v4l2loopback was not loaded by default on my arch for some reason. I did have to install and load it manually. Otherwise, it gave this error:

Error: Droidcam/v4l2loopback device not found (/dev/video[0-9]).
Did it install correctly?
If you had a kernel update, you may need to re-install.
Audio loopback device not found.
Is snd_aloop loaded?
Client v1.8.0
adb: error: internal error
Error: Error adding adb forward!

Does anyone think keeping v4l2loopback as a necessary dep should be considered? I have read in the comments that v4l2loopback-dkms is optional. So why is droidcam installing it?

@alerque Thank you very much!

@santilococo This package can be uninstalled using pacman just like any other package you install. It does not load the module, so however you loaded it on your system should be reversed by you. There are several potential ways that could happen. If you did nothing, then you don't have to do anything after installing. If you loaded it manually some way, reverse what you did.

Hi! Do you have a script for uninstalling? (Unloading the loopback module for example). TY.

As @simona has said, the dependency should be changed to v4l2loopback-dkms. Having a different module interfering with other applications for me.

Looks like it's still in /usr/bin @alerque Thanks for the tip though :-)

When you update to 1.8.0 be sure to configure the PREFIX, upstream changed the default to be /usr/local but for packages this should be /usr.

It's been so long and I'm so rusty. Had to learn all the basics again ha! Should be good now let me know otherwise.

As lots of people here already mentioned libappindicator-gtk3 should be part of the required dependency. The build fails without it. Please commit a change for that.
