I get a "file or folder not found" window. clicking on ok will freeze the software. using 5.1 but writing here because discussion is here.

@AwesomeHaircut no package should ever modify anything in /home. Example configuration files belong in /usr/share. You should then add a message in a post_install() script about where to find an example config file.

@erikvanvelzen thanks
it should be updated now.

I didn't add the settings because aur packages shouldn't modify the ~ folder. I might be wrong though.

Below is a diff for droidcam 6.0 (version in AUR is currently 4.1)
It also creates the file ~/.droidcam/settings
I hope someone can update

@laegnur (and others): you need the correct version of linux-*-headers (matching your kernel) installed to build the v4l2loopback module - for me it was linux-ck-k10-headers.

Can it be made that either v4l2loopback-dkms or v4l2loopback package is installed is fine? The preference could be whatever you choose.

laegnur commented on 2015-05-27 17:18

I don't now why is this error. I updated the system and with the new kernel it works... :\

this is problematic because some people might have v4l2loopback-dkms installed.
I think i will include a message in the post-install function.

PreparationH67 commented on 2014-12-04 18:50

Since this is setup to require the v4l2loopback module can that be added at a dependency or include a message that that needs to be installed?
