OpenXR: Monado

The open source OpenXR runtime.

Installation

# Make sure to install the correct vulkan driver for your video card:
sudo pacman -S amdvlk
# Install Monado
yay monado-git
# At the time of this writing the openxr-loader-git package is
# broken due to a python dependency issue. We therefore need to
# workaround it (see https://github.com/pallets/markupsafe/issues/282#issuecomment-1043899655)
#pacman -S python-pip
#pip install -Iv markupsafe==2.0.1
# Install OpenXR Loader
#yay openxr-loader-git

Test

Now as everything is installed now, its time to probe for devices to see whether Monado is capable to detect your hardware. You should see something similar to the output below:
monado-cli test
