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 Please simply click the "Flag package out-of-date" link at top of the page and I will update the package as soon as possible.

The chat and breakout sessions work now. However, screen sharing on Wayland does not work currently (there is no share screen button in the application). Also, it's in they're Coming soon section from here:

I'm having trouble running webex. Launching from the terminal or via the desktop entry nothing happens and checking journalctl shows a coredump. I am running wayland but not sure where to start debugging. Normally I joined meetings from my browser but for some reason some meetings don't allow me to join from the browser.

Any help would be much appreciated,

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
