A shoutout to (use that one if you want stable instead of canary!) :p

This is just a PKGBUILD based on the original discord-canary PKGBUILD and the discord_arch_electron PKGBUILD to use with Canary instead.

I'll keep it updated as I use Discord daily, so it'll bother me about it being outdated as soon as I turn on my PC :)

  • Confirmed working with Electron 9, 10 and 11 (and electron-ozone).

@qwerty-space there is a PR open for it, we didn't merge it yet because it's a little hackish:

Just in case anyone else came to this package to try it- Powercord does not work with this package.

Bumped version. Sorry for the delay!

PedroHLC commented on 2021-08-28 00:10

@beyley you can create a ~/.config/electron-flags.conf and configure it just like chromium-flags.conf. One CLI parameter per line.

Sorry guys, can't bump version, I'm not home.

@PedroHLC, how do i enable Vulkan backend? i cant seem to find anything online, if there is a list of working electron-flags id like to have it so i can tweak it specifically for my system

Hi @m00nw4tch3r, please submit a PR to Once merged, the chaotic-aur bot will upload your commit back here to AUR, with your authorship. (also, bump pkgrel and update .SRCINFO)

I can guarantee that flags (Vulkan backend, accelerated-video, Skia, oop-rasterization, zero-copy, harmony, v8-cache) work. But sadly (at least last time I checked), there is none to enforce pipewire's screen sharing to work.

I imagine we need someone to patch the JS side of this and implement the interface @fine2006 mentioned (something similar was discussed in MS' teams repo), or maybe a flag in the chromium-side to wrap the old screen-sharing to work out-of-box with the new one.

If someone comes with it, feel free to submit a PR to and the github-action will resubmit it here once it gets merged.

This uses electron, which can be configured with ~/.config/electron-flags.conf the same way you do with chromium-flags.conf

fine2006 commented on 2021-06-21 13:31

@allexj I face the same issue but it seems like discord hasn't implemented org.freedesktop.portal.ScreenCast, which is required for sharing things.
