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.

In case anyone finds it helpful, I was having issues with screensharing. Namely, when I shared my screen, participants just saw green where my window should be.

First, I upgraded my kernel from 4.7.6 to the latest 4.11.2. This caused the green to instead appear black to participants. This is essentially because of wayland. I had originally set xorg as the default, but this has been reset at some point (perhaps during the kernel upgrade or perhaps earlier).

Switching to Xorg makes zoom work perfectly.

Latest version, for me at least, kills the non-primary window from displaying anything. It just remains black so I'm unable to see what's being shared (or the primary speaker when no one is sharing.) I don't see anything super incriminating in the logs so I'm unsure what's causing it.

Downgrading to the last available version seems to solve the problem.

Thanks for the update. I changed the pkgver back to the current release. Please be sure to remove the remaining source in your SRCDEST if necessary.

@edh: Upstream updated now, acc. to Zoom support ...

Their package file seams to be corrupted. I will roll back for now. Please be sure to file a bug on their website.

The v4l2loopback kernel module appears to be required for Desktop (not application window) sharing.

@edh Screen capture has stopped working only with wayland (i.e. GNOME). Xorg works but generally crashes. I had those extra packages installed already and the new package has not fixed the issue. Most likely this is an upstream problem.

I can not reproduce your problem. The packages I build all have 755 as permission settings for the listed directory.
Furthermore I would recommend against changing the mode bits of those directories since 755 is used by probably all other packages. Please try building the package yourself without an AUR helper. Should this still not work build without cleaning up the pkg directory, change the permissions there and then repackage. The last recommendation is a little tricky but should work for sure.

I've been getting a series of permissions errors when I try installing the latest update. It says that my filesystem is using 755 and the package wants 775. Is it safe to change the permissions in the directories listed?
