I'm not really using this package anymore, as I migrated to use https://gitlab.com/aar642/shadow-repackaged directly, but I don't want to change the upstream AppImage to shadow-repackaged as this may disrupt other users of this repo. I will continue to update the PKGBUILD until someone else wants to take over.

Finally got my issue resolved. None of the packages that got pinned after I unsubscribed helped. (although they motivated me to resubscribed and try again) I reached out to shadow support and said that they officially support Ubuntu but I couldn't get that working in a VM. (which was true) The person who responded directed me to a repo that helped a lot. https://gitlab.com/aar642/shadow-repackaged

In my case my issue was you can't run plex and shadow at the same time and once I stopped the plex service it worked like a charm. (Note: the Stable version over there didn't work for me but the Beta and Alpha work fine as well the package in this repo. @tionis I highly recommend pinning the link to that gitlab as it has a bunch of possible issues listed with workarounds for a lot of the popular branches. (Arch among others)

Some notes:

Some dependencies may be required and were reported by other users. They are not in PKGBUILD because I personally haven't had any issue running Shadow without these packages. I need more users' reports to confirm they are really required before putting them into PKGBUILD. So please try the following dependencies if you encounter errors, and please report here if these dependencies do resolve your errors.

  1. libldap24 from AUR
  2. net-tools
  3. xdg-utils
  4. flatpak

Here's a list of common issues and some fixes for them: https://shadow-codex.com/shadow-linux-known-issues/

This is from/for Shadow Repackaged but Most tips should apply here

The most I could make work is the settings window and a white cursor completely on white background. The jingles indicate that the ShadowPC is running, just the video transmission seems not to work.

An Intel i915 based GPU could be the root cause.

Hi,

pkgver is at 8.0.10101
though pkgver() currently results in 8.0.10097

helpers constantly try to rebuild the package ;)

@koatao I applied your patch and upgraded to version 8.0.10097 For pull requests just send me a patch per email or on github https://github.com/tionis/shadow-tech

Hi,

I haven't figured yet how to do a «pull request» to set the package up-to-date (if it is even possible). So here the change I made to install the new app (very minor modifications). https://pastebin.com/kjG6jbkF

Hey there @tionis - any chance you'd want to create an aur package off of shadow repackaged :)?

I started having issues with R-300 suddenly so been doing some digging, was able to get in after changing the decoder to ffmpeg but came here to see if anyone else was having issues and saw your comment - shadow repackaged sounds like has many improvements which would be of benefit.

In the meantime, is it as simple as changing the source file and md5 / drop in replacement on this PKGBUILD if I wanted to give it a shot?

Thanks again for all you do here <3

@F1nny that's weird, I also don't see any changes that could lead to such a situation, if it occurs again, comment here or write me an email, and I'll look into it

F1nny commented on 2022-10-28 22:03 (UTC)

Thanks @tionis for taking over the package!=)

After 1161 came out, I noticed yay kept showing shadow as 1092 even though it'd run the build and update successfully each time, it wouldn't actually update. Manually clearing the yay cache/clean build fixed of course, just wanted to mention as never noticed that being necessary before O_o

That being said, after looking at the PKGBUILD changes, none of that would've made any difference RE that, so I'm guessing it's been that way for a while and just never noticed ha.

Anywho appreciate you taking over the package!
