app-misc/wiimotedev-1.4.0 ebuild

As you know, the "wiimote"-use-flag of media-sound/clementine does not actually do much, it just enables the wiimote support and configuration interface. The actual workhorse in communicating between clementine and the Nintendo WiiMote is (or should have been) wiimotedev-daemon from wiimotedev-project (, which has, sadly, been in quite a sorry state for a long time, most of the project not compiling on Gentoo. But a few days ago the developer finally released an updated version, which now compiles and works perfectly on Gentoo!

Attached is an ebuild of the new wiimotedev-1.4.0.

It *really* should from now on be a dependency of clementine, if clementine is compiled with USE="wiimote".
