Linux - Screen Share Sound Support

    I use Discord daily on Linux and constantly have to constantly have to hijack my mic just to have any sound from screen sharing. I've been an advocate in the past of supporting Discord in lieu of the alternatives, but I feel like a second class user given the lack of support that Linux receives.

    This is a ridiculous feature to not support with the rising popularity of gaming on linux

    it's genuinely ridiculous that this is still an issue

    i know linux is a much smaller userbase and not going to be a priority, but it's insanely frustrating when the standard itself should be able to handle this now, and there's just... nothing from discord about it?

    Bump so they can't ignore this

    Cancelling nitro because it's still not supported

    It's still such a dumb thing that they work on other features and aesthetics, while such a basic feature is missing on linux, and it would take little to no effort to fix it

    On top of it, the fact that this is, by far, literally the most voted post on voice and video topic, it's absurd

    Since they clearly are ignoring this thread, I think the only way to get their attention is to start spamming their support and ask why this doesn't work + send them tweets. Maybe that will get them to finally fix it.

    Everyone should just act stupid and ask why the sound doesn't work when we share our screen.

    Has this already been done in the past, perchance?

    Twitter is likely the best option at this point. Also getting non-Linux friends to upvote/tweet since it affects them too.

    Seems like a potential opportunity for a competitor like "Guilded" to maybe step in and take over, since Discord is clearly dropping the ball here… Kick some more folks to the curb who would have happily paid for your service there, Discord…  Hope it works out for ya.

    @BlooAlien Hate to break it to you but Guilded on Linux is so poorly coded, and lacks every basic feature that Windows has, and doesn't even have an App Tray icon, so if you close the window or minimize it you can't get it back up again. No time or thought has been put into it.

    @Alkaris: Are you absolutely 100% sure about all those things you say there?  I'm currently looking directly at the "Guilded" tray icon on my Linux/KDE desktop right this moment.  Still exploring the app, as I've only recently been told Guilded even exists, but thus far I'm not really seeing any "basic feature" missing yet.  Still gotta test the streaming before I'm completely sold on it, but thus far it's looking like they could easily become (if they aren't already) a valid alternative to Discord.  Not that it matters, because I'm still looking for any viable alternative to Discord at this point, since they clearly don't want me using (or paying for) their service.

    Question: is it really just a matter of updating Electron version for the desktop application? What goes into this?

    It should be yes

    Updating electron would also fix wayland support and fix numerous security issues caused my using an out of date version of electron

    Discord's negligence is dangerous.

    Also they have started to ban people who ask support about this issue. For the time they are spending on stopping people talking about this issue could be used to just update electron ffs.

    Wait, what? What the f? Hasn't there been any effort from Discord or some other community too to just do such a simple thing, instead of pumping on other new buggy features/updates?

    The community has tried to fix it but I can't mention it here as it gets your discord support account banned.

    Discord is spending more time banning people than taking the 20 mins to fix it.

    It would take basically no time on their part to fix it.

    Discord can no longer be used on: Unbuntu, Debian, Fedora, OpenSUSE and more by default.

    Also because of the security vulnerabilities, discord poses a threat to the security of your device.

    Thanks Discord!

    What the hell man its still not fixed??? how long will it take. Ah I guess its time to go back on windows no one can help it

    It's not time to go back on windows, it's time to not pay for nitro or use alternatives and push your windows friends to do same. If they lose a lot of users, maybe they will change their decision and finally begin to support linux as well

    Or just fork Discord's code base and update as you see fit and when necessary and add fixes you want.

    Alkaris since when is Discord's code publicly accessible? If it was, this thread would've never existed and we didn't have to shout at them for like 2 years now

    Damax Not exclusively, but it would help with some other things for sure.
    It has been done, running Discord on linux with a newer electron version. On Arch Linux, there's discord-arch-electron on the AUR that achieves this with many different newer Electron versions.
    It would definitely help with Wayland support and therefore improve screensharing and performance of the app itself.

    Unfortunately, again to my understanding, Discord doesn't just use Electron's screensharing feature, but instead built their own proprietary tech on top. I would assume that 1. fixing this and 2. making sure it works on every popular distro, WM and compositor, together with the comparatively small linux userbase complaining about it, is what causes this long holdup.
    I definitely blame Discord for not fixing this in so long or at least make a statement or an effort.. but it's also understandable that it's not "a 20 minute fix"

    I'd love to open a PR with a fix or start a GoFundMe to support the development costs of this.

    Completely outrageous that this is still not a feature. Discord is losing money on this, despite it not even being an impossible fix.
