If you're getting the error mentioned by xrayfur below, just comment or delete the last two lines of the pkgver() function:

pkgver() {
  cd ${_gitname:-$pkgname}
  git describe --long --tags 2>/dev/null | sed 's/[^[:digit:]]*\(.\+\)-\([[:digit:]]\+\)-g\([[:xdigit:]]\{7\}\)/\1.r\2.g\3/;t;q1'
  [ ${PIPESTATUS[0]} -ne 0 ] && \
printf "r%s.%s" "$(git rev-list --count HEAD)" "$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"


pkgver() {
  cd ${_gitname:-$pkgname}
  git describe --long --tags 2>/dev/null | sed 's/[^[:digit:]]*\(.\+\)-\([[:digit:]]\+\)-g\([[:xdigit:]]\{7\}\)/\1.r\2.g\3/;t;q1'

With the recent update, the extension is compatible to the current shell version again. However, the author recommends to check out his leaner extension mpris-indicator-button, which has less features but is more actively maintained. I also packaged it here:

If You can't build this package just remove this part from PKGBUILD

pkgver() { cd ${_gitname:-$pkgname} git describe --long --tags 2>/dev/null | sed 's/[^[:digit:]]*(.+)-([[:digit:]]+)-g([[:xdigit:]]{7})/\1.r\2.g\3/;t;q1' [ ${PIPESTATUS[0]} -ne 0 ] && \ printf "r%s.%s" "$(git rev-list --count HEAD)" "$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)" }

Lines 28-33

and try to run makepkg and then pacman -U to install it.

can you please update the package?

Can you update this to allow Gnome 3.28? I've been running it without issues, but the PKGBUILD requires gnome-shell<3.27

The PKGBUILD was ported to the new build pipeline. Many thanks for all who provided instructions and patches here and on GitHub. With the fix, a bunch of new versions come rolling towards you.

@XZS please use my linked PKGBUILD to update this package, thanks.

Updated PKGFILE:

For those of you who don't have time to help fix PKGBUILD with new build system, you can revert to release 2.8 (the last release before the introduction of meson). source+=("${_gitname:=${pkgname%-git}}::${_giturl:-git+$url}#commit=b85e69d")
