Pipelight not working on Firefox 52:

Mozilla has removed NPAPI support from Firefox 52 which prevents Pipelight and several other plugins from running. As a workaround, you can re-enable NPAPI support by opening about:config page and adding a new boolean value "plugin.load_flash_only". Set its value to "false".

The workaround may not be permanent but it works at the time of writing this reply.

Original question & answer here:

Another issue related to dependencies:

I'm not sure but should this package include dependency of 'unixodbc' package as pipelight looks for a library file included in that package while executing 'pipelight-plugin --system-check' command

Hey @GLTRV, this is not a pipelight issue, but a problem with gpg. See details here

Hi anish, I have this error while trying to install with yaourt:

@Exagone313 that might be true for your use case, not every single that pipelight needs from wine-staging is available in wine.

The package multilib/wine works with pipelight, please update your package to make it depends either multilib/wine, knowing that multilib/wine-staging provides the package wine.

Hi @anish
There is an issue with the validity check of pluginloader-v0.2.8.2.tar.gz:

@Magnetz74 do you have a link to anything I can read ? I spent a lot of time trying to do this before, and signing for aur packages was absolutely not supported at that time

Magnetz74 commented on 2016-01-21 08:39

/usr/bin/gpg --batch --no-default-keyring --keyring "share/sig-pluginloader.gpg" --verify "pluginloader-v0.2.8.tar.gz.sig" "pluginloader-v0.2.8.tar.gz" fails

As someone on the Arch IRC with more knowledge than I said please "include the file as part of the sources and use makepkg's signature scheme"

Thank you for maintaining this!
