I am unable to execute this AUR package (kawaii-player). Error messages:

I am also unable to build kawaii-player-git. Error messages:

if a package doesn't build or run, it shouldn't exist. having intentionally broken packages defeats the entire purpose of packaging.

To that effect, packages both in the repos and AUR regularly add in and backport patches to ensure that the resulting package builds and runs properly

@eclairevoyant When they release a stable version containing this version, I will update the package. For now use the version, which should have this fix.

eclairevoyant commented on 2023-05-27 00:12 (UTC) (edited on 2023-05-27 00:12 (UTC) by eclairevoyant)

Needs to backport this patch: otherwise it doesn't run

FYI using kawaii-player-git may be better for now, see

Also @clebermatheus python-setuptools should be in the makedepends not the depends

Technetium1 commented on 2022-07-02 05:57 (UTC)

Requires python-setuptools to build in clean chroot

@Singularity I'm not sure if Kawaii Player supports playing media files directly from the terminal like mpv does, you should try asking at the developer's GitHub page.

Singularity commented on 2019-07-11 00:46 (UTC)

I must be doing something wrong, I can't figure out how to just start playing a video. At least it's not "kawaii-player video-file.mp4"
