Proper Linux Screen Sharing Coming to Chromium & Electron Apps like Discord


There’s some good news for multi-monitor Linux users fed up at not being able to share a specific screen in apps like Google Meet and Discord. A patch to add ‘screen enumeration’ to the Chromium browser is currently pending merge upstream. Once this fix is accepted Chromium and Chromium-based apps (like Discord) will finally support full screen sharing on Linux in a manner similar to that on Windows and macOS. Not being a multi-monitor user, or someone who shares their screen often, I wasn’t aware of this particular limitation until recently. (Source: OMG! Ubuntu)
