Hi @cspeck-aai,

I'm starting it through the application desktop shortcut. I have WebRTC working normally on firefox. xdg-desktop-portal-wlr seems to work fine there.

Since last update the window decoration disappeared so I had to change the desktop shortcut and add --enable-features=WaylandWindowDecorations

@sidicer: thanks for your comments, I have updated the patch and pushed a new package version

@ingvij: Are you starting the app via console or the application/desktop shortcut? It only works if you start via the shortcut.

Otherwise I'd suggest verifying that WebRTC works at all (e.g. can you screen share via in Firefox?) and ensuring you have pipewire and everything else required for WebRTC screen sharing. For Gnome I found it to need xdg-desktop-portal-gtk, xdg-desktop-portal-gnome and xdg-desktop-portal, but YMMV.

I'm having issues sharing screen with slack. This package, even though it is using pipewire and all the XDG-desktop-portal packages, still doesn't seem to fix the issue. Is there any config I need to update? All I get is a black screen when I try to share entire screens an only a few windows are shareable..

It's not running with Wayland out of the box + with Xwayland it has issues with Mouse leaving the window (especially with dual or triple monitor setup)

Modify launch attributes to this: --enable-features=WebRTCPipeWireCapturer --enable-features=UseOzonePlatform --ozone-platform=wayland -s %U

To confirm that you're running Wayland and not XWayland - launch xprop in your terminal on hover over any window - if Cursor changes to X(+) - you're not in wayland but xwayland

Hope this helps.
