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.

The client works with the standard v4l2loopback module, and installing v4l2loopback-dc is optional. Standard v4l2loopback usage examples. The standard v4l2loopback module is already available on most distros. Better change deps to v4l2loopback* ?

droidcam is ok also with v4l2loopback-dkms (community) instead v4l2loopback-dc-dkms ?

Easy fix for manjaro.

Sorry, I haven't had a working laptop for a bit now, so even though I can probably update and fix the package, I don't have a reliable was to build and test it at the moment. I am reading the comments here about it though.

Hmm, perhaps splitting out one more package, namely "droidcam-cli" would be a way to go here then. So "droidcam" can depend on all GUI-related libraries. This will still allow people to install CLI-only version. What do you think?

I agree with @s1lv3r this package fails without libappindicator-gtk3.

s1lv3r commented on 2021-05-05 14:51

I believe libappindicator-gtk3 should be added to the required deps instead of the optional deps

JLSalvador commented on 2021-05-04 09:01

This new version requires app-indicator.h from the package libappindicator-gtk3.

The only way to make droidcam work at first shot and without need to worry about anything is this: Follow instructions and it'll take less than one minute (download included)

I believe linux-headers should be added as dependency.

@lorcap see why headers should not be in dependencies.

==> WARNING: backup entry file not in package : etc/modprobe.d/droidcam.conf

This seems indeed like a bug. This file should only be backed up for v4l2loopback-dc-dkms package, not for both of them.
