I've been loving sunshine - so much that I decided to enable the systemd unit for it.

However, when doing so, I encountered the following error:

Fatal: Couldn't find any working encoder

This was confusing to me, as it was running under all the same permissions as my shell, and launching from shell worked perfectly.

I found that unsetting the environment variable DISPLAY (info here) caused sunshine to fail. So I added the following line to my unit file:

Environment="DISPLAY=:0"  << new line - matches output from `env | grep  DISPLAY`

Adding this line, the lookup of encoders then worked properly. Looks like it relies on this for an Xorg session lookup of some kind.

Created issue:

I have started maintaining now. I have updated 0.18.4, re-instated the install file and added the automatic setcap, and prevented the large download of macos/windows ffmpeg modules.

In order to simplify maintenance of Sunshine, we have decided to drop support of this AUR package, since we are now publishing a pre-compiled pkg.tar.zst package as well as the PKGBUILD file to our GitHub releases. If someone would like to take over the AUR it would be ideal if there is communication with us in our Discord. Please reach out if you're interested. Thanks!

We're in process of updating the method for pushing images here. v0.18.3 is equal to v0.18.2. Please do not flag out of date. Thanks.

@greyltc We maintain these files in our source github repo. Please reach out on our discord server to discuss. Also, we're aware of this not receiving the last update. The v0.18.3 release was a test which failed. We're working to fix it.

Hey, I think there are a few issues with this package that I'd be happy to fix if you'd like to add me as a co-maintainer.

Please see here ( for an important message about testing a change to our AUR packaging. You can join our discord at ... We really need some people to test this out. If no one wants to test it then changes will get pushed anyway, but we'd like feedback before pushing updates here.

@patlefort This was unintentional and has been fixed. ... You will now only see an update on release events.
