This fixes the build with TagLib 2:

Agreed, it is sad, @evorster. I tried out Strawberry, and I really like it, except for its inability to shuffle by album. Unfortunately, I use that a lot, so it was a deal breaker for me. I ended up settling (so far) on gmusicbroswer, although quodlibet also seemed like a reasonable option.

Yeah, it is sad to see it go unmaintained and finally succumbing to the slow march of progress.

I found Strawberry to be a good replacement.

Unfortunately Amarok is broken with the latest taglib update 1.13.1-1 -> 2.0-1. It no longer runs, and it no longer builds. There may be a potential workaround, but given that Amarok is unmaintained and has barely been developed since 2021, I think it's time to let it go.

This package needs to be updated as per the new names of KDE packages from ~4 days ago. The current PKGBUILD is preventing my system from upgrading. The following patch fixes this.

@MarsSeed. Thanks for the tips, I'm updating the package now.

MarsSeed commented on 2023-06-16 19:06 (UTC)

Also please add the mandatory fftw dependency (shown here as required).

On a typical Arch based system, I believe it is likely to be already installed. But users can change some packages that eliminate the need for it; hence, it is possible to have adequate multimedia libraries installed but without fftw.

MarsSeed commented on 2023-06-16 18:50 (UTC)

On the other hand, you should add kirigami2 dependency. Needed since Mar 9, 2018.

MarsSeed commented on 2023-06-16 18:25 (UTC)

qca-qt5 is also unneeded since Feb 20, 2018.
