This git tree is over two years old (June 2014) I've switched to which was last updated in December.
It builds without patches, has the most current merges, and fixes the OSD interruptions on KDE/Plasma. (

If anyone else wants to try it, just change the source to
and comment out the patch line.

Sorry about that. I'm not using the old mac hardware anymore, so I'm not actively using this pkg. I've made the recommended changes, since it seemed to compile with them on my machine.

Here is a correction for both mentioned issues:
- libsystemd instead of libsystemd-login is required
- for gio/gio.h glib2 is needed
- Needed dependencies are added to PKGBUILD: dbus, glib2 and libsystemd libx11 libxext libxss glibc

Now package compiles fine.

I'm getting an error installing this package:
fatal error: 'gio/gio.h' file not found

Am I missing any dependency?

This package has a non-declared dependency of libsystemd-login, which conflicts with a systemd installation. Is this really necessary?


- Correct package dependencies.
- Remove libsystemd-login dependency if possible.
