This information is in the .install, but I'm going to sticky it here.

For Chromecast functionality:

1) Verify avahi and nss-mdns are installed.

2) Append "mdns4" to the end of the "hosts" line in /etc/nsswitch.conf.

3) Enable and start both avahi-daemon.service and avahi-daemon.socket.

If this still doesn't work, check your hosts line in /etc/nsswitch.conf. Mine looked like the following:

hosts: files mymachines resolve [!UNAVAIL=return] dns myhostname mdns4

So I changed it to the following:

hosts: files mymachines resolve dns myhostname mdns4

This fixed the problem for me.

@beetix Did it fail to start, or just log an error in the console? This may be related to the setting in GPMDP about keeping the computer from sleeping. If it just logged it in the console, I'll add it as optional.

Hi, isn't libxss missing in the dependencies ? I had a "libXss.so.1: cannot open shared object file" error when launching it before installing libxss package. Appart from this it's great ! Thanks

Is MDNS traffic (UDP port 5353) allowed through your firewall?

Chromecast still doesn't work for me. Icon is not shown here. Maybe this is also related to FS#51704. Both versions of nsswitch.conf line don't work here with or without systemd-resolved running.

1) I'm not sure. I don't get the Chromecast icon on my Arch system either, but I do on Windows. I'll investigate this.

2) Because it's much faster to install and update this way. I'm unfamiliar with NodeJS development, so I don't know if it's a consequence of being a Node app or if it's just this app itself, but compilation takes a while, even on my i7-4770k. Also, I believe there are API keys baked into the static builds for last.fm integration.

There is gpmdp-git if you'd rather build from source code, though.

1) Any idea how to get Chromecast devices shown in gpmdp? Avahi is running, nss-mdns is configured and avahi-browse _googlecast._tcp shows my devices. The Chromecast icon isn't displayed on two of my systems.

2) Why to you use a static build from a deb package, why don't you build using the source?

BrianAllred commented on 2016-12-12 03:09

I ran the .deb through debtap again and found avahi was added as a dependency. I'm pretty sure it's only needed if you enable the playback API, so I made it optional.

gpmdp 4.0.2-1

Working like a charm! Haven't had any problems yet.

Hi, since 2 or 3 months I've kernel panics after a while when I'm running VirtualBox (Windows guests) and gpmdp (this package). It seems random, but I think that this is the scenario. At the beginning I though it's an issue with my SSD disk (I've some filesystem corruption), but at least, I couldn't reproduce it with a normal use (without VBox which I use for working purposes). Only when I'm running VBox and music, after some time: panic.
Anybody can confirm this? If I play Google Music from Chrome when I'm running VBox panic doesn't happen.
I'm a bit confused about this. I was looking into main project github, but there isn't any report about panics.
Any ideas? Thank you.
