Manjaro is spam here, and the maintainer already said he can't install a different distribution just to support some users. Manjaro users: Please refrain from making further comments and use Manjaro support channels instead.

I have unpinned and removed the pinned comment suggesting people to install the make with sudo make install. This is silly. This is a packaging problem where the author does not account for a shared SRCDEST.

This is solved with "${pkgname}-${pkgver}.zip::${pkgname}/archive/${_pkgver}.zip". Any other workarounds are wrong.

i think you could just remove modules from this package and add "v4l2loopback-dkms" as a dependency

Also with the workaround doesn't work....

i get

Registering webcam device modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'videodev': Invalid argument

EDIT: It worked... I need just to reboot a try again.... Thanks a lot...

Note:Some AUR helpers do not redownload as it has the same name and then complain it has wrong md5sum

nope still issue with droidcam.tar.bz2 checksum This is what I get

sha1sum droidcam.tar.bz2

6660efa36255780000cef7992e441dd4b63c3bba  droidcam.tar.bz2

md5sum droidcam.tar.bz2

5ff0e772a76befba4e37e03101b611d7  droidcam.tar.bz2

This is the same key given by the official by the official package

echo "5ff0e772a76befba4e37e03101b611d7" | md5sum -c --
# OK?



The last key looks wrong to me ...

This works like a charm!

Is this working for you guys? I checked and it updated but the checksums matched.

kamelie1706 commented on 2020-05-03 21:04


Using arch: makepkg - o fails

It cannot validate (md5sums check) droidcam.tar.bz2

Same error wether I try wiki instruction to install AUR package or your workaround.

Thx for maintaining this package.

NB: droicam seems to work now also on ios.
