teohhanhui: Thanks for pointing that out. I've added a patch.

Unfortunately the ~/.config/gnome-mpv directory has 600 permissions instead of 755 as it should be.

Edit: It's already fixed in

I reckon that this package should eventually replace GNOME MPlayer.

@TingPing: I'm sold! I'll happily switch away from autotools.

TingPing commented on 2017-06-14 02:44

btw see also `gnome-mpv-git` which uses meson already.

Well Meson is just much faster and more simple. For some numbers gnome-mpv build time: Meson - 1 second, AutoTools (with ./ - 12 seconds.

As for preferred build tool, gnome-mpv is actually a very small codebase and I personally maintain the Meson build files. I would not expect many issues and I will be responsive in fixing them.

TingPing: I considered moving to meson but I abstained; the Github page made it sound like Meson was not the preferred build tool for now.

As I believe you're involved with upstream, would there be a benefit to switching to Meson right now?

I'll remove the intltool dep, thanks for that.

TingPing commented on 2017-06-14 02:16

intltool can be dropped as a build dep. Also might be worth moving to Meson now (need this patch though:

@bsdson: It looks like you don't have binutils installed on your system. Do you have all the necessary base-devel packages installed?

bsdson commented on 2017-06-14 02:00

thanks @ainola!
it works after installing binutils.
