This package currently installs in the wrong folder. As it is it installs into /home/user/perl5/...

where is it should install into

The difference, though small causes programs such as gmusicbrowser to not find the library if they're started with a .desktop file (it still works if you start it from the terminal). To install the library into the correct place please change the following line in the package() function from:

make DESTDIR="$pkgdir" install


make install INSTALLDIRS=vendor DESTDIR="$pkgdir"

Thank you.

My bad, I realize that you made also some changes to the PKGBUILD and I have just updated the patch file. I think, it's better if you take care of this package, so I have disowned it. Thanks!

Use the PKGBUILD and libnotify.patch files here:

and you won't have any problem.

Updated the md5sum, will have a look at the other problem a little later. Thanks for reporting!

I updated the checksums updpkgsums and now I have this one:

can't find file to patch at input line 4
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
The text leading up to this was:

Thanks, updated!

@PhotonX: yes, the libnotify.patch on gist adds the get_closed_reason method (it is really only two lines in the Notify.xs file). Upstream hasn't changed anything in over 4 years and, if you recall, there a lot of other patches in libnotify.patch that were required and we put in to bring the old package up to date. (cf. 2013-02-22 below).

@bidulock: Should I include the modified libnotify.patch into the package?

@bidulock thx.

$notification->signal_connect(closed => sub { Gtk2->main_quit });
