This seems abandoned. Last commit was 3 years ago and it is crashing on Hyprland.

As this wiki page says, it seems okay! I just added other architectures. Thank you.

This package successfully builds and runs on ARM architectures. Please add 'armv7h' and 'aarch64' to arch in PKGBUILD.

There seems to be a missing makedepends, but I'm not sure what it is:

+1, please change git repo to the new fork (

OctopusET commented on 2021-08-04 02:53 (UTC)

forked version that works with resent version of wayland. Chould you change git repo with this?

Hi, git makedepend is missing.

Follow-up: upstream (~sircmpwn/ confirmed that GNOME does not support the Wayland protocols necessary for wshowkeys to work correctly.
