That commit just seems to remove the derivation all together?

As for the previous commit that does have the derivation:

cmakeFlags = [ "../src" ];
should use cmakeDir, i think.

Also, the use of lib and stdenv.lib in meta is not consistent. Could just do

  meta = with stdenv.lib; {
    description = "A cool desktop panel for KDE Plasma 5";
    license =;
    homepage = "";
    maintainers = with maintainers; [ shamilton ];
    platforms = platforms.linux;

and lose the lib attribute, a bit cleaner imo.

Also, shouldn't extra-cmake-modules be a nativeBuildInput?

mkDerivation rec {
