Since the last update of audacious (now: extra/audacious 2.2-3) the program doesn't start anymore. Started from command line, it throws only the error message

$ audacious2
audacious2: unable to launch selected interface skinned

Removing the audacious directory unter ~/.config/audacious/ doesn't change this. After ths package update pacman said, audacious-plugins was installed as dependency but is not used anymore, so I uninstalled it.

The package maintainer has forgotten to add extra/audacious-plugins as dependency. After re-installing audacious-plugins audacious worked again.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
extra/audacious 2.2-3

Steps to reproduce:
Start audacious from command line without audacious-plugins installed.
This task depends upon

@giovanni the package from repos wasn't built with audacious-plugins as dependency but in repos/trunk exists.
