Clementine Slackbuild

I am trying to build Clementine from the slackbuild. I am getting a problem from CMake. Terminal output looks like this:

The following components will be built:
   D-Bus support
   Devices: Audio CD support
   Devices: DeviceKit backend
   Devices: GIO device backend
   Devices: MTP support
   Devices: iPod classic support support
   Moodbar support
   Wiimote support

The following components WILL NOT be built:
   Crash reporting (disabled in CMake config)
   Devices: iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad support (missing libimobiledevice, libusbmuxd)
   Gnome sound menu integration (missing indicate-qt)
   Google Drive support (missing Google sparsehash, Taglib 1.8 beta)
   Sparkle integration (missing Mac OS X, Sparkle)
   Spotify support: blob downloader (disabled in CMake config)
   Spotify support: core code (missing protobuf)
   Spotify support: non-GPL binary helper (missing protobuf, libspotify, Spotify support: core code)

CMake Error: The following variables are used in this project, but they are set to NOTFOUND.
Please set them or make sure they are set and tested correctly in the CMake files:
    linked by target "libclementine-common" in directory /tmp/SBo/clementine-20120913_5ddabb4/ext/libclementine-common

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
This appears to be different from previous problems reported at]
and at].

I don't think I want the protobuf code because I don't want spotify support, but CMake seems to think this is a problem.

Anybody know how to fix this ?

This page:
Says protobuf is required, maybe something else inside clementine uses it.

I successfully built the Clementine package from SBo and needed protobuf, qjson, and chromaprint. My notes are vague - I don't know why chromaprint is needed.

I did this yesterday - install the other requirements that the build needs and you should be OK.

I think it needs an additional python module too but the build works fine.

You can build/install the dependencies through sbopkg, download the source and compile if you want a newer version than the Slackbuild provides.

Thanks to all who responded. Solved. COnfirmed that as long as you build and install the protobuf package first, the Clementine Slackbuild works fine.

i had the same problem and reading the dependencies clementine required at i could install it.

the thing is i cannot play mp3s cause a dialog appears claiming "there's a gstreamer missing complement" (by the way, i don't know if that is the correct translation)

(i'm at slackware 14.0)

well, it was my mistake of course. I read the requisites from compiling clementine but i forgot to compile this

"gst-plugins-ugly (for mp3 support)"

i left it in alone in a forgotten tty ... i totally miss that.
Now works perfectly, as it was suppposed to.
