If the checksums do not match with the downloaded files, Cisco may have updated the Webex package. Please simply click the "Flag package out-of-date" link at top of the page and I will update the package as soon as possible.

I've managed to downgrade to the lastest version with working screen sharing (thanks @AlexanderS), but webex keeps updating itself, is there any way to block this from happening? (I didn't made any yay update or pacman sync)

@nilpernil: You may need to delete the newer version from $HOME/.local/share/Webex*.

I need a little bit of help, I tried several times to downgrade the webex pkg with makepkg and pacman -U, installing the previous version when the screen sharing works, but everytime I start again webex and check the version, the version is 42.10 and the login info is still saved, I am trying to install the 42.7 version.

I think there should be some config files that with pacman -Rs there are not being deleted, can anyone help me finding what I am forgeting? thanks :(

KDE Wayland a couple of things I have done.

Workaround 1 - Launch once and login via X11, this gets around login blank screen issue. (we use SAML duo not sure if this is a caus or not)

Fix: XDG_SESSION_TYPE=x11 webex

Subsequent launches via the normal shortcut "Wayland" should be fine.

Workaround 2 - The icon in the task manager is the generic Wayland logo.

Fix: sudo cp /usr/share/applications/webex.desktop /usr/share/applications/CiscoCollabHost.desktop

Read more about what this is doing here.

@zachcheatham: The only 'workaround' I could come up with was a downgrade to the previous version.

I am also unable to share my screen anymore with the latest version on Gnome+Wayland. Has anyone found a workaround?

Hey everybody,

I am running Gnome/Wayland and after the upgrade to 42.10 (introduced by ed48b12eaa3f) I am not able to share my screen anymore. The 'Share' button simply doesn't show up in meetings/calls. I initially thought this is a Wayland issue, but for testing purposes I temporarily switched to Cinnamon (which is using Wayland) and sharing works flawlessly.

So this seems to be an issue with the combination Gnome, Wayland and Webex. Is anybody seeing this as well? Any hints on possible workarounds other than switching to X11? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

After entering my company email address, I get redirected to the white blank screen/page, and cannot log in.

More than happy to provide more details.

Tested on 5.10.135 and 5.15.60 MANJARO using X11 KDE

For those who cannot sign-in on Wayland (ex. sway) sessions, try:

env -u WAYLAND_DISPLAY webex

After checking namcap these are the only libraries needed but not bundled: 'libnotify' 'libpulse' 'mesa' # libgbm 'libxss' 'at-spi2-atk' 'libxrandr'
