I can not start the application. Maybe some dependencies are missing? Here is my log:

Could you change the optdepends to:
python2-feedparser: podcasts plugin
webkit2gtk: wikipedia plugin
python2-lxml: LyricsMania plugin
cddb-py: look up CD tags
libkeybinder3: Multimedia keys plugin
python2-beautifulsoup4: Lyrics Wiki plugin
libnotify: Notify plugin
streamripper: Streamripper plugin

Please add http:// before the URL.
Currently the URL is broken for the AUR web interface and I assume the reason is, that http:// is missing

Edit: Oh, and empty variables should be removed from the PKGBUILD, also the prepare() which does nothing

python2-gobject should be a default dep, pulls in pygobject-devel. also gst-plugins-good for playback.
i have cleaned up the pkgbuild a bit, see below. should probably have more optdepends.
