Dunst is a highly configurable and lightweight notification daemon.



Dunst has a number of build dependencies that must be present before attempting configuration. The names are different depending on distribution:

  • dbus
  • libxinerama
  • libxrandr
  • libxss
  • glib
  • pango/cairo
  • libgtk-3-dev
  • libnotify (for dunstify only)


git clone
cd dunst
sudo make install

Make parameters

  • PREFIX=<PATH>: Set the prefix of the installation. (Default: /usr/local)
  • BINDIR=<PATH>: Set the dunst executable's path (Default: ${PREFIX}/bin)
  • DATADIR=<PATH>: Set the path for shared files. (Default: ${PREFIX}/share)
  • MANDIR=<PATH>: Set the prefix of the manpage. (Default: ${DATADIR}/man)
  • SYSTEMD=(0|1): Enable/Disable the systemd unit. (Default: detected via pkg-config)
  • SERVICEDIR_SYSTEMD=<PATH>: The path to put the systemd user service file. Unused, if SYSTEMD=0. (Default: detected via pkg-config)
  • SERVICEDIR_DBUS=<PATH>: The path to put the dbus service file. (Default: detected via pkg-config)

Make sure to run all make calls with the same parameter set. So when building with make PREFIX=/usr, you have to install it with make PREFIX=/usr install, too.
