I was finally in my work office and tested this.  I too do *not* get
a popup notification when printing.  I'm not sure when it changed, but
it does appear that it's not currently working.

Just as for you, printing works fine, it's just the notification that
is now missing.

I personally can live without the notification, but it is annoying to
know that it used to work and now doesn't.
