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.

Pulseaudio should definitely be considered the default. This is also the case for the original package and therefore clearly intended this way by the authors of the software. Hence, I think I will leave the dependency as is for now.

I would suggest that you create a mock package for pulseaudio-also on you system which fulfills the dependency without introducing pulseaudio to you installation.

@edh, it is working fine with plane ALSA, so no need to install pulseaudio at all. I had a problem with multi devices. With just the internal audio and not external USB devices it works just fine, both, though the app test, and through a real conversation.

It means with pulseaudio one might require the pulseaudio-alsa plugin, but only if using pulseaudio. So I would leave as optional if using pulseaudio, given not everyone enables it (like me), but state that the optional dependency is for enabling audio with pulse. I'd really appreciate if you do that, so I don't forget to edit the PKGBUILD on any upgrade. For the testing I manually removed the dependency, so I could avoid having pulseaudio installed and therefore enabled.

Thanks a lot !

@je-vv Is there any other way to get sound without this dependency?

pulseaudio-alsa should be just an optional dependency, since it's required only when pulse is present, and how it's now, pulse audio is forced to get zoom installed.

The issue was with latest mesa

Needed to do some magic to get the version updated because I had some patch version [19.0.1+really+18.3.5-1] which pamac didn't understand anymore. The whole story here:

The Flatpack version worked but it the video was a bit lagging so switching back to native. At least there's an alternative if something happens.

Works with Flatpack. Tx!

Since Zoom is distributed as binary with given dependencies, any change in Archlinux can render Zoom nonfuncional. Hence I would recommend using the Flatpack version which ships the libraries Zoom is depending on:

My Zoom stopped working after system update (I think Zoom was not updated). Could you say what could be wrong? This I get when executing on shell: libEGL warning: DRI2: failed to authenticate libEGL warning: DRI2: failed to open swrast (search paths /usr/lib/dri) libEGL warning: DRI2: failed to open swrast (search paths /usr/lib/dri) libEGL warning: DRI2: failed to authenticate libEGL warning: DRI2: failed to open swrast (search paths /usr/lib/dri) libEGL warning: DRI2: failed to open swrast (search paths /usr/lib/dri) QXcbIntegration: Cannot create platform OpenGL context, neither GLX nor EGL are enabled

edit: how can you make code blocks here? :)

@daenney Thanks for the hint. Done.

With 2.7.x the PKGBUILD can use a smaller list of dependencies as they now seem to bundle the parts of Qt required:

depends=('glib2' 'libxcb' 'libxfixes' 'libxrandr' 'fontconfig' 'mesa' 'libxi'
         'libsm' 'libxrender' 'libpulse' 'libxcomposite' 'libxslt' 'sqlite' 'dbus' 'ibus')
