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.

Thanks dampkwab and ruscur for your inputs. That saved me so much time. For new users who use yay, use yay -S --editmenu gpmdp to edit the PKGBUILD before install to make changes to the source and md5sum mentioned by the above users.

Thanks dampkwab, that works.

md5sum for the .deb you linked is c737e4b70f608381b6b54baa83d03b97

There seems to be some info on the segfault problem in this github issue upstream:

https://github.com/MarshallOfSound/Google-Play-Music-Desktop-Player-UNOFFICIAL-/issues/3498

The problem was apparently fixed in master months ago but they haven't got around to releasing it yet :|

.

I've temporarily worked around it by rebuilding the package using this source:

https://2974-40008106-gh.circle-artifacts.com/0/home/circleci/project/dist/installers/debian/google-play-music-desktop-player_4.6.1_amd64.deb

Thanks to simoniz0r on github for digging that one up!

gpmdp stopped working today

[ruslan@laptop gpmdp]$ gpmdp Segmentation fault (core dumped)

I second this @ModYokosuka, its crashing for me with the same message. Interestingly though, it seems on a fresh install of Arch it opens just fine.

Current version is failing with a segfault.

On Budgie, my icon isn't broken with or without the 'env' argument. Considering this issue affects multiple DEs (according to the Github issue) and adding the required line doesn't break Budgie, I'll add it in for now.

I'll keep an eye on that issue though, it seems like an upstream bug to me.

Hello, With latest release of Gnome DE we have problems with usage of tray icons because during enabling of different extensions we have same problem ~70% CPU usage, as workaround many suggests switching to Ubuntu Appindicator solution, and I want to say that Appindicator solution works fine.

Main problem with gpmdp application is that it is not showing icon in the tray (Appindicator) if there are no environment variable XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=Unity, can you please change content of file gpmdp.desktop and change Exec=gpmdp %U to Exec=env XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=Unity gpmdp %U, this should fix issue for this application, I think so because it works when I'm starting application from terminal using command env XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=Unity gpmdp.

But, unfortunately, I'm not sure that this will not affects other DEs.

Same for me. Randomly freezes. CPU usage at 100% It's gonna be upstream issue, I found this https://github.com/MarshallOfSound/Google-Play-Music-Desktop-Player-UNOFFICIAL-/issues/3483 Should be fixed with next release https://github.com/MarshallOfSound/Google-Play-Music-Desktop-Player-UNOFFICIAL-/issues/3483#issuecomment-462350841
