to prevent future out of date flags: if you want 2.9.x go to banshee-git.

2.9.x tags from gnome are non usable.

The package gconf-sharp seems to have vanished, so this package is currently useless as I can't install it due to missing dependencies

Don't be silly, just recompile banshee and it works

The latest taglib-sharp-git update brakes Banshee. (When playing a song an error message will appear, and Banshee will become unresponsive.) I suggest you update this, and the mono-upnp-git package to rely on the community taglib-sharp package instead, as with it Banshee still works. (I tested this by force removing taglib-sharp-git, and then installing taglib-sharp.)

@nicman23 in this version (non-git) banshee plays mp3 files after installing gst ugly plugin

nicman23 commented on 2018-01-07 11:39

@mxfm, i since moved to a fork that i somewhat help with (issues, testing pull requests) and is active.

see banshee-git.

@nicman23 - currently banshee indeed compiles, so it was fixed since October (last time when i tried). However, it cannot play mp3 files, probably it needs gst plugins.

Nevertheless, I still believe it support will be dropped in the future because banshee is not maintained. Take look at source code https://github.com/GNOME/banshee/commits/master?after=01c90930b32aff99a4e310bae04d0a61dee23b55+34. It has only translation updates since 2015. Software development advances and this increases burden of keeping old software up-to-date. The more time passes, the more efforts must be undertaken in making it work. This is especially relevant in archlinux where everything is kept up-to-date. Banshee was dropped from repos in late 2016 (https://www.reddit.com/r/archlinux/comments/5dz5t5/banshee_dropped_from_repos_alternatives/), so i will not be surprised than in some point in the future even AUR maintaner will give up supporting it.

dudes, what are you talking about? all packages that banshee depends on compile fine on my machine...
