This information is in the .install, but I'm going to sticky it here.

For Chromecast functionality:

1) Verify avahi and nss-mdns are installed.

2) Append "mdns4" to the end of the "hosts" line in /etc/nsswitch.conf.

3) Enable and start both avahi-daemon.service and avahi-daemon.socket.

If this still doesn't work, check your hosts line in /etc/nsswitch.conf. Mine looked like the following:

hosts: files mymachines resolve [!UNAVAIL=return] dns myhostname mdns4

So I changed it to the following:

hosts: files mymachines resolve dns myhostname mdns4

This fixed the problem for me.

Same for me. Randomly freezes. CPU usage at 100% It's gonna be upstream issue, I found this Should be fixed with next release

This randomly started freezing (sometimes even freezing the whole OS) on 2 Devices. I can reproduce this by opening gpmdp and just randomly clicking a few buttons.

MPRIS next, previous or play/pause works with the following: dbus-send --print-reply /org/mpris/MediaPlayer2 org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.Player.PlayPause

@BrianAllred (and everyone else):

no segfault after the latest update to glibc 2.28-4

BrianAllred commented on 2018-08-16 14:11

@alwyn, I'm not sure, it's been a while since I added wget as a dependency. IIRC, the player was crashing and/or not starting without it.

@coxackie, I just updated that comment. Check Ugzuzg's pinned comment for the easiest workaround. The issue will be resolved completely whenever a new release is made upstream with an updated electron base.

@BrianAllred, re: For the SEGFAULT after updating to glibc 2.28-1, see here:


what exactly are we supposed to see there? Is the issue with segfault going to be resolved in the future?

alwyn commented on 2018-08-15 10:13

Hi, why does this package require wget exactly?

impankratov commented on 2018-08-09 19:23

@BrianAllred can this be updated to include it's own private copy of glibc 2.27 like it was done by maintainer?

Ugzuzg commented on 2018-08-09 10:01

Works with electron from [community]

electron --app=/usr/share/gpmdp/resources/app.asar

For the SEGFAULT after updating to glibc 2.28-1, see Ugzuzg's comment above.
