Making notify-send work on Fedora 17 + Xfce.

Q: Is not notify-send command working for you on Fedora 17 with Xfce?
A: You need to install required packages.

In my case:
sudo yum install xfce4-notifyd notification-daemon libnotify
did the job.

Where if you don't have xfce4-notifyd installed, command will execute without error, but no notification will be shown.

Now you can enjoy notifications like this one:
notify-send it\'s\ alive!
