lilmike, I made a copy-paste error when I was refactoring the package, removing the exact mechanism that is supposed to support multiple versions. Please try the updated version (0.2.3-3), but also note that there are currently several DBUS-related issues upstream.

Yeah, it seems that each "feature" shares the built directory with each other, so building spotifyd the way it's being done builds them all, but only keeps the last. Not sure how to work around this, but yeah.

I'm not seeming to get the dbus-mpris varient to use that feature. At least I get nothing in the logs about using it, and playerctl -l reports no players.

onlined I added a version to the split that has those flags enabled. However, since those features are experimental (according to upstream) they remain disabled in the default and pulseaudio build. Let me know if this works for you.

Could you add MPRIS supported package?

I have been experimenting with the PKGBUILD. Instead of ignoring openssl, I compiled with an older version of openssl. Also, I need to use openssl-probe to get certificates. This also works with dbus_mpris which requires rust-openssl.

Failed building after openssl updated to 1.1.1, as rust-openssl is too old to build against openssl, and is also too old to use the vendored feature to build openssl through cargo and statically link to it. Also failed building against librespot git HEAD.

Suggested fix to add to PKGBUILD in build() after cd "$srcdir/spotifyd-$pkgver":

rm Cargo.lock
sed -i 's#^rspotify.*#rspotify = { git = "", rev = "b0f8202" }#' Cargo.toml
sed -i '/^[dependencies.librespot]/!{p;d;};n;a rev = "00e8934"' Cargo.toml

@mihalko pkgconf is part of base-devel, so it shouldn't be present in the dependencies. See:

at least compilation of alsa-sys and openssl-sys uses pkg-config, so package pkgconf should be dependency IMO

@NicoHood I've tested running spotifyd-pulseaudio without libpulse installed, and quite predictably it errors out, since it cannot find the dynamic libraries.

It's probably possible to change the binary to dynamically load that library only when needed, but that's not really my forte. If anyone has a suggestion I will look into it.
