Code:
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.

Code:
$curl https://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/27/Workstation/x86_64/iso/Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-27-1.6.iso && 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" ???. 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.
