Works fine for me. I'm using it on a daily basis.

Cant get it to successfully connect to my TV, has anyone got this app working for them?

Is this package working for anyone? I tried to make it work with a TV and at first the TV showed but it failed on connecting. Now, I cannot even see the TV after trying a bunch of things like installing dnsmasq.

I even tried passing the variable NETWORK_DISPLAYS_DUMMY=1 and it doesn't show anything in the stream.

I only see this errors when running the app in debug mode with G_MESSAGES_DEBUG=all:

(gnome-network-displays:2264): GStreamer-CRITICAL **: 17:43:55.998: gst_event_new_qos: assertion 'diff >= 0 || -diff <= timestamp' failed

@a_salata: It's not a dependency, it's a member of the base-devel group which is a prerequisite for using the AUR.

Missing dependency pkg-config.

Did not find pkg-config by name 'pkg-config'
Found Pkg-config: NO

@tag_enk: This depends on networkmanager which depends on wpa_supplicant. The program is designed for GNOME (hence the name) which uses networkmanager by default.

it requires wpa_supplicant...which I don't use cause I use iwd....right? are all you all using wpa_supplicant still?

requires networkmanager, optionally dnsmasq

Thank you, @yochananmarqos!

Hi @yochananmarqos and thanks for maintaining the package. I see why you don't want to have dnsmasq as a (mandatory) dependency. I confirm that dnsmasq is a make dependency of libnm. This is why I would like to suggest adding dnsmasq as an optional dependency since some Miracast clients (e.g. my Samsung TV) do not work without dnsmasq. Also, dnsmasq is explicitly listed as a dependency in the documentation of gnome-network-displays. I'm sure this will help save people time.

TL;DR: Would be great if you could add optdepends=('dnsmasq: necessary for certain clients')

Yes that worked. Thanks a lot!
