@edh - That's not the answer I was hoping for (I was really hoping we could get it to launch without xwayland), but at least I know I'm not missing something.

Some ~/.config/zoomus.conf updates:

  • SSO Login: I don't have qt5-webengine installed, and the ebeddedBrowserForSSOLogin line doesn't exist in my config zoomus.conf. SSO login works just fine (issues with Firefox containers aside).
  • Audio: I am using Pipewire via pipewire-pulse. defaulted to alsa for me (or I changed it without realizing it). I probably could have installed pipewire-alsa and fixed my issues, but I set system.autio.type=pulse (a lucky guess) and this worked. This should work for anyone using straight PulseAudio as well.

If anyone finds documentation on ~/.config/zoomus.conf, please let us know.

I contacted the zoom support on 13th July 2016 and tried to lure them into creating a proper PKGBUILD respectively adopting this one, considering they are providing a package over very none standard ways to the Arch Linux community (downloading via a *foreign* site) and not through the official repo or the AUR. However there was little to no progress so far.

I downgraded to 6.0.12-1 and sharing is working, even on KDE Plasma 6.1.

Thanks @redmnic. I was just about to mention the sharing issues. There also is a thread in the Zoom forums about this:

The latest issues with screen sharing seem to stem from xdg-desktop-portal. I made some partial progress: As other noted, setting XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=gome restores the dialog, but there are no sharing options. Logs show Zoom looks for /usr/libexec/xdg-desktop-portal (arch has it under /usr/lib). Adding a corresponding symlink /usr/libexec/xdg-desktop-portal -> /usr/lib/xdg... restores the options as well. But they don't work for me (with sway). The second I select an option an try to share I get this in the logs: "ListModel2<T, Key>::getItemIndex(): key not exists!" (SIC) I got no further for now. Posting in the hopes that it helps someone with more xdg-desktop-portal and Zoom foo.

Thank you very much robbystk for posting this solution. It works for me

@ronw Yeah, looks like Zoom has again arbitrarily added restrictions for other DEs.

I tried editing the .config/zoomus.conf file and set enableWaylandShare=true but that didn't have any effect.

I also set xwayland=false which resulted in zoom crashing when trying to screen share.

I tried setting XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=gnome and it did get rid of the error message and showed the screen share window. But no option to actually share screen. Only whiteboard visible.

I upgraded to 6.1.0-1 and trying to share my screen is displaying the window that only GNOME is supported on Wayland.

I run KDE Plasma and haven't seen that for at least the last couple of versions.

fwiw, 6.1.0-1 is playing well with wayland, even without xwayland. It is a nice change of pace.

Sorry everybody, I'm currently away from my laptop for one more week but will update the package at the end of next week. For security reasons my keys are only stored on my laptop.

@lunasophia I'm sorry, I'm new to AUR. The package was already flagged out of date and I don't know if there's a way to add info to the out of date "reason".

@leonkacowicz @meithan This is what the flag out of date feature is for; commenting here only makes it harder to find legitimate discussion.
