Build Status Coverage Status



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
  • libxdg-basedir
  • glib
  • pango/cairo
  • libgtk-3-dev


git clone
cd dunst
sudo make install

Make parameters

  • PREFIX=<PATH>: Set the prefix of the installation. (Default: /usr/local)
  • MANPREFIX=<PATH>: Set the prefix of the manpage. (Default: ${PREFIX}/share/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.

Checkout the wiki for more information.
