Anyone having issues with sommelier prepends in *.desktop files for high-dpi scaling?

Apps don't launch for me then, but do work if I use the command manually. Thinking it could be due to the tools not being on PATH for the services.

Dependency added, thanks @drelyn86!

Sommelier uses xdpyinfo from xorg-xdpyinfo to detect DPI scaling.

Yes that solved the issue for me. Thank you for making the change.

OK, got it. I updated PKGBUILD to include setting up LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH for sommelier and sommelier-x. I am not patching units, just added new line to override configuration - this is more clean way making it.

On my Pixelbook GPU acceleration works fine out-of-the-box with up-to-date arch and 77 beta ChromeOS version. Updated PKGBUILD works fine too.

Please try and confirm it resolves the issue for you.

The errors I was seeing were previously mentioned by rawkode where sommelier would fail to run with MESA-LOADER errors failing to find the dri drivers and well as the ones mentioned by mrln getting gpu acceleration to work.

Both of them fixed the issue by overwriting the dri drivers in /usr/lib/dri with those found in /opt/google/cros-containers/lib to allow sommelier to start and then switch back to the original libs to allow the bundles apps to work correctly.

By updating the sommelier service file to use /opt/google/cros-containers/lib for it's dri divers directly we no longer need to shuffle around these files.

Note: I'm not sure how this was working by default on your pixelbook without any of these changes but this was required to get sommelier and gpu acceleration to work on my HP chromebook X2.

Interesting, thanks for sharing - I will incorporate this to the PKBUILD! Can you provide more information about the errors you are mentioning?

In order to get sommelier to run correctly without any MESA-LOADER errors and get GPU support working I added the following lines to /usr/lib/systemd/user/{sommelier@.service,sommelier-x@.service}
