I had to install python-gobject to make this work. Maybe upstream switched from gobject2 to gobject or someting? (I did not try without python-gobject2)

The error I got without python-gobject installed:

$ mpDris2
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/mpDris2", line 56, in <module>
    gi.require_version('Notify', '0.7')
AttributeError: module 'gi' has no attribute 'require_version'

aah, you can't sudo a --user service!

I'm getting this atm:

sudo systemctl --user start mpDris2.service
Failed to connect to bus: No such file or directory

Any ideas?

thanks @t-8ch! I could do that. It seems like a low maintainance package anyway.

Hi all, sorry for letting this rot away. I fixed the reported bugs. To be honest, I am not using this project anymore. So if someone wants to take over this package, let me know.

@grawity thanks! This fixed it, except that the cover in the notification is very small

@t-8ch this should also be fixed in the optdeps

Make sure you have python-mutagen (the Python3 version) installed. If that still doesn't work, get the --debug output.

@grawity: You are right notifications are working. Maybe the optdep should be removed then?

But displaying covers are not working at the moment

It was a legacy package that was superseded by GObject-based bindings, so it probably was never ported to Py3 at all.

You don't need that package anyway, mpDris2 will access the library through GI instead. Look for Initializing GObject.Notify in the mpdris debug logs.

There is no python-notify package. Neither in the AUR nor in the official repos.
