Reported by: ken@… Owned by: Douglas R. Reno

CMake Error at Source/cmake/OptionsGTK.cmake:415 (message):
  libnotify is needed for USE_LIBNOTIFY.

I can do this if you want, but if you're already there, feel free.

Seems it's not strictly required: -DUSE_LIBNOTIFY=OFF might disable it.

Thanks, it looks as if that works (running make now, cmake was happy). That will make it recommended. I'll report back. Douglas, if you haven't prepared it, you can pass it back to me if you wish.

Yeah, it builds - I had not realised Douglas is now working on 1.16.2.
