Launch with local.d ?

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

Should local.d really be used to launch Sway, as stated in the article ? My intuition is that this might cause issues, and that some form of init script should rather be used. Anyone know precisely ? -- Ris (talk) 10:40, 4 April 2022 (UTC)

Specify that xdg-desktop-portal-hyprland can be used?

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

On Hyprland's wiki they say that you can use their xdg-desktop-portal with any wlroots compositor; would it be beneficial to add a subsection (or maybe just a sentence or two) in Screen sharing does not work that says you can use xdg-desktop-portal-hyprland? It will likely need to add that Hyprland-specific features will be disabled (I.E. sharing regions of the screen). Xarvatium (talk) 14:59, 25 May 2023 (UTC)

Stop proposing light as a way to handle screen lighting?

Talk status
This discussion is done.

light has been an archived repository on GitHub since some months and the project has been marked as orphaned since 8th March, 2023 as specified in the readme. Should it still be proposed to users since that is basically not maintained anymore?. huntears (talk) 01:12, 29 September 2023 (UTC)

i would prefer that it continue to be mentioned until an actively-maintained replacement is described on the page. The software still works - at least in my own usages - and has been more recently updated than the currently-listed alternative, acpilight, which was last updated two years ago. -- Flexibeast (talk) 02:40, 29 September 2023 (UTC)
I've added a warning to the corresponding section. Thanks for the heads-up Alexandre Flion (huntears) ! (Special:Diff/1261417/1263002) -- Ris (talk) 13:36, 29 September 2023 (UTC)

xdg-desktop-portal doesn't appear to have a screencast USE flag

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

This page recommends "Ensure sys-apps/xdg-desktop-portal is built with the screencast USE flag." But as far as I can tell, such a flag does not exist. Am I missing something or that no longer necessary? Vpzom (talk) 22:01, 13 May 2024 (UTC)
