    error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
    :: gstreamer0.10-good-plugins: installing libsoup (2.58.0-1) breaks dependency 'libsoup-gnome'

    That message above is after I remove gnome-shell-frippery. Before that, It said gnome-shell-frippery breaks gnome-shell, and gnome shell breaks ‘i forgot what’.

    What should I do? Should I remove libsoup? Is it safe? That gstreamer and libsoup sounds important.
    Thank you :)

  • Hi, that particular gstreamer package was moved from the official repos to the AUR a few months ago. Its safe to remove it and that is what I recommend you do to resolve the conflict

    Cheers! 😃

  • Thank you

  • pacman -Qs gstreamer0.10
    if it finds packages remove them too they are old and useless…
    new ones called:
    pacman -Ss gst-plugins
