Hi Jose,

Thanks for the patch.

The addition of dbus as a propagated input was the only thing that stood
out to me.

If playerctl does call out to dbus-launch, then patching the source to
refer to the specific /gnu/store/...-dbus/.../dbus-launch binary would
be the nicest approach, since that would avoid propagating dbus.

Is it necessary to propagate the dbus package, and if so, what doesn't
work if you don't?
