Hi! There's a duplicate launcher in this package: the player tar file contains plexmediaplayer.desktop, that has the extra launcher options for full-screen and tv while it forces the arguments --tv and --fullscreen at launch, and this repository adds the plex-media-player.desktop which just launches the executable.

Is it possible to merge the two into just one? Maybe without the forced arguments as it's possible to configure that behaviour from the application. I can try to come up with a patch if needed.

Yeah sorry, clean build fixed it. Thank you!

First try to build failed for me too... I got to delete cache files from temp folder and do a clean build. That was the fix. @BrunkBeard - did you do a clean build?

Is it still a problem? I updated the sha512sums and it works for me on a clean checkout of the package repo. If that doesn't work, then I have no idea what's going on.

Has anyone figured out how to fix that error?

@degeberg Can you add -DLINUX_X11POWER=on to the cmake command? That would stop screensaver from activating during video. (

I don't why it sometimes fails when using an AUR helper that has old versions cached. It works fine when using "makepkg" even if old files are present, so I suspect it's a bug in the AUR helper. I don't know if anyone has ever tried submitting a bug report to whatever AUR helpers they're using.

As for downloading the sha1 file, I suppose it's not really necessary. The Plex build script will download the file if it doesn't exist, but because I don't want any downloading to happen during the build process I just added it as a source. In principle, it could just as well be generated by the PKGBUILD script, but it shouldn't make any difference.
