Isn't this illegal?

@polyzen Thanks. Guess I'll go back to blockify, as it always mutes all ads for me. The only bug I have with blockify is that sometimes it also mutes actual songs, but that rarely happens.

Just trying this and it doesn't mute skip-able ads at all. Is this intended or a bug?

Shouldn't this script be using "${pkgname%-git}" instead of "${pkgname%-*}", for clarity? I'm not as experienced with bash, and it took me a question to the #bash irc to understand what you were doing. They suggested the change.

polyzen commented on 2016-12-06 23:45 (UTC)

Toggling play/pause seems to be the workaround for both scripts. Tried the commit before recent upstream changes, seems to work the same: source=("git+$url.git#commit=1fa0ff969ec15d9649600e52114160cb4841f8c9") If you think it's an issue related to packaging changes I've made, you could try this: Hard to test as it takes so long to get an ad v_v.

polyzen, I run and continue to receive ads. The updates before my comment simply mishandled the hand-off between Quod Libet, my local music player, and Spotify resulting in a local track playing during an ad, ending, but without resuming in Spotify using the "continuous" mode of spotify-adkiller. Now, the latest Spotify simply plays the ad without any interruption.

taohansen, I appear to only have issues with, can you confirm?

polyzen commented on 2016-11-27 19:48 (UTC) (edited on 2016-12-06 21:08 (UTC) by polyzen) Also, probably due to recent upstream changes.

This no longer blocks ads in Spotify.

Please, add "spotify" as dependency.

@blumsicle: I updated the PKGBUILD. :)

blumsicle commented on 2016-01-22 00:24 (UTC)

Everything works great...however I had to install 'xdotool' in order for the to remain open after running. If you'll notice in the README (under Dependencies) at that 'xdotool' is now a runtime dependency. If you can please change the PKGBUILD from: depends=("xorg-xprop" "libpulse" "libnotify" "pulseaudio") to: depends=("xorg-xprop" "libpulse" "libnotify" "pulseaudio" "xdotool") Thanks!

@SibrenVasse Funny, it works when I click the link in firefox, lol I just built the package, too. Should I remove my comments?

SibrenVasse commented on 2015-10-22 10:45 (UTC)

@tomjtoth: that looks like is unreachable for you. The package builds fine for me.

Yeah, me too. So far, blockify-git seems to work for me. (blockify>2.0.0 should support the new client, according to the github page...)

Louis commented on 2015-10-06 22:30 (UTC)

Am I the only one who have unmuted commercials after updating to spotify v. from AUR?

Add Pulseaudio as a dependency, it doesn't work without it.
