@Syyn: I'll update the package when a _stable_ version will be released. I know 4.0.0 beta2 is here, but it remains a beta, and some functionalities are missing or buggy ATM in beta2. Please wait for 4.0.0 final.

I've modified package python2-mmkeys, now you can use plugin XKeys (since python2-mmkeys-
You can add it as optionnal dependency if you wish.

The package python2-imaging (which is listed as an optdep) no longer exists. It should be changed to python2-pillow which provides both python-imaging and python2-imaging.

Tellendil commented on 2014-03-07 09:42

Oups, sorry, I miscklicked and flagged the pacakage out of date, which is not the case, my appologies

Chazza commented on 2013-12-16 17:39

This package is out of date. As of 26 Oct 2013 Exaile is at version 3.3.2

Anonymous comment on 2013-07-19 23:09

The comment from 2012-09-14 is still relevant, despite the package having been updated since then. Without gstreamer0.10-base-plugins you will get:

** Message: pygobject_register_sinkfunc is deprecated (GstObject)

on the terminal, and then

Playback error encountered: playsink0

in the application. (Hopefully this info will help with the Google.)

beitme commented on 2013-05-30 14:31

The xkeys plugin cannot be enabled. Says is missing. I installed the package "python2-mmkeys." Still doesn't work.

beitme commented on 2013-05-30 14:18

The source file is no longer available.

Det commented on 2013-03-16 11:08

Why isn't 'python2-beautifulsoup3' an optional dependency for the "Lyrics Wiki" plugin?

Jristz commented on 2013-03-16 02:03

dbus-python not exist as dependenci <- packer

grawity commented on 2013-01-05 16:51

makepkg warns that "$pkgdir/usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.exaile.Exaile.service" is referencing files in my $pkgdir:


Needs a sed -i "s|Exec=$pkgdir/*|Exec=/|"

Unlisted dependency, help2man.

atommixz commented on 2012-09-14 10:33

This is don't install 'gstreamer0.10-base-plugins' by default. And mp3 don't plaing. And 'gstreamer0.10-base-plugins' not in Optional Dependens

Broken for me since some recent upgrade, too:

File "/usr/local/lib/exaile/", line 57, in main

Any help? please!!!!
