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.

@iTanguy I wrote a mail to the zoom support team about this. Thanks for the heads-up.

License file is missing from the Arch package; when "custom" is used, the packaging should include a copy of the license.

Note that apparently it's not in the archive I can download from their web site; but I don't know how to report to Zoom directly.

I'm still having trouble as of latest build running zoom under gnome-wayland. Not sure if this is a qt bug or a zoom bug, but on launch I get:

ZoomLauncher started.
Zoom not exist at current directory - /home/matt
Zoom path is: /opt/zoom
cmd line: 
CreateReportChannel bp_server_fd=4
$HOME = /home/matt 
export SSB_HOME=/home/matt/.zoom; export QSG_INFO=1; export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/zoom; export BREAKPAD_CLIENT_FD=3; /opt/zoom/zoom "" 
zoom started.
Client: Breakpad is using Client-Server Mode! client fd = 3
This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "wayland"
in "".

Available platform plugins are: eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, vnc, xcb.

Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

Something went wrong while running zoom,exit code is 134.
ZoomLauncher exit.

prepending QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland doesn't change the output, even though qt5-wayland is installed.

Thanks for any hints!

@ambantis Sounds like a bug in zoom. Can you report this upstream?

ambantis commented on 2020-02-04 04:21

Got this warning when creating a local copy of the desktop file:

λ ~/ desktop-file-install --dir=/home/ambantis/.local/share/applications /usr/share/applications/Zoom.desktop
/home/ambantis/.local/share/applications/Zoom.desktop: error: (will be fatal in the future): value "Zoom.png" for key "Icon" in group "Desktop Entry" is an icon name with an extension, but there should be no extension as described in the Icon Theme Specification if the value is not an absolute path

Removing the extension in my local copy, it launches fine.

@diogobaeder I'm having the same issue (no support for wayland, qt doesn't launch), did you find a fix?

I tried close to every version back to 3.0.301026.0930 This still crashes for me, the kernel log is :

@projectgus: it also crashes for me, with the same problems you mentioned. Looked it up and zoom seems to crash the GPU.

[drm:gen8_reset_engines [i915]] ERROR rcs0 reset request timed out: {request: 00000001, RESET_CTL: 00000001} Asynchronous wait on fence i915:xfwm4[1072]:6e584 timed out (hint:intel_atomic_commit_ready+0x0/0x50 [i915])

After throwing that the system itself tries to reset the GPU, but can't.

Also 3.5.330166.1202-1 needs double of the resources which 3.0.317369.1110-1 is using, a bit weird.

@projectgus, what I'm getting is the mouse not responding. Using LXQt + KWin. But X is not frozen, and the keybord keeps working fine, but it's uncomfortable not to be able to select or click on anything.

projectgus commented on 2019-12-11 09:19

Is anyone else having problems with the X11 session freezing on latest Zoom (3.5.330166.1202-1)? I find after a few minutes on a video call, the entire X session including the mouse cursor stops responding. Parts of the display update once every 2-3 minutes, some parts never update. It never seems to recover. Haven't seen this in any other circumstances.

Have rolled back to 3.0.317369.1110-1 which is fine so far.

Haven't bothered reporting to Zoom yet as it might be some unique quirk of my X11/hardware/desktop setup, but thought I'd ask if anyone else was seeing it.
