Please look at There is a patch you may want to push upstream.

this package depends on pkg-config, as you can see here:

The Intel Indirect Branch Tracking (IBT) feature, available for 11th and higher gen Intel processors, has been enabled with Linux 5.18, causing the v4l2loopback_dc module to fail to load:

traps: Missing ENDBR: init_module+0x0/0x1000 [v4l2loopback_dc]

A workaround is of course disabling IBT by passing ibt=off as a kernel parameter. Link to upstream issue:

mmg commented on 2022-06-21 04:23 (UTC)

If v4l2loopback isn't found after a kernel update, reinstalling droidcam does not seem to work, but forcing yay -Syu v4l2loopback-dc-dkms with a clean build should do the trick.

@CodeXYZ I've been using it for 2-3 days now and it seems to work without problems.

Thank you @ZappaBoy that saved me so much time :)

[EDIT] BTW I didn't test this at all so make sure you lmk if it's working

libappindicator-gtk3 now runtime dependency. Droidcam won't start without it.

@CodeXYZ Working on my end. Thank you very much. Very much appreciate it
