This can read from a flags file like the chromium package, but it would be under $HOME/.config/electron-flags.conf, and this is applied to all Electron packages using the system electron (I think).

If anyone's having issues under a Wayland environment with Discord (or any electron app or chromium) crashing when launching under Electron's Ozone Wayland, try passing the following flag to electron: --disable-gpu-memory-buffer-video-frames

This crash is caused by a bug that doesn't exist under Linux 5.10. This should fix crashing on Linux 5.11 and 5.12 (tested on rc4).

All my electron (and chromium) flags for reference: --enable-features=UseOzonePlatform --ozone-platform=wayland --disable-gpu-memory-buffer-video-frames --enable-gpu

How would you go about using something like BetterDiscord with this?

Can the start script read from a flags file (discord-flags.conf) like the chromium package?

Confirmed, double back mouse button is stock Discord's problem.

I'm having both the betterdiscord and mouse button problem; the mouse button problem is part of stock discord though.

I face a problem where using mouse button for going back registers twice. Any help how to fix or workaround this? I'm on Manjaro 21.0 Ornara KDE Plasma.

Is anyone having trouble installing betterdiscord once it updates to the newest version? I'm getting a "your discord installation has continuously failed to update and is now very out of date" warning from discord if I try to do betterdiscordctl install. Does anyone know a solution for this?

Same problem as @ibrokemypie and @shket, the standalone package works fine but as soon as I try to install betterdiscord, I get an error message about my installation being "way out of date."

Fails with electron12-bin v12.0.1-1 with the following error: libva error: vaGetDriverNameByIndex() failed with unknown libva error, driver_name = (null). I have the libva libva-mesa-driver and 32 bit variants installed.

Confirmed working with electron12-bin v12.0.1-1 with version 0.0.14-1.
