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.

jonseitz I suspect that happens, because you have "." in your PATH, so local "install" script takes precedence over "global" "install" binary. I'll fix that, it seems like a reasonable case.

Ran into an issue installing just now, getting the following error:

==> Starting package_droidcam()...
~/builds/droidcam/src/droidcam-1.3/linux ~/builds/droidcam/src
Invalid parameters: '-Dm755' and 'droidcam'
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package_droidcam().

It seems that the issue is that the calls to install ... in the package scripts were referencing the install script in src/droidcam-1.4/linux/, instead of /sbin/install. I was able to get it working by changing the PKGBUILD to:

Possibly it's something specific to my system, but dropping this here in case anyone runs into the same.

first, I wanted to thank the maintainers. Secondly, there is an easy fix for manjaro users. You just need to install kernel headers specific to your kernel version. So after installing linuxXX-headers, reboot and then install droidcam.I've tested it and it works perfectly fine. Best of luck!

@LenLord That's the problem, I've already did this before to try the installation of DroidCam: [albert@ThinkPad ~]$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/libusbmuxd-2.0

And the build still the crashes...

UPDATE: I've found the issue, it missed the .so in libusbmuxd-2.0

Regards and thank you very much!!

LendLord commented on 2020-07-09 10:03

@acutbal As I wrote early to link you need to specify location where is libusbmuxd and execute "sudo ln -s YOUR_LIB_LOCATION /usr/lib/" replace YOUR_LIB_LOCATION with your path

acutbal commented on 2020-07-09 09:56

@LenLord Thank you very much for your help, I've found libusbmuxd.

I've searched on the Arch wiki how to link a file from an AUR package but I haven't found it. Please, could you suggest me a place where to learn it? Thank you very much and regards.

LendLord commented on 2020-07-09 09:42

@acutbal Try to find in your system and link it. Command - whereis libusbmuxd

acutbal commented on 2020-07-09 09:40

@LenLord Yes, it's installed, v.2.0.1-1. Weird...


LendLord commented on 2020-07-09 09:37

@acutbal did you install libusbmuxd? if not install and link it, if needed.

acutbal commented on 2020-07-09 09:32

@LenLord I've tried your suggestion but it doesn't work, the build still crashes. I've searched on my system the file "lusbmuxd-2.0" and it doesn't exist.
