Builds fine for me... how are you building? The videos are optional and not named as your error message shows. Guessing you're using some AUR "helper" :p If so, try with makepkg -srci

Hello) Still having problems with it not killing mpv after moving mouse, unlocking. Multiple instances remain in htop and cause high CPU + battery drain. Changed kill to kill -9 in the script, no change.

snuo - I don't see an ill-effect of adding the --panscan=1.0 on my 16:9 monitor so I believe it's safe to add this.

Thank you for making this port!

BTW, for folks without 16:9 screens who want the videos to fill the screen without letterboxing: adding --panscan=1.0 to the mpv parameters (lines 83 & 87) makes it scale to fill the whole screen.

(Much like this report, I was getting letterboxing on the latest revision; my screen is 16:10 13" MBA -
