You need to apply that one patch to make it run with recent qt release:

ColinDuquesnoy commented on 2017-12-01 16:47

Yes, Qt has a release cycle of approximatively 6 month and Qt 5.10 is about to be released. So Qt 5.11 will be release around June 2018. The bug might not even be fixed in that version, that depends on how they prioritize their issues... You can track (and vote) the bug here:

But you won't have to wait 6 months, MellowPlayer 3.2 should be released by the end of December and I'll ask @ZeroDot1 to patch the desktop file.

@ColinDuquesnoy okey, thanks, I will wait there fore, but only one question..
for june 2018 seirously?! xD there is more half a year for this!!

Just to clarify:

- there is a workaround with version 3.1 if you don't need widevine DRM in chromium: sudo mv /usr/lib/chromium/ /usr/lib/chromium/
- with the upcoming version 3.2, you'll be able to set the correct path to the widevine plugin with "--ppapi-widevine-path=/usr/lib/qt/plugins/ppapi/" command line option. Packagers should patch the desktop file if needed.
- Qt 5.11 (planned for june 2018) will fix this bug for good

I have not clear if it is needed for me to do a workaround or I can wait until some of you fix it in aur
Thanks by the way beacuse I use deezer too and spotify has a native app in Linux that isn't a bad option( only lose of minimize to try)
