Screensharing on WaylandΒΆ

Screen sharing on Wayland often cannot work due to apps not using xdg-desktop-portal/PipeWire.

Fortunately, we now have xwaylandvideobridge, which is a bridge between the app and xdg-desktop-portal to allow apps to screen share, even when they don't directly support xdg-desktop-portal.

Only the uBlue (Universal Blue) Kinoite (KDE) image has xwaylandvideobridge installed by default, since GNOME and wlroots have various issues with it.

Kinoite users can run just fixscreenshare for enabling xwaylandvideobridge at startup.
