this package doesn't let me record the screen. it doesn't work.

the only way to be able to record is by using this: flatpak install --user flathub com.obsproject.Studio

(at least in my case)

I tried obs-studio-git, but I don't get any window or desktop capture sources, and I can't install obs-xdg-portal-git because they conflict.

You can also install obs-studio-git instead; it builds master, so it includes the wayland patches. obs-studio will also be an option once they do a release including wayland support.

The Wayland branch got merged, and now it's pretty hard to get an up-to-date build. I've installed the Flatpak version as a workaround:

$ flatpak install --user

wlrobs-hg crash OBS

But obs-xdg-portal works just fine

I'll update the package this weekend in that case

@verbalshadow The "conflicting" plugins have a versioned dependency on OBS Studio (i.e. obs-studio>=23.0.2 instead of just obs-studio). For this to work properly, the provides array of this PKGBUILD needs to supply the version of the provided package, which is the same as this package:

When building I got the folliwing:

Why does this break the dependencies for some of my obs plugins but not all of them?

looking for conflicting packages...
:: obs-studio-wayland and obs-studio are in conflict. Remove obs-studio? [y/N] y
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies) 
:: removing obs-studio breaks dependency 'obs-studio>=23.0.2' required by obs-linuxbrowser-bin
:: removing obs-studio breaks dependency 'obs-studio>=25' required by obs-streamfx

I get the following message when running under gnome:

✗ QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland obs
Warning: Ignoring XDG_SESSION_TYPE=wayland on Gnome. Use QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland to run on Wayland anyway.

so from what I an tell obs is not running as a wayland application even with the patches. Is anyone else seeing this, and any thoughts on a fix? Is this a QT5 bug, or perhaps something wrong with my system?
