@rrt I just made you a maintainer of the package. Feel free to apply these changes yourself!

Thank you for this package! However, few things are missing:

1. python2-dbus is missing as dependency

$ notify-listener
/usr/bin/notify-listener:21: PyGIWarning: Notify was imported without specifying a version first. Use gi.require_version('Notify', '0.7') before import to ensure that the right version gets loaded.
from gi.repository import Notify, GObject
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/notify-listener", line 25, in <module>
import dbus
ImportError: No module named dbus

After install, it worked with the same warning.

2. Update the instructions

The most important being number 5 without which no notifications arrived:
5. Start the listener int he background:
$ notify-listener &

Perhaps, copy-paste them from Github!

3. Suggestions

* I would rename the binary notify-listener to libnotify-irssi-listener in /usr/bin to avoid future name collisions.

* It seems quite useful to make a unit for systemctl that should be placed in .config/systemd/user/libnotify-irssi.service that would contain the below which would allow to start it with 'systemctl --user start irssi-libnotify' instead of a background task:

Done. Thanks for letting me know.

@dakanya, how are you starting X?

please make sure you are completely up to date and have merged all your pacnews.

I'm trying to get this to work but this error has me stumped. I suspect it's something to do with systemd and dbus.

# Failed to open connection to "session" message bus: Unable to autolaunch a dbus-daemon without a $DISPLAY for X11
