I have problems with screensharing under Gnome, especially using Firefox.
If I’m participating in a video call using Firefox and a website like Jitsi or Webex, I can’t share my screen with others. If I click the button, a permissions dialogue pops up, the only option being “use system settings”.
If I grant the permissions nothing happens. The screen is not shared and I don’t get a selection dialogue where I could choose the window or screen I want to share.
I don’t get any errors in the browser console either.
If I try this using chromium I can share my screen but it remains entirely black, with only the cursor to be seen if I select the whole screen.
Sharing a single window works, the dialogue that pops up to select the window to share does however not contain all open windows. Some Applications I can share while others aren’t even an option to select.
The same happens with Discord.
- Firefox: 98.0.2
- Chromium: 100.0.4896.60
- I installed pipewire using
manjaro-pipewire. At the moment that is 20220217-2
- I’m on the
stablebranch, everything is up to date
I did some research, but all related problems I could find were either outdated, or did not match the problems I described above.
I would greatly appreciate any advice on how to debug this further.
Thanks in advance
