@gamezelda: /usr/bin/youtube-dl-gui has no DOS/Windows line feeds. You could try a clean reinstall of the package.

Seems like the repo has been commited using Windows line feeds:

[zealcharm@PC ~]$ youtube-dl-gui
/usr/bin/env: ‘python2\r’: No such file or directory

As a fix, use dos2unix to fix the script. Only required once:

[zealcharm@PC ~]# sudo dos2unix /usr/bin/youtube-dl-gui
dos2unix: converting file /usr/bin/youtube-dl-gui to Unix format...

PKGBUILD can be named anything
This patch will only patch it for archlinux systems
till it is fixed upstream :)

@B4SH-B00STER: Thanks. Note: your PKGBUILD has another package name.
I can include the "license install" part the PKGBUILD file.

I'm not sure I should include the "youtube-dl-gui.patch" file. This should be "fixed" upstream, I think, so it will work on any Linux distro and maybe on other operating systems.

re-done PKGBUILD and patched the source to use youtube-dl from Community repo

@swyter: Should be fixed now.

Can you use `Icon=youtube-dl-gui` as the icon so that it picks the better variant? The 48px version for everything makes it look needlessly ugly in things like Gnome.

Here's a patch against the current PKGBUILD:

@parafa45: Fixed (added a fallback application icon as a more stable patch). Created an upstream issue

@DaveCode: youtube-dl is now an optional dependency.
