musca executes 'dmenu_path' which has been removed in dmenu 0.4.4.

2676 execve("/bin/sh", ["sh", "-c", "dmenu_path | sort | dmenu -i -b "...], [/* 28 vars */] <unfinished ...>

2677 write(2, "sh: dmenu_path: command not foun"..., 34) = 34

I am running:

community/musca 0.9.24-1
community/dmenu 4.4-1

This task depends upon

Two solutions: Patch musca to use either lsx (which is used in dmenu_run) or dmenu-path-c from the AUR. Of course lsx would be the nicer solution, because it's already included in dmenu.

Reporting this upstream is probably a deadend. The project has been abandoned two years ago. I wrote a patch for this issue and would offer an AUR package including the patch built upon the abs-PKGBUILD.

Yeah, this is broken and upstream seems dead. Moved to AUR. Feel free to adopt.
