Hi Aleksandar.

Unfortunately, Npgsql doesn't support Guid datatypes. You could try using it as
string inside your database and use the NpgsqlDbTypes.Text as the datatype.

Could you provide me a link to this uniqueidentifier patch? I could help you
add this specific type to a custom Npgsql assembly.
