Fedora 40 kde problems on Discord

I have Fedora 40 KDE with Wayland installed, and Discord keeps crashing, whether from flatpak or installed via terminal. What should I provide to solve the problem?

You need to share details of your system and what error you see in the terminal when you start Discord. I am successfully running with the tar.gz version on fedora 40.

What is the output of inxi -Fzxx? Post as preformatted text using the </> button.
What errors do you see when you run Discord from the tar.gz in a terminal?

However, there is a problem with discord and chrome crashes on wayland and x11

Your hardware spec is close to my systems, own cpu type is different.

You forgot to share the errors you see.

Discord’s linux app is horribly broken and doesnt support wayland yet. Id recommend running the browser version or getting a third party front end.

I was using an earlier version. I will test 58 and see if it works for me.

Added discord

I have just installed the discord-0.0.58.tar.gz on KDE plasma wayland.

cd bin
rm -rf Discord
tar xf ~/Downloads/discord-0.0.58.tar.gz
Discord/Discord

It just works for me, but I have not tested Audio or Video, just text messages.

It is indeed running as an X11 app under XWayland.

thank you for your help, I’ll check later, but for now I’m using the browser versions as applications.

I notice that I am running kde wayland and you are running kde x11.
Can you try running kde wayland and see if that helps?

The same thing happens on Wayland.

Maybe an issue with your user specific config.

Try adding a new user to your system and see if the new user can run discord.

The same is done on another Wayland account.

I did a web search for “discord GetVSyncParametersIfAvailable” and get lots of reports of problems. It seems to be a problem with hardware acceleration in the electron framework used by Discord.

See [Bug]: GetVSyncParametersIfAvailable() failed for 1 times! · Issue #32760 · electron/electron · GitHub

You may find an answer with a more web searching.

I figured out were discord saves it’s settings to, it is in .config/discord/settings.json.
You could see what you have in that file, if it exists.

Try adding this and see if it helps:

"enableHardwareAcceleration": false

Here is my complete settings.json for reference:

$ cat .config/discord/settings.json

  "IS_MAXIMIZED": false,
  "IS_MINIMIZED": false,
