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 only way to make droidcam work at first shot and without need to worry about anything is this: https://www.dev47apps.com/droidcam/linuxx/ Follow instructions and it'll take less than one minute (download included)

I believe linux-headers should be added as dependency.

@lorcap see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/DKMS_package_guidelines#Dependencies 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.

I believe linux-headers should be added as dependency.

It took me a while to figure out why droidcam complained about a missing kernel module despite the package compilation and installation succeeded. Then I reinstalled the package and noticed the following error:

==> Unable to install module v4l2loopback-dc/1.7.2 for kernel *: Missing kernel headers.

which I fixed by installing linux-headers.

When running makepkg, I get the following warning:

Could you add v4l2loopback-dkms as an alternative dependency to v4l2loopback-dc-dkms, since either of those packages will do the job?

@invidian Yes that seems to be the cause for my problem. Removing it via modprobe -r snd-aloop brings my internal soundcard back. For now I decided to just remove snd-aloop from /etc/modules-load.d/droidcam.conf and try to use my internal microphone instead of the one of my smartphone.

invidian commented on 2021-01-20 17:09

@patchcard2 perhaps this is because we load snd-aloop kernel module?

patchcard2 commented on 2021-01-20 17:01

For some reason, after installing this package ALSA did not recognize my internal soundcard anymore: snd_hda_intel 0000:00:1b.0: cannot find the slot for index 0 (range 0-1), error: -1

@maximbaz thanks for explanation! I replaced ../.. with ${srcdir} then.

@invidian: it fails as hexhu describes when you build in isolated environment in chroot, e.g. install devtools package and run extra-x86_64-build.

I would suggest avoid using relative paths and just use ${srcdir} in place of ../../
