These packages aren't in the regular archives. You need to install them (manually) from AUR before building pacpl.

In order to install this package I had to:

  • change PKGBUILD

    line 46:


    cp -p ChangeLog.txt ChangeLog


    cp -p ChangeLog ChangeLog.txt

Don't know why this step is even necessary, but that's a different issue.

  • downgrade my automake from 1.16.2-1 to 1.15-2

The 1-15 version is somehow embedded in aclocal.m4:

# ----------------------------
# Automake X.Y traces this macro to ensure aclocal.m4 has been
# generated from the m4 files accompanying Automake X.Y.
# (This private macro should not be called outside this file.)
dnl Some users find AM_AUTOMAKE_VERSION and mistake it for a way to
dnl require some minimum version.  Point them to the right macro.
m4_if([$1], [1.15], [],
      [AC_FATAL([Do not call $0, use AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE([$1]).])])dnl

and I didn't know how to fix it.

  • to run this package, I had to install perl-string-shellquote

@kinoe - Sorry, I don't have time to look at this right now. I will see if someone else can maintain the package.

installation successful but had to move /usr/etc/pacpl to /etc/pacpl manually and softlink the pacpl.desktop to kservices5

successfully ran 'pacpl xyz.mp3 --to ogg' via commandline

but via Dolphin servicemenu (rightclicking) i got this error in journalctl:

kwin_x11[756]: qt.qpa.xcb: QXcbConnection: XCB error: 3 (BadWindow), sequence: 15671, resource id: 75497590, major code: 18 (ChangeProperty), minor code: 0

kwin_x11[756]: qt.qpa.xcb: QXcbConnection: XCB error: 3 (BadWindow), sequence: 15734, resource id: 75497591, major code: 18 (ChangeProperty), minor code: 0

So it seems that it's got to do with x11 ?!

no other servicemenu here produces this error, installed Perl version 5.28.0-1

excerpt of pacpl.conf:

KDIALOG options for Dolphin & Konqueror

Output directory

1: prompt

0: use input file directory KDE_DIR = 1

Encoder options

1: prompt

0: use default encoder options
