Hello. In Control Center->Notifications there's no any option about Energy. In Contro Center->Energy there's no any option about notifications. I'm using a brand new Fedora 29, which uses Upower. Thanks a lot.

  1. select a gnome-shell that provides this features
  2. make a script :

  3. use (GNOME) Tweaks under Top Bar -> battery porcentege

Thanks a lot for giving me some clues.

*I've searched several Gnome extensions but none has convinced me...most are outdated.

*Tweak related to "Top Bar" is not what I want.

"Ubuntu-16-battery-notification" is a Bash script which uses a cronjob to run acpi command to get the desired value and then launch notify-send. I haven't acpi command installed (Fedora comes with Upower instead) but this would not be a problem...The problem is the cronjob is a very ugly way, I think.

*"Battery-monitor" is a Python script which seems quite good but it uses acpi command too. I'll try it, anyway. But before, as maybe this solution is a little overkill and my Fedora uses DBus-based UPower service, I'll try to implement an idea you have given me: I'll try to adapt the script shown in first answer in https://askubuntu.com/questions/54298... to my use case.

Thanks!

Well, I've just noticed that simply activating general notifications button in Control Center-Notification windows, without having to activate any of specific program notification, it works.
