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.

Thanks for the feedback. I stripped down the list of dependencies to only include the ones zoom itself states are needed instead of relying on the output of `namcap`.

It appears that at least qt5-webengine, qt5-svg, and gstreamer are not _necessary_ dependencies. I am short on space on /, so I tried installing without the libraries that are included with zoom (check out the .so-files in /opt/zoom), and found that at least these three can be removed without losing functionality. Zoom appears to run without pulseaudio-alsa, but not having it appears to mess up my audio config.

Works like a charm! Thank you very much! :)

Latest version (2.0.98253.0707) I don't have keyboard input when someone shares their screen with me and gives me control. Downgrading one commit before that works. Anyone else with that?

@mbroemme Under Xmonad, all of the windows are perfectly movable, however they do not respond to any dismissal key combo I've ever heard of and never have "cancel" buttons, so I often end up shunting any number of accessory windows to another workspace until I can exit the whole program.

Is it normal that the Zoom windows have no decorations and cannot be moved at all under Fluxbox? Does anybody have the same issue than me? Other Qt5 applications work fine, however they use system libraries.

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.
