@PhotonX Do you mean gstreamer0.10 or gst?

Gstreamer backend works for me without perl-glib-object-introspection being installed, I think, it can be removed from optdepends.

@goetzc Take a look at these GMB bbs topics:

The standard gmusicbrowser includes two Shimmer layouts, Desktop and Netbook, is this not the same offered by this package?

I'm unflagging the package because, even if a new version of gmusicbrowser was released, the Shimmer team has not updated its version yet (
Feel free to flag the package again if the Shimmer version comes out and I miss it.
Thank you.

Hello, if you are having problems with gmusicbrowser crashing at startup, please see this thread:

hansi commented on 2015-03-13 12:14


Sorry but this was because I was trying to build (and apply your patch to) the latest GMB from the -git repository, because it contains the last fixes to gain support of gstreamer-1.x and these modifications are needed to suppress the errors like "Playing error : Resource not found at" appeared with a full up-to-date system.
So in fact you're right, your package build correctly but GMB is not the last version this way...
Anyway, I applyied Shimmer modifications by hand and now everything is working great, and no more gstreamer related errors (and stopping playback).

@hansi: Hello, I can't find any version of gmusicbrowser-shimmer newer than this one, can you please provide a reference?
About the problem you are having with the patch, I tried to build the package on my system and it works just fine. Also, this line
==> Lancement de build()...
is strange since there isn't any build() function in my PKGBUILD. Are you sure you are building my package without any modification?

It seems out of date, main version includes support for gstreamer-1.x that removes all of the annoying Gstreamer errors "Playing error : Resource not found at..."
Problem, the patch do not apply anymore..:
