Hi xloce! There is a problem with some window managers. Maybe compton fixes your problem: https://support.screen.so/bugs/p/linux-xmonad-black-screen

Initializes fine, though with a black screen on the monitor in focus when in a meeting. Am I missing something?

Hello, captn3m0!

'gir1.2-gnomekeyring-1.0' seems to be the part of 'libgnome-keyring'. Please, see: https://packages.debian.org/source/jessie/libgnome-keyring.

I suppose there's no need to list 'gir1.2-gnomekeyring-1.0' as a dependency.

Funny story just now. I searched AUR for screen.so a while back and again today and I swore I didn't get any results, and so I built my first PKGBUILD (https://gitlab.com/elijahlynn/aur-screen-desktop-bin) and was excited to push it up and followed all the instructions but then was getting permission denied and saw some suggestions that the name may be taken so I searched again and found you had already uploaded this last month! It was still a great learning experience and I am glad I did it even though I won't be the maintainer for this, and frankly I was already scheming a way to have the maintenance be done mostly by the community by automating the merge of any PR that received 3 thumbs up by GitLab users.

In fact, there is another duplicate package https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/screen-desktop/ without the -bin suffix too, that was even uploaded before this one.

One thing worth noting is that searching AUR for "screen.so" only yields results for https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/screen-desktop/ and not https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/screen-desktop-bin (this one). Not sure why as PKGBUILD has same occurrences of "screen.so" though.

Also, love that you put this up on GitHub for collaboration, so much better than the comments here and reduces maintenance burden!

Update: I think I was searching for "screen-so" maybe. This one is a tough one to search for. Ahh, and I see now, somehow https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/screen-desktop/ has "keywords" which I don't see in PKGBUILD or .SRCINFO so not sure how that gets added but that I wonder if it was recently added.

Notes for first releasE: The dependencies are mostly from the Debian package with a few marked as optional. I still think a lot of dependencies can be trimmed down, but this is just the first cut. I was also hoping to make it dependent on electron now that screen uses Electron 8, but that didn't seem feasible (electron package doesn't work against encrypted binaries, and neither does asar).

Feedback is welcome. PRs can be filed against https://github.com/captn3m0/aur-screen-desktop-bin
