@GarthPS: I created an upstream issue a few days ago.

hello, here I've got after updating the package :

    :~$ cast_control 
    Traceback (most recent call last):

@yochananmarqos I will wait :) thank you for advices!

@GarthPS: First of all, AUR helpers are not officially supported and one should never run them with sudo.

Second, this package requires a specific version of python-pychromecast for a reason and will not work with anything newer. You need install a specific version by checking out the commit manually, an AUR helper cannot be used.

Either way, I doubt this will work until the developer updates it.

Hello, can't install it today (0.11.8.post0-3)

PSA: 0.14.0 requires Python 3.12. Please do not flag this package out of date until we have it.

@RRRadek: This hasn't worked in quite some time.

Please don't flag packages out of date unless there is a new upstream release.

@yochananmarqos I have a error

ValueError: invalid pyproject.toml config: `project.license`.
configuration error: `project.license` must be valid exactly by one definition (2 matches found):

    - keys:
        'file': {type: string}
      required: ['file']

        'text': {type: string}
      required: ['text']

ERROR Backend subprocess exited when trying to invoke get_requires_for_build_wheel
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Can You fix it?

@drugo: Of course python-pychromecast6 provides and conflicts with python-pychromecast, they're the same package at different versions. That's not related to this package.

This package only works with python-pychromecast >=9.2.0,<9.3.0. I use 9.2.1.

Please do not flag packages out of date unless there is a new upstream release.
