=== To use syslog-notify you must redirect syslog output to the pipe '/var/spool/syslog-notify'

Example for syslog-ng (add to /etc/syslog-ng.conf): destination d_syslog_notify { pipe("/var/spool/syslog-notify"); }; log { source(src); destination(d_syslog_notify); };

Consult the manual of the syslog daemon used on your system for accordant information

Fix for compilation error (shared upstream):
too many arguments to function ‘notify_notification_new’

Forgot to mention that I've shared the patch upstream ...

# snippet for syslog-ng.conf
# make a pipe for syslog-notify that can be used by members of the group "wheel"
destination d_syslog_notify { pipe("/var/spool/syslog-notify" group("wheel") perm(0660)); };
log { source(src); destination(d_syslog_notify); };
