Just a quick note: If you have fish as your default shell, zoom-firejail fails to launch (syntax error at --), but after a quick chsh and re-login it works.

Edit: This has been fixed upstream, and looks to be released in firejail 0.9.74, see for details.

@snowball Sure, I would love to.

@flylightning Thanks for the patch! I've updated the package with your changes.

Would you be interested in taking ownership of this package? I no longer use it.

I needed to add --ignore=caps.keep to get my camera to show up, as per this issue. Anyone else experiencing this?

Deresiant commented on 2022-04-20 09:49 (UTC)

If i download something in the firejail, where is it on the host filesystem?

The zoom links contain both room info and password; so you can copy/paste those parts seperately to the zoom join window; is what I'm doing. (For people that don't use firefox.)

j0hannes commented on 2021-01-20 09:57 (UTC)

Ah, that's nice. I used the unjailed Zoom to log in and then switched to this one, where I appeared as already logged in.

mod20 commented on 2021-01-20 08:08 (UTC)

BTW I got it working by visiting https://<SSO Zoom domain>/saml/login?from=desktop in Firefox. (Sometimes you need to do this twice.) This generates a zoommtg link which also works with the firejail version.

@snowball: The problem seems to be the way that the browser is invoked. Zoom stores a file in ~/.cache/kioexec/krun/ and the path is then passed to the browser. The file doesn't actually exist where it has supposedly been stored. This could actually be the result of sandboxing the application.
