I fixed the libnotify error, but please bear in mind that this version of notification-daemon on which this engine relies is heavily outdated and I'd like to suggest you to switch to other notification daemon implementations such us xfce4-notifyd.

I always liked the notification daemon theme that shipped with ubuntu up to 8.10. I got really disappointed when they dropped it on 9.+ releases. There are some nice engines for notification daemon still alive -but buggy- (slider, nodoka) but the whole project is being led to obscurity in favour of notify-osd. Enjoy it while it lasts :p

notification-daemon-engine-ubuntu is (roughly speaking) a skin for GNOME popup notifications []. It is no longer used in Ubuntu.
notify-osd is a new engine for notifications created by Canonical to replace the GNOME one [].

where are the differences to notify-osd?

It should be fixed now. Please report any problems.

Thanks for reporting. It seems like debian bumped their version of notification-daemon to 0.5 in sid and squeeze. Since Arch has 0.4 I'll need to find another workaround using the original sources from galago project.

I reported this package as outdated since some of the links were dead, unfortunately I have no idea of how I can help anymore than that. =/

Thank you! Works like a charm.

It seems like the ubuntu patches are against the debian patches so I've adapted the PKGBUILD to reflect the changes. I could use some feedback and/or fixes.
