Looking at nvidia-egl-wayland-full-beta-all ( it seems it isn't quite the same thing as 'egl-wayland' since it only provides the DSO library, but none of the pkg-config files that 'egl-wayland' provides.

I'd recommend reaching out to the nvidia-full-beta-all maintainer and let him know pkg-config files should be installed along with the DSO library in order to actually provide 'egl-wayland'.

Alternatively, nvidia-full-beta-all could be made dependent on 'egl-wayland'. The latter provides a more recent version of the library anyway.

For my NVIDIA drivers, I use the “nvidia-full-beta-all” proprietary package. This includes the “nvidia-egl-wayland-full-beta-all” package that conflicts with the mentioned “egl-wayland” package from the official Arch repositories. It appears the “nvidia-egl-wayland-full-beta-all” package is the same thing as the “egl-wayland” package. Is there a way you can configure the install script to recognize the “nvidia-egl-wayland-full-beta-all” package as adequate for the dependencies?

wayland-eglstream-protocols is provided by the egl-wayland package (, listed as a dependency.

I'm having issues building this package. Heres the error.

Dependency wayland-eglstream-protocols found: NO (tried pkgconfig and cmake)

protocol/ ERROR: Dependency "wayland-eglstream-protocols" not found, tried pkgconfig and cmake

There is no "wayland-eglstream-protocols" package in the Arch repos. I do have the "wayland-protocols-git" package installed.

Sorry for the slow update. This should build okay again.

This is failing to build for me.

but build ok

The next patch would create the file protocol/wayland-eglstream-controller.xml,
which already exists!  Skipping patch.

Thanks for the heads-up @TrueBers.

The issue should be fixed now.

Is it hardcoded for 1.15? Then you should add it to makedeps, I suppose...
