I tried to install cabal install:

cabal install taffybar
Resolving dependencies...  
cabal: dependencies conflict: xmonad-contrib-0.10 requires mtl ==
mtl- was excluded because taffybar-0.1.3 requires mtl >=2

A document to show how I install it from source would be nice.


here are my version details:

~ > cabal --version                                                            
cabal-install version 0.8.0
using version of the Cabal library
~ > ghc --version 
The Glorious Glasgow Haskell Compilation System, version 6.12.1

I'm under Ubuntu maverick.


Thanks. I finally got around to looking at this. I was unable to reproduce your exact error - mtl2 should really
just work with xmonad/xmonad-contrib/taffybar.

Unfortunately, for independent reasons it looks like it will only work with ghc7 at the moment. There are two
problems: my cabal version requirements were a bit high and it looks like 6.12 doesn't like something about
some of my FFI declarations. It should be possible to make it compatible with both, so I'll try to release an
updated package soon.


Nice! Update the issue if you finished it and I test it again ;)
