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

@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.
