User ZeroDot1 proposed himself to maintain this AUR package but he has some issues porting the package to a cmake build. See Any help would be very appreciated...

Thank you, I can test the new beta version. The Appimage works. Here is the output of the terminal.

Thanks for the good software, very good work :)

@ZeroDot1 Thank you for the reminder. I am very sorry I forget.

In the future (MellowPlayer 3) I will provide an AppImage (

I will probably orphan this package unless there are serious reasons not to use the AppImage (btw you can try a pre-beta version here: - this is a temporary link that will be removed in a few days. I personally already use it at work on CentOS).

ZeroDot1 commented on 2017-06-05 20:22

Please update PKGBUILD to v2.2.4


Thanks for the good software, very good work :)

ColinDuquesnoy commented on 2017-02-11 10:18

Yes, the project has moved to gitlab. Version 3.0 is in active development there. I'll update PKGBUILD to use the gitlab upstream for v3.0.

-> In the end the project has moved back to github, gitlab being too unstable... :-/

nicholma commented on 2017-02-10 23:09

Has the project moved to gitlab?

ColinDuquesnoy commented on 2016-11-11 10:14

@opotonil You're right. I've updated the package. Thank you!

opotonil commented on 2016-11-08 11:31

"chromium-pepper-flash-standalone" can be now *"pepper-flash"?


ColinDuquesnoy commented on 2016-06-05 14:22

@vigilian I can reproduce, the issue is in the snorenotify package. I've reported it to the snorenotify maintainer. In the meantime, just edit PKGBUILD and remove the last line of the package function (" mv "${pkgdir}"/usr/mkspecs "${pkgdir}"/usr/lib/qt").

ColinDuquesnoy commented on 2016-05-27 12:09

Snorenotify is a dependency of mellowplayer 2, it cannot be removed. You need to report this to the snorenotify package maintainer. But AFAIK snorenotify 0.7.0 builds fine with Qt 5.6, what errors do you have?
