Hello, I’m the creator of loudgain. Unfortunately, I haven’t had any time for the last years to maintain it. It’s not really abandoned—let’s hope I will find time to incorporate all the valued feedback & changes into my repo soon!

I feel loudgain is still a valuable tool for many of us, so in the meantime, let me express my heartfelt thanks to everybody here that helped and helps to keep the AUR version running! I will certainly come back to it.

Thanks again! Moonbase59

There is a bug in this version which produces segmentation faults with certain file formats, see this Github Issue. Unfortunately, this is not fixed upstream and probably will not be, since loudgain seems to be abandoned. However, there is this patch, which completely fixes the issue.

@blubbblubb: Could you please include the patch in the PKGBUILD? I have already tested it on my system, it compiles fine.

Note: The patch from the Github Issue doesn't work anymore, since the line numbers have changed. You have to use the one I posted above.

sounds good to me, just pushed the change. (Sorry for the lateish response, i did not have access to a computer for a while ;) )

Could you, please, change the source to


so that the source has the proper name when saved in the source directory. The current v0.6.8.tar.gz not just cryptic, but could collide with other (poorly named) sources. I usually keep my sources around, so I am keen to keep my source directory in order.

No other changes needed. It would work like before.

Thx a lot!
