This is a -git package, that means you have to update it! Please do not flag it out of date because of the version number. The version number will automatically increase to the version of the latest commit. If you want to have the stable versions, please install the package obs-studio from [community].

linuxmetel commented on 2023-05-26 09:01 (UTC) in this package seems to require in mbedtls2.

@abend luajit is a optional dependency.

abend commented on 2023-04-11 03:45 (UTC) (edited on 2023-04-11 03:56 (UTC) by abend)

luajit needs to be added as a dependency (not only for make) since without it FE tools will not be loaded. I had to manually add this package to make it work. Or at least including it as optional dependency.

greve commented on 2023-03-29 11:23 (UTC) (edited on 2023-03-30 12:27 (UTC) by greve)

Please add these to the dependencies:

  • asio
  • nlohmann-json
  • websocketpp

On my system, OBS didn't compile without them.

Edit: Thanks for maintaining this BTW!

@imLEGR can you please upload the log to a paste site?

tonkku107 commented on 2023-01-13 09:34 (UTC)

You can replace libva-vdpau-driver with libva-nvidia-driver instead of uninstalling.

imLEGR commented on 2023-01-11 04:44 (UTC)

When I rename a source, the program hangs and crashes. I press F2 or right click on the source and rename and OBS hangs and closes.

tonkku107 commented on 2023-01-09 21:14 (UTC)

Well, I don't want to uninstall the package so I guess I have no choice

benklett commented on 2023-01-09 20:27 (UTC)

@tytan652 thank you.

@tonkku107 if tytan652's hint does not help, please try to reach out to the developers on obsproject's Discord.
