Libnotify error on make


Description Cristian Marchi 2013-01-11 17:22:12 CET
I get this error when compiling Parole from git in xubuntu 12.10 with xfce from git. Configure does not give any error.

Making check in notify

Sounds like you're missing libnotify-dev?
Comment 2 Cristian Marchi 2013-01-12 09:22:28 CET
Ooops...sorry! I was "sure" it was installed... So my report is not a bug. Thanks
Comment 3 Sean Davis editbugs 2013-02-21 12:50:06 CET
I have just tweaked the configure file.  Configure will now fail if the notification plugin is to be built, but libnotify-dev is not installed.

Thanks for pointing this bug out!
