Problem with the keyboard while calling on Skype


Hello.

I use ArchLinux with GNOME (Wayland / systemd).

I also use skypeforlinux-stable-bin version from AUR.

Everything is fine while calling with someone on Skype. But when someone (me or the others) turns the camera (or the screen sharing) on, the keyboard immediately stops working. I cannot type anything. Sometime when I focus on input, it starts typing random letter (looply). I tried to find problem with dmesg, but there is no problem.

Thanks for any help!

I guess running skype from command line in terminal or dmesg has nothing to say about this?
I kniw you mentioned dmesg says nothing. It will say disconnect somewhere I would think?

The problem also appears when someone (except me) turn the camera on - so my integrated camera should be still off.
