Thank you so much for this package! All the others I've tried are buggy or simply uninstallable.

@theRealPadster The custom flags work pretty well. Thanks you.

I've taken a look at the Spotify package and added support for custom flags @BryanLiang. Let me know if it's not working for you.

I wonder if this package can add the support of custom flags like Spotify does, which can make Spotify run on Wayland mode automatically in any case. I think it is not difficult to implement that.

Thanks for submitting and maintaining this package.

Thanks for the heads-up. I've applied your patch, @Gobidev and it should be working now.

Trying to install this package fails with the following message. cp: cannot stat '/var/tmp/custom_build/spotify-edge/src/spotify-edge/usr/share/doc/spotify-client/changelog.gz': No such file or directory I did some digging, and supposedly upstream there is no directory doc/ in the sources anymore. I did patch the file in manually after which it works as expected

@FabioLolix I did not realize it existed when I created mine. Posted a comment on that package asking if it is intended to always be the absolute latest edge version (so I should delete mine) or if it's fine to have mine as well. I have removed the replace, thanks.

@FabioLolix afaik replaces actually does nothing on AUR packages as no AUR helper is going to query for that and replace a package
