Hello--
From this link (sorry you will have to reassemble the long string)
I restored my system notifications.

Quoted without attribution:
I read a message on a message board that said to edit (as root) the file
/opt/kde3/bin/startkde. There seems to be an error on line 242:


Seems. But it is /not/ an error. It is good bash syntax, and intended this way.

With my limited skill and knowledge I agree
But quoting from /opt/kde3/bin/startkde:
#!/bin/sh
#
# DEFAULT KDE STARTUP SCRIPT ( KDE-3.4 )
#
I knote we are using a Bourne shell perhaps which might behave differently.

LD_BIND_NOW=true kdeinit +kcminit

The line should be split into two lines like this:


That is /wrong/.


LD_BIND_NOW=true
kdeinit +kcminit
Isn't LD_BIND_NOW=true still set for kdeinit +kcminit and the rest of the script?

Apparently the knotify program wasn't getting started when KDE starts
up. This fixed the problem for me.

I've read several messages about rebuilding the ARTS source rpms, but I
didn't have to do that.

It is a solution, but a *wrong* solution. Please read the following thread for an explanation:
