I was the owner of gguitar PKGBUILD, but since the project was renamed to wxguitar, i decided to create another PKGBUILD. Could someone with sufficient rights could delete gguitar from AUR?
Hi, I noticed that this package requires wxgtk to be compiled with --enable-mediactrl. I also know of an app I'd like to put on AUR which suffers from the same problem. Do you think we should request that wxgtk gets compiled with --enable-mediactrl by default? The problem with this is that it adds a dependency on gstreamer.
This was requested and basically rejected because of the gnome dependency that gstreamer would bring: http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/11756
Feel free to re-open it though. Specify what packages in repos or AUR need that feature. If it's used by a lot of apps and users want this, I could reconsider.
I don't like gnome dependencies either. As far as I've seen in the tracker and in my previous build gconf would be that dependency. For the sake of this experiment I tried to compile it without gconf installed and it worked but mediactrl wasn't compiled then. I don't see gstreamer bringing in any gnome dependency by itself. gconf isn't the worst gnome dependency there is but oh well. The specific app I planned to package doesn't compile through with mediactrl enabled either which I reported two versions ago, so I stopped caring. I won't open that bug again now. Serious audio apps use something else anyway.
Sorry for the trouble. Philipp
