Thanks very much for looking into this!
you are welcome.
$ rpm -q notification-daemon xfce4-notifyd
package xfce4-notifyd is not installed
So, should the xfce4-notifyd be installed?
Nope, either one should suffice.
$ ps -A | grep notif
21 ? 00:00:00 kacpi_notify
31 ? 00:00:00 fsnotify_mark

"nothing" (as far as I can tell) happens....
Yeah, because there is no notification daemon running. It used to be
started by dbus-activation automatically but obviously this is no longer
true. I vaguely seem to remember that it's not needed in gnome-shell,
but they definitely should have notified me of this change. :(
The easiest way to start the daemon again is to run
cp /usr/share/applications/notification-daemon.desktop /etc/xdg/autostart
as root. On the next login you should have notifications again - not
only of osmo but other programs as well.
Please let me know if this fixes your problem.
