Bug Description

Libnotify 0.7.0 contains a number of API changes and one of them affects xfc4-nofityd. 'notify_notification_new' has lost its widget argument. To make xfce4-volumed build again you need to change

Of course there needs to be a proper detection of the version in configure, but I'm just a lazy package maintainer and not a developer.

Changed in xfce4-volumed:

This one is compatible with 0.4.x, 0.5.x and 0.7.x... Doesn't even need any magic! It's fixed in same way in Thunar's code. This is the patch we are using in Gentoo Linux.

Thanks, Samuli Suominen
