Mouse and geometry (-x, -y and -W width) support for dmenu version 4.7 are offered in the new package

Patches for line height and xyw are not yet available for version 4.7
Also, 4.7 introduces a -w option, which is different from the width option of the 4.6 xyw patch. Package will not be updated until these issues are resolved by

@siphon: Thank you for bringing these changes to my attention and for your patched version of PKGBUILD. Changes now implemented in package.

The PKGBUILD fails on 3 files and one hash. Here is the patch if you're interested in fixing it

@Archonaut Many thanks for your excellent suggestion, which I have now implemented with package version 4.6-2. I will keep the name of the package the same though, to keep things simple.

There is another patch, "line height", which controls the vertical size, thus being a natural complement to xyw. Applied after xyw, the line height patch fails.
( Is this the reason why you didn't use it here ? )

However, "line height" succeeds with a fuzz factor of 3.
This line in PKGBUILD, at the end of the "prepare()", should do the trick:
patch -p1 -F 3 < ../dmenu-$pkgver-line-height.diff

(of course, "$pkgver-line-height.diff" should be added in the source array, and its sha256 in the sums ...)
