If you face this:
==> Verifying source file signatures with gpg...
quodlibet-x.y.z.tar.gz ... FAILED (unknown public key 5A62D0CAB6264964)
==> ERROR: One or more PGP signatures could not be verified!
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build exfalso.

Please read this:

Or use the following to build (but doing so means reduced security, you should only do that if you know what you’re doing):
makepkg -s --skippgpcheck

No. The community/quodlibet package consist of the quodlibet audio player, and the exfalso audio tagger (which are two separate programs).

This package only contains the audio tagging program.

Isn't this the same as quodlibet in the community repo?

Thank you for the fix. Better health for you, rscholer.

Thanks, an interesting error that existed for years but was only catched by the new checks in pacman 5.2. Fixed and pushed.

I'm currently in a hospital without access to my laptop. I should be able to fix this around the beginning/middle of December.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

The program doesn't launch without the "optional" dependency python-dbus.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/quodlibet/qltk/", line 23, in init
bus = dbus.Bus(dbus.Bus.TYPE_SESSION)
AttributeError: module 'dbus' has no attribute 'Bus'

ArchangeGabriel: Aaaargh! I got mixed-up with another plugin. I readded the "MusicBrainz Lookup" plugin and corresponding optdepends, also the "covers" package is now removed, as well as two other overlooked plugins.

I hope there wasn't another mix-up.

Archange commented on 2017-05-28 19:22

I think MusicBrainz will require the corresponding python-package. ;)

Plugins are included again as of 3.9.0-2.

Excluded plugins fall in at least one of the following categories:
- Plugins not shown in Ex Falso's plugin manager.
- Plugins depending on Quod Libet's database or on built-in playback functionality.
- Plugins that have no functionality.

Please leave a comment if you encounter issues or want to argue for the inclusion/exclusion of a plugin.
