Where to adjust environment path for power manager install

Trying to update the xfce4-power-manager to 4.19 and the below error occurred.  The libnotify package is installed and of he correct version, however, the installer can not find it.

I see the recommendation to alter the config path, but have no clue what file to do this in, or how to do it and not break anything else in the p-m package. Appreciate any suggestions on this.

Thanks

*** The required package libnotify was not found on your system.
*** Please install libnotify (atleast version 0.4.1) or adjust
*** the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
*** installed the package in a nonstandard prefix so that
*** pkg-config is able to find it.

Re: Where to adjust environment path for power manager install

Debian-based distros tend to separate development packages from binary packages. Look for a libnotify-dev package and install that.

Re: Where to adjust environment path for power manager install

Thank you ToZ and CwF for the information.  For an old guy, I am finding this Xfce fun to learn about, but I am still breaking it. The best piece of advice I ever got about Linux was to use Timeshift for backup. To that I added Foxclone and Homi, thus, it is easy to play and break without out any bad, lasting repercussions.

I am still reading about Xfce and need to learn more about the order to build and install the modules in. I have been reading the Start documents to better understand.  I attempted to build and install the xfce4-session-4.19.2 module and had a handful of deprecations, this is one of them.

It may be that 4.19 is just not going to work in Bookworm without a lot of manipulation and I will need to wait for Xfce and Debian to prepare it, I read that 4.19, with 19 bing odd, this is a release that is not ready for prime time. Patience is in order I suppose.  smile

Re: Where to adjust environment path for power manager install

Much of the 4.19 version is available in the debian experimental repo. These are .debs but have to be specifically installed through apt. I have not tried to do it myself yet but they are there.

Thank you, I had no idea about the experimental repo. I did a quick search and found the Debian Experimental page, and will read it.
