Re: [orca-list] Electron apps worked on POP!_OS, how to get same in Arch

I solved the problem.

For posterity, the environment variable QT_ACCESSIBILITY must be set in order for Chromium to render with accessibility enabled.

Create /etc/profile.d/ (or another file name of your choosing) and include the following line:


Save the file and reboot.

Hi all,
I recently purchased an Oryx Pro laptop from System76, which came with Pop!_OS. There, Electron apps like 
Bitwarden (and even Skype) were accessible out of the box.
I just finished installing Arch (and Mate), and I can’t get accessible Electron apps even if I install them 
via Flatpak (as Pop!_OS was doing).
I’m assuming there’s something I need to install, but I can’t seem to find anything online. Can anyone please 
shed some light on this? Do I have to be running Gnome Desktop or a Ubuntu based bistro in order to have 
accessible electron apps, or is there some way I can get these working under Arch/ Mate?
Thank you very much in advance.

Kind regards,
