ccl2of4: I don't see why we can't make that change here. We're replacing anyway. I'm adding a plexhometheater.desktop file with the change you suggest to the tarball and updating the PKGBUILD. You should make your suggestion to the openpht folks though... it is a good one.

I am using numix-circle-icon-theme, which has an icon for plexhometheater. But I noticed that the plexhometheater.desktop for this package hard codes the icon by doing


instead of


The effect of this is that the default plexhometheater icon is used instead of the one provided by numix-circle-icon-theme. I have modified plexhometheater.desktop on my own installation so that I can use the numix icon.

Is this something that's worth changing, and if so, should it be done here in the PKGBUILD, or should I submit a pull request to the git repo?

Thanks for any advice!

md2prof: ack thanks.

Also, thanks for maintaining this package.

bcc: You have to downgrade those packages to get a successful build. See

There are reports that once built, the packages in question can be installed back up to current with pacman -S package_name

Hope this helps.

Updated PKGBUILD for new upstream release. The package still requires openpht-ffmpeg package (stock arch ffmpeg failed in the same way as the last upstream release), but that package is unchanged. Same story for downgraded gcc-libs, glibc and llvm-libs. Same build error without the downgrade. May run just fine after the build with current packages... see hps's comment below.

I don't have a production PLEX system to test, but it does open for me at least and there are no significant build errors.

Thanks. I made the dependencies change, I will work on the upgrade and post in the next few days.

Thanks for maintaining this!

Upstream released

also, I suggest moving gcc-libs<=5.3.0 and llvm-libs<=3.7.1 to makedepends.
Running works fine for me with gcc-libs 6.1.1 and llvm-libs 3.8.0

BTW - OpenPHT 1.6 will not build with the gcc 6.1.1 and libs, so the dependencies for prior versions stay. I did try, but got the same build errors from algobase.
