I contacted the zoom support at 13th July and have been in a discussion since then.
I 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.

Sorry flagged this as out of date because the client is claiming there is a newer version, and when I look at my `pacman -Qi zoom` it shows 2.0.57232.0713-2.

However, clearly this package is using the most recent version, 2.0.63547.0830.

Has anyone tried using https://zoom.us/client/latest/zoom_2.0.57232.0713_x86_64.pkg.tar.xz? Not sure if this was just an oversight but it may help.

a bit out of topic here but do you guys know if there's any way to join a conference via command line? all I found on the internet was docs for doing it trough the UI, zoom -h or zoom --help doesn't tell anything either

@tad
Your argument seems reasonable. I altered the dependency array according to your suggestions but added a couple of qt5 dependencies and gstreamer.

edh, check here: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/204206269-Linux-Installation

I ran through namcap with the dependencies listed and it works fine on qt5. In fact it's the only way to get HiDPI support.

@tad
Thanks for the hint about the static source link. I altered the PKGBUILD accordingly.
However I am not so sure about the dependencies you listed. The current dependencies are directly taken from the upstream package with no modifications, therefore I expect that the developers in one or the other way rely on each of them.

tad commented on 2016-08-06 07:17

I took a moment to clean up some dependencies, as they have changed. qt4 is no longer needed, for example.

depends=(
'glib2'
'gstreamer'
'libxcb'
'xcb-util-image'
'fontconfig'
'mesa'
'libxi'
'libsm'
'libxrender'
'libpulse'
'libxcomposite'
'libxslt'
'sqlite'
'xcb-util-keysyms'
)

This works:

source_i686=("https://zoom.us/client/{$pkgver}/zoom_${pkgver}_i386.deb")
source_x86_64=("https://zoom.us/client/{$pkgver}/zoom_${pkgver}_amd64.deb")

Thanks for flagging the package. Unfortunately the zoom release blog is not updated timely, plus they don't use static links for one release but prefer to break the existing link each time a new release is introduced.
