Ok I added mpd to the After section of systemd service. Added sha256sum for source

It might be desirable to start the upmpdcli service after mpd:

sed -i '/^After/ s/$/ mpd.service/' "${pkgdir}"/usr/lib/systemd/system/upmpdcli.service

Also.... Here is the sc2mpd PKGBUILD for upmpdcli to enable the Linn Kazoo app to control the songcast open home servers...

One interesting tidbit is the build script downloads the OpenHome libraries using a certain git-commit and the are only needed for building. This feels like it's side-stepping checksums, so i'm not sure what the best approach really is here.. If anyone has better PKGBUILD kung-fu than I might know how to put those in there own unique package.

I had some missing dependencies so i tweaked the PKGBUILD as follows:

depends=('python' 'libmpdclient' 'libupnpp>=0.17.0' 'libmicrohttpd' 'jsoncpp')

makedepends=('python-setuptools' 'libmpdclient' 'libupnpp>=0.17.0' 'libmicrohttpd' 'jsoncpp' 'python-requests' 'recoll' 'python-bottle' 'python-mutagen' 'mutagen' 'aspell-en' 'id3lib' 'python-waitress' 'sqlite')

optdepends=('python2: OpenHome Radio Service' 'python-requests: enable search' 'recoll: enable search' 'python-bottle: enable uprcl media server' 'python-mutagen: enable uprcl media server' 'mutagen: enable uprcl media server' 'aspell-en' 'id3lib' 'python-waitress: enable uprcl media server' 'sqlite')

Also there were some permissions issues, so i added sys users.d and tmpfiles.d

sysusers.d: u upmpdcli - - m upmpdcli audio

tmpfiles.d: d /run/upmpdcli 0755 upmpdcli upmpdcli d /var/cache/upmpdcli 0755 upmpdcli upmpdcli

and of course within the package() group: install -Dm644 ../../tmpfiles.d "${pkgdir}"/usr/lib/tmpfiles.d/upmpdcli.conf install -Dm644 ../../sysusers.d "${pkgdir}"/usr/lib/sysusers.d/upmpdcli.conf

My idea is that the original systemd service should be removed. Inside the file from original developer is written: "For some reason, the first start of libupnp fails. Probably this should be started later in the start sequence, but I don't know how. Retry a bit later. “

I always prefer systemd user services, when is possible. This would get rid of special users like “upmpdcli” that is complicating things, but this is my personal opinion.

I have not checked all the dependencies, I hope that are no more than necessary but… there is a problem: if I want to install upmpdcli in a headless system without graphical Desktop, recoll and other is a little too much… Maybe a upmdcli-lite?

I did another version there : I used systemd-tmp files and sysusers, which I think is the way to go these days (not sure though).

/usr/share/upmpdcli should be chowned to upmpdcli:upmpdcli (see ).

Also, I added gpg signature checking for the source code (key should be added beforehand with gpg --recv-key F8E3347256922A8AE767605B7808CE96D38B9201).

I can't get qobuz to work though.

Added user systemd service, since the one with user upmpdcli was not working correctly. Fixed permissions on upmpdcli.conf Added missing dependency chmlib

Tested and compiled fine in aarch64, armv7h. x86_64

Just updated. Not sure about Maintainers... Tested in a headless installation with MPD and is working fine.

it compiles, but with libupnp 0.17 upmpdcli 1.2.15-2 does not work. I reload 0.16.1 and everything is fine. (on github is a package Archphile - it's for arm, but the PKGBUILD could work for other arch, it uses the newest versions, I did not try it) Thanks for your support!

phgGrue: Could you be more specific? Do you mean it doesn't compile? On my machine, it compiles and runs fine with libupnpp 0.17. The new PKGBUILD is ready. I'm testing it and will upload it very soon if it is satisfactory.
