop it may offer the same settings options given its heritage.
