• gstreamer0.10 packages moved to AUR

    My question is what is changing?
    I find that do not need them and install


    They are replacing them?

  • GStreamer vs. GStreamer0.10

    I didn’t find an official info about the possibility to replace GStreamer0.10 with GStreamer.

    When I noticed that Cnchi installs a set of gst-plugins-* pkgs, plus few others gstreamer-related, I tried to understand which gstreamer0.10* pkgs may be substituted by gst-plugins-* ones:

    Cnchi                             My Arch systems
    --                                --
    extra/gstreamer              <--  aur/gstreamer0.10
    extra/gst-libav              <--  aur/gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg
    extra/gst-plugins-bad        <--  aur/gstreamer0.10-bad + aur/gstreamer0.10-bad-plugins
    extra/gst-plugins-base       <--  aur/gstreamer0.10-base + aur/gstreamer0.10-base-plugins
    extra/gst-plugins-base-libs  <--  <void>
    extra/gst-plugins-good       <--  aur/gstreamer0.10-good + aur/gstreamer0.10-good-plugins
    extra/gst-plugins-ugly       <--  aur/gstreamer0.10-ugly + aur/gstreamer0.10-ugly-plugins
    extra/gstreamer-vaapi        <--  <void>

    Briefly, everything.

    So I uninstalled all gstreamer0.10* stuff, keeping gstreamer and gst-plugins-* pkgs. I.e., substituting GStreamer0.10 by GStreamer.

    I did it awhile ago, and since then don’t notice any problem with multimedia. Various sound, video, audio files | streams are reproduced normally.

    This is a very personal experience. Yours may be different.


  • Hi,

    gstreamer0.10 was maintained because of legacy software. Now that most of all audio/video software can be compiled against current gstreamer, gstreamer0.10 has no use.


  • But question is also why gstreamer0.10* stuff is not uninstalled by update?

  • @joekamprad said in gstreamer0.10 packages moved to AUR:

    …why gstreamer0.10* stuff is not uninstalled by update?

    Because pacman knows nothing about AUR pkgs. They all are “foreign” for pacman. Pacman works with pkgs from regular repos only. AUR pkgs don’t belong to them.

    Each installed AUR pkg must be uninstalled by hand.

  • i know🌝
    but there was a dependancy change and before this packages was in extra…

  • It appears everytime I try to install gstreamer0.10 in my updates, it fails. I’m assuming because something is not being uninstalled

    Can someone post some quick instructions on how to get the new ones installed correctly, so I don’t keep getting notified there are updates available please?


  • yaourt -R gstreamer0.10 gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-bad gstreamer0.10-bad-plugins gstreamer0.10-base gstreamer0.10-base-plugins gstreamer0.10-good  gstreamer0.10-good-plugins gstreamer0.10-ugly gstreamer0.10-ugly-plugins
    yaourt -S gstreamer gst-libav gst-plugins-bad gst-plugins-base gst-plugins-base-libs gst-plugins-good gst-plugins-ugly gstreamer-vaapi

    …I try to install gstreamer0.10…

    The best bet is not to install but uninstall all gstreamer0.10* pkgs. They are all substituted by gstreamer and gst-* pkgs, which are all installed by Cnchi in Antergos by default.

  • Thanks. Is that what joekamprad commands with yaourt are doing? Sorry, still a bit new to Antergos and Arch…

  • @a4orce84 said in gstreamer0.10 packages moved to AUR:

    Yes, it is.
    Though I prefer a stronger removal command in yaourt:

    yaourt -Rcnsu ...

    You may see what the switches do with the command

    pacman -Rh

    The installation command by @joekamprad is also good. Most probably you’ll see that many pkgs are going to be reinstalled - that’s OK. They were already installed by Cnchi. Go ahead and confirm the installation.

  • @joekamprad Muchas gracias.👍

  • @joekamprad & @just: Thanks for that perfect solution!
