Possible missing dependency for `kitty` package

When I run a kitty command from a kitty terminal I get

OSError: Failed to load with error: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

To to see the error open a kitty terminal and run any command similar to

kitty sh -c 'whoami && read'

It seems that the `startup-notification` package must be installed manually to solve this issue, however it is not declared as a dependency of `kitty`

Re: Possible missing dependency for `kitty` package

Nope, nothing in the kitty package is linked to Make sure you're running what you think you are by checking `type kitty`, then check it with lddtree to see what's actually trying to load that library.

Re: Possible missing dependency for `kitty` package

kitty tries to dynamically load that library: … ktop.c#L33
It is not a fatal error, the missing library simply means that no startup notification is sent when using xorg. For wayland that library is useless. … latest.txt

It should maybe be declared as an optional dependency.
