@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.

@grosjo I had the same issue. Removing zoom completely and reinstalling resolved the problem for me. It looks like the structure in /opt/zoom/ changed, as the path /opt/zoom/QtQuick does not exist anymore after reinstalling.

If I launch $ /opt/zoom/zoom

I get:

/opt/zoom/zoom: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

grosjo commented on 2023-11-25 15:10 (UTC)

Launching after cleaning all setup files (.zoom and .cnfig/zoom.conf), I get

/opt/zoom/zoom : symbol lookup error: /opt/zoom/QtQuick/Controls.2/ undefined symbol: _ZN13QQmlDirParserC1Ev, version Qt_5_PRIVATE_API Something went wrong while running zoom, exit code is 127. ZoomLauncher exit.

Echoing, @Phi11ip. On a fresh install, Zoom crashes if qt5-webengine is not installed. It needs to be changed to a required dependency.

ekce commented on 2023-11-09 20:23 (UTC)

Zoom now requires you to have version 5.13.5 or higher in order to log in.

@Trilby I will add the mentioned dependencies with the next release.

EDIT: at-spi2-core is already a dependency of gtk3.

Trilby commented on 2023-10-29 17:30 (UTC)

This is missing dependency listings for gtk3 and at-spi2-core. Zoom will not even start without these installed.

Phi11ip commented on 2023-10-10 13:31 (UTC)

qt5 may no longer be an "optional" dependency. I tried installing Zoom yesterday with this AUR and got a crash on startup. Logs showed this error:

This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

Using version 5.16.2-1 I can not escape from minimized video. When attempting to do this, the animation back to full screen plays but is just a black window. The minimized video controls reappear at their previous location.

Setting enableMiniWindow to false in ~/.config/zoomus.conf is a work around that allows you to minimize zoom, but it does not address the fact that the mini window is broken.

chrisjbillington commented on 2023-09-22 00:44 (UTC)

@tsangares the mini window shouldn't appear at all if you disable it with the config setting. You do need to restart zoom for it to take effect though, perhaps you didn't restart it?
