Manjaro is spam here, and the maintainer already said he can't install a different distribution just to support some users. Manjaro users: Please refrain from making further comments and use Manjaro support channels instead.

On my system I had to install v4l2loopback-dkms as well to be able to load the module. Not sure it is due to using linux-lts.

Is this true for anybody else?

Would expect "Git Clone URL" linking to "https://aur.archlinux.org/v4l2loopback-dc-dkms.git instead of "https://aur.archlinux.org/droidcam.git"!?

Hey @madskjeldgaard. libappindicator is marked as optional, as you may run Droidcam from CLI only. Maybe it would make sense to create a droidcam-cli or droidcam-gtk packages...

madskjeldgaard commented on 2020-12-13 10:09

should libappindicator be a non-optional dependency? I tried running without it and got errors so I think it is required.

Thanks!

Why droidcam-icon.png is installed in /opt ?

I tested with v4l2loopback-dkms on my Manjaro (yes, I read the pinned comment) and I needed to change three things, remove videodev in /etc/modules-load.d/droidcam.conf, leave only v4l2loopback in place of v4l2loopback-dc (that was obvious).

The third modification is to add /etc/modprobe.d/droidcam.conf to the droidcam package, the program works without this change, but the user cannot change the resolution.

Without the above changes my system has errors to start, I'm not complaining, I'm just passing on the information, maybe it can be useful.

Greetings.

With 1.6 supporting both, I think it would be preferable to drop the goofy custom loopback module and just depend on the regular v4l2loopback module / package.

I updated to 1.6, but didn't add v4l2loopback support yet, as I'm not sure how to handle it yet and we discuss it with other maintainers.

In the meanwile, one can manually install v4l2loopback-dkms package, unload v4l2lookback-dc module and load v4l2loopback to try it out.

Could you add snd-aloop to droidcam.conf so sound works a bit more OOTB?
