multimedia/playerctl port shar


I've ported the playerctl (https://github.com/altdesktop/playerctl), which is a MPRIS command-line controller and library, to DragonFly BSD and FreeBSD.  I've tested and am using it on DragonFly BSD and it should just work on FreeBSD as well.

'portlint' says 'looks fine'.

'make stage-qa' generates the following warnings (on DragonFly BSD 5.9):
====> Running Q/A tests (stage-qa)
Error: /usr/local/lib/libplayerctl.so.2.1.1 is linked to /usr/local/lib/libiconv.so.2 from converters/libiconv but it is not declared as a dependency
Warning: you need USES+=iconv, USES+=iconv:wchar_t, or USES+=iconv:translit depending on needs
Error: /usr/local/lib/libplayerctl.so.2.1.1 is linked to /usr/local/lib/libpcre.so.1 from devel/pcre but it is not declared as a dependency
Warning: you need LIB_DEPENDS+=libpcre.so:devel/pcre
Error: /usr/local/lib/libplayerctl.so.2.1.1 is linked to /usr/local/lib/libffi.so.6 from devel/libffi but it is not declared as a dependency
Warning: you need LIB_DEPENDS+=libffi.so:devel/libffi

However, all those libraries (libiconv, libpcre, libffi) are pulled by Glib libraries (e.g., libgio-2.0.so, libglib-2.0.so, libgobject-2.0.so).  So I'm not sure how to best handle these warnings.  Any suggestions are very appreciated.

your LIB_DEPENDS are ok but can be replaced by a simple USE_GNOME= glib2

multimedia/playerctl shar (updated)

Use 'USE_GNOME=glib20' to replace LIB_DEPENDS
Comment 3 Aaron LI 2020-06-05 15:44:28 UTC
Hi Baptiste, I've updated the port: replaced 'LIB_DEPENDS' with 'USE_GNOME=glib20'. Now the 'stage-qa' is also clean.  Thank you.

  New port multimedia/playerctl

  Playerctl is a command-line utility and library for controlling media players
  that implement the MPRIS D-Bus Interface Specification. Playerctl makes it easy
  to bind player actions, such as play and pause, to media keys. You can also get
  metadata about the playing track such as the artist and title for integration
  into statusline generators or other command-line tools.

  For more advanced users, Playerctl provides an introspectable library available
  in your favorite scripting language that allows more detailed control like the
  ability to subscribe to media player events or get metadata such as artist and
  title for the playing track.
