consider renaming the package to discord-electron

Zoddo commented on 2021-05-22 22:34

Would you be able to support a "~/.config/discord-flags.conf" file like what electron does [1], but to apply some flags only to discord?

in order to be able to share the ENTIRE screen, or to be able to share wayland only (not xwayland) windows it's not enough to have Pipewire installed, because there's one chromium flag to manually enable pipewire support. I don't know how to enable it in this package so I tried it using discord via Google Chrome browser, and enabling "enable-webrtc-pipewire-capturer" flag in chrome://flags, and now it works.

Is there a way to enable this flag in this package without the need to use Google Chrome to be properly share screen?

The PKGBUILD isn't that large, it shouldn't take too much effort to tweak it to work with PTB if you want to try to do it yourself.

Someone make Discord PTB version of this? Or guide for it? Thanks in advance.

This can read from a flags file like the chromium package, but it would be under $HOME/.config/electron-flags.conf, and this is applied to all Electron packages using the system electron (I think).

If anyone's having issues under a Wayland environment with Discord (or any electron app or chromium) crashing when launching under Electron's Ozone Wayland, try passing the following flag to electron: --disable-gpu-memory-buffer-video-frames

This crash is caused by a bug that doesn't exist under Linux 5.10. This should fix crashing on Linux 5.11 and 5.12 (tested on rc4).

All my electron (and chromium) flags for reference: --enable-features=UseOzonePlatform --ozone-platform=wayland --disable-gpu-memory-buffer-video-frames --enable-gpu

How would you go about using something like BetterDiscord with this?

Can the start script read from a flags file (discord-flags.conf) like the chromium package?

Confirmed, double back mouse button is stock Discord's problem.
