Please do not flag this out of date for pre-releases. The developer will normally mark them as the official release soon after if there are no issues.

I just noticed that the shortcuts plugin doesn't work on Wayland, with these flags: --enable-features=UseOzonePlatform --ozone-platform=wayland

in .config/youtube-music-flags.conf

@MartinX3 the same error. It happens after installing electron package because Youtube Music start script now wants electron22.

Revert #12 string to: exec /opt/YouTube\ Music/youtube-music $YOUTUBE_MUSIC_USER_FLAGS "$@" in /usr/bin/youtube-music fixes the issue with no needed electron package installed.

Edu4rdSHL commented on 2023-06-02 22:49 (UTC) changed $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/youtube-music-flags.conf to $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/chrome-flags.conf making the app read the chrome flags :)

Please fix that.

@boredland: Nice catch! I like setconf better for things like this, though.

boredland commented on 2023-02-24 17:52 (UTC)

very nice, thanks a lot @yochananmarqos! I think we'd need to additionally replace the path inside the .desktop file:

sed -i 's,/opt/YouTube Music/,,' "$pkgdir/usr/share/applications/${pkgname%-bin}.desktop"

@boredland: Hey, Jonas! Not a bad idea. It's now implemented.

boredland commented on 2023-02-23 11:54 (UTC)

Hi there! It would be very cool if we could have a .config/youtube-music-flags.conf where one could put some wayland electron flags for example. The chrome AUR package is doing that using a little wrapper script (
