Gnome Network displays No Wif P2P Adapter

Gnome network display can find a Wi-Fi P2P adapter. How do I install a Wi-Fi P2P adapter?

First of all you need WiFi running on your device.

Second you will need a device in your network who knows miracast. Just then you will get a list of available video sinks.

Important:
This is an experimental implementation of Wi-Fi Display (aka Miracast).

  1. I’m typing this on the laptop I want to use, so I guess wifi is working :smiley:
  2. There is no list of devices (as there is o p2p driver
  3. on Microsoft Windows 10 I can connect to the TV without a hitch
    output from nmcli device:

not sure what I should do with gitlab repo. I have gnome-network-displays installed.

It says

Please verify that Wi-Fi is enabled (check) and Wi-Fi P2P operations are available in both NetworkManager and wpa_supplicant.

I have neither created nor touched those files so Iḿ unclear what is expected of me here.

I am joining this thread as I have:

Only after discover this topic, I do sudo dnf install gnome-network-display, then I also got the same error message from gnome-network-display.

Then after some Google Search, I got:

This command from the above link iw <dev> interface add p2p0 type managed give me a extra p2p0 device as managed.

$ iw dev
phy#0
	Interface p2p0
		ifindex 5
		wdev 0x2
		addr 96:73:8e:4f:d2:00

		ssid homewifi
		type managed

		txpower 15.00 dBm

Then I don’t know how to proceed further.

I am now studying this topic:

And will report back any progress here.
