Sorry, I should have looked more closely … dependencies added back.

@buzo, not sure why, but someone might need it... But as I indicated, and @eMyller already confirmed, getting rid of gconf is not possible at this point for the binary provided by If re-built from sources without gconf it does work though, which confirms the SW itself doesn't depend on gconf, it's just that the binary was originally built with gconf... So for now gconf is not optional. But perhaps insisting upstream for a new binary is a good idea, though it hadn't released a binary since 2016...

@buzo Removing gconf as a dependency breaks popcorntime-bin:

popcorntime: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

We have to either keep gconf (that's the solution for today's problem) or have Popcorn Time not depend on its libraries on its source code (ideal).

Thanks je-vv. I have removed dependencies to gconf and gtk2. Or what would be a good reason to keep it an optional dependency?

Is it possible to make gconf an "optional" dependency? It has been dropped from Arch, and if popcorntime doesn't really depend on it, I'd like to get rid of gconf as Arch has done it (and avoid installing its deps either). BTW, I tried installing removing gconf as a dep, and not having gconf in the box, and it seems the binary just fails by not finding gcong, not sure if it can be asked upstream to generate a non gconf dependent binary, since I just built the non binary popcorntime from AUR, removing the gconf dep, and it built and worked just fine. Thanks !

kronikpillow: Did you look at the PKGBUILD? There you can find the answer:

source=("${_pkgname}.desktop" "<>-${pkgver}-Linux-64.tar.xz")

This doesn't seem to be the -bin version, did you download the official build from the website or did you build this your self? bcz the official one plays all files audio and video, while the git version has serious problems with both audio and video, and now all of a sudden after latest update, even this one has a issue ... o.O

There is also this site with a different (apparently older) version. Are they related? Or is that one just fake?

This version conflicts with nvm due to something to do with libnw.

You can see the issue here:

The fix so far has been to uninstall this popcorntime-bin and use the popcorntime-git version.

Hi. As of last update popcorntime downloads files like below.

[PATH]\Popcorn Time\70fd833d34b03603a38403a2f3f0ed752fb4886e\Supernatural.S12E16.HDTV.x264-LOL[ettv] instead of: [PATH]\Popcorn Time\Supernatural.S12E16.HDTV.x264-LOL[ettv]
