The original sources do not work with new version of libnotify (0.7).
I added a small patch to solve this issue.

This program does not work with new version of libnotify. Also recompiling does not work.
I'm working on a simple patch to solve this issue.

Default option is that krb5-auth-dialog only starts if a kerberos ticket is already present:

-a, --auto Only run if an initialized ccache is found (default)
-A, --always Always run

So you have to start it via
krb5-auth-dialog -A

Hope it helps :-)

When I try to start krb5-auth-dialog before kinit, I got this from strace:
open("/tmp/krb5cc_500", O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE|O_CLOEXEC) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
munmap(0xb7855000, 16384) = 0
exit_group(0) = ?

krb5-auth-dialog just exit 0.

My friend using fedora krb5-auth-dialog 0.16 in Gnome don't have this issue.
I have confirmed even with 0.16 in arch, the problem is the same.

Does this tool hate KDE?

New version 0.17 includes a plugin to obtain an AFS token. You can enable it by running
gconftool-2 --set --list-type=string --type=list /apps/krb5-auth-dialog/plugins/enabled [afs]

Simply rebuild this package to work with heimdal-1.3.2.
