0.5-4 fixes the syntax error in the install script.

As for the autoload-or-not discussion, there's plenty of plugin packages in the repos that are automatically loaded once installed (e.g. all the vim-* packages), because the respective applications look for plugins in /usr. mpv does it the other way with /etc. So it's not as clear-cut as in the case of systemd services, which are never auto-enabled (except for systemd's own units).

I think at this point all arguments have been exchanged, and I'm not seeing myself changing my mind yet again soon. You can always edit the install file before building if you really disagree with this behavior.

You know you can directly run this command "sudo ln /usr/lib/mpv/ /etc/mpv/scripts/" in the PKGBUILD so that users don't have to do it themselves afterwards?

Surely the post-install instructions wouldn't be needed if we used a pacman hook or directly installed the .so in the /etc/mpv/scripts directory.

Why aren't we doing that?

After installing this, run: sudo ln /usr/lib/mpv/ /etc/mpv/scripts/

Installing the .so into /etc/mpv/scripts/ will make mpv auto load the script.

Thanks, this script is very useful.

Thank you, sir!

I already did when it was flagged, but I apparently forgot to push. Should be updated now.

ainola commented on 2018-09-01 23:12

Friendly poke: Will you be kind enough to update this?

FichteFoll commented on 2018-04-16 11:33

You should add a description.

Oh, thank you so much, I didn't notice post-install instructions. Yes, it works!
