Damn this hassle. First I wondered why the domain was down. I ignored it for a few weeks, and returned to the issue now. The domain is still down. And now the explanation.

Luckily, the pipelight author has been kind enough to keep the pipelight code on BitBucket:

The project has been discontinued:

The domain doesn't seem to be active any longer, and thus the package cannot be installed. Just click the link for "pluginloader-v0.2.8.2.tar.gz" under "Sources" above to see.

Thanks for the hint! However, I'm already using firefox-kde-opensuse from AUR. As an alternative solution, I may just create a local & custom firefox package on my computer in which the firefox source has been edited to point to esr release.

to Fincer: you should install firefox-esr-bin from AUR

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.
