The issue was resolved, so I bumped the dependency to Electron 29. Let's hope it won't explode 🙂

Ah, I was not aware of that. I built it with electron29-bin instead so I assumed electron29 would have the same behavior.

There is an issue in official electron29 package. It is pretty much unusable currently as it simply crashes on launch.

You can try it yourself though, if you are feeling lucky. Edit the 1st line in the PKGBUILD to use electron29. Report if you succeed 🙂

Could you update the electron dependency to v29 for screensharing? Owner comment:

If you want individual flags for Webcord, it is simpler to copy webcord.desktop into ~/.local/share/applications/ and edit Exec= line how you want.

User's local webcord.desktop file will take precedence over the installed one.

Understood, previous comment withdrawn :-)

This is how official packages do it.

The current implementation of reading user flags currently reads electron25-flags.conf. While I can confirm that the reading of flags works as expected, including the electron version in the file name is not something I've seen in any other package. I would suggest simply using electron-flags.conf.

Implemented reading of global electron flags.

Not sure about webcord-flags.conf, but picking up global electron flags sounds like a good idea.
