python2-protobuf should be listed as dependency.

@chrismin13 I had the same issue and was able to fix it by installing libpipewire02

I'm not able to compile this package unfortunately. I've tried this a couple of times and it always stop at compiling this class: I've tried installing pipewire-git from the AUR in case that was the problem, but that hasn't helped out. Any ideas? Thanks.

recent update of re2 broke it for me. I had to manually ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/ to get it run.

chromium broke for me with the following error:

$ chromium
[25965:25965:0129/] No xdg_shell object
[25965:25965:0129/] Failed to initialize Wayland platform
zsh: trace trap (core dumped)  chromium

Hi, testing Version 78.0.3904.108 (Official Build) Arch Linux (64-bit).

Trying to bookmark any page with drag and drop from the URL bar into Bookmarks bar completely crash the browser - happens every time.

Various site tooltips also do not work, showing only black rectangles in completely random positions on the page.

I'm currently testing @jstkdng's ungoogled-chromium-ozone 78.0.3904.108-1 from here:

and discovered that the thumb mouse buttons for forward/back (5-buttons-mouse) are not working, neither is password import (with --enable-features=PasswordImport flag set in chromium-flags.conf).

Can that be related to the ozone build? Can someone here confirm if these two things are working with chromium-ozone 78.0.3904.108-1?

The VAAPI patches for the X11 builds are not compatible because Ozone uses a significantly different codepath for video decoding generally.

I don't believe the Igalia team working on this have made desktop VAAPI a priority, although it seems they have video acceleration via v4l2 working for embedded devices:

I've personally tried to make it work. A minor fox is required to make it build with the use_vaapi flag, but then I couldn't find a combination of minigbm, libdrm etc that made the video acceleration actually happen.

Can you please explain why VAAPI does not work? Is the VAAPI-patch incompatible or is there another reason?

Any chance of adding a binary version as AUR package chromium-ozone-bin?

What I'm looking for is an ungoogled-chromium with VAAPI and Wayland support. If I only had the knowledge and time...

@osandov I just saw this:

The window title is fixed on the current master branch.
