@quequotion Fair enough, the upstream is also dead at this point. But it does do what it was intended at least for stereo outputs even in 2022.

If there's an updated fork that you know of, I'll be glad to take a look and consider building from that instead.

I haven't tried it lately, but I doubt anything has changed.

It's never had trouble with a typical stereo (two speakers--left and right, or headphones) setup apparently.

What it can't seem to handle is the a52 surround sound plugin. ie, users with digital surround setups are not likely to find it usable.

Builds and runs fine on my system, and I'm even using pipewire-pulse not pulseaudio itself.

Upstream hasn't been updated in years, I think it's fair to call this package dead

It's not just not showing, but freezes immediately when it opens.

Try opening it while audio is playing: it should show levels, but stuck wherever they were at that moment.

I don't think the original maintainer (Lennart Pottering) is still working on it, and I don't know how to get word to him that it's broken.

There's a gtk3 port, itself untouched for seven years, which I have just packaged for the AUR, but it has the same problem.

I'll take a look, but I don't have any idea what's going wrong.

Stopped working. Builds fine, starts also, doesn't show anything on bars anymore.

@veyen No need to edit upstream source, just change the PKGBUILD: CXXFLAGS="$CXXFLAGS -std=c++11" ./configure --prefix=/usr See for explanation in a similar issue.

Error in compiling (due to new C++ update?): note: C++11 ‘noexcept’ only available with -std=c++11 or -std=gnu++11 error: ‘noexcept’ does not name a type error: expected initializer before ‘noexcept’ etc. etc. Fix by adding compile flag -std=c++11 in the file.

@cgtx: fixed, thanks.

Since the source is git protocol, you need to put git in the makedepends. Otherwise, this package fails to build in a clean chroot.
