This still isn't working for me, so I ended up writing this:

It doesn't take care of handling keys, so you'll have to bind it yourself.

This at least got pommed to run for me:
It seems that the issue is that the new version of confuse does not include
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

@glowck The fix you mentuioned didn't see to work for me.

After recent updates it stopped working.
If you get the following error on "systemctl status pommed.service":
"/usr/bin/pommed: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object" then just rebuild and install pommed-light again and it will work.

There is a macro in pommed.h M_VERSION that is hard coded to 1.45lw. So yes, they just forgot to update the version number that is printed. Code is new version.

This seems to be installing an old version for me. I'm not really sure how, because it says that it is download v1.50, but when I run the program I get

I: pommed v1.45lw Apple laptops hotkeys handler
I: Copyright (C) 2006-2011 Julien BLACHE <>
I: Configuration file not found, using defaults

Maybe someone forgot to update a version number?

srl commented on 2014-03-19 17:28

@dieelt: yes of course. Updated to 1.47lw.

dieelt commented on 2014-03-19 10:33

Would it be possible to tag the latest master and update the package to include the those changes? I notice that support for additional models, including mine :), have been included in the master-branch.

@JKAbrams: fixed, thanks.
