Hey there.
i would like to try out this extension but no Vulkan programm willl launch with VKCAPTURE=1
I get an [obs-vkcapture] Init 0.3 and then nothing.
Nothing in journal either. No crash no nothing.
Neither wayland nor x.
Any tips on how to debug this?

I am on arch with obs-vkcapture-git from AUR and i se an rx580 with the current mesa driver.
