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.

@reptile Thanks!

@geripgeri I can only confirm that this problem is present not only for you, I get the same behavior. I have a request to Zoom Support regarding this, I'll let you know the outcome.

When I share my screen the whole application freezes, all the controls are unresponsive. This feature was working for me for a long time. There is no error message about this issue when I run it on the console.

I downgraded to version 2.1.103753.0521 (git commit 03ca5cd) and the screen sharing works again.

Do you Guys have any idea what went wrong? Is this an application bug or Arch related?

For those looking to fix DPI for Zoom: I just added it to the apps list at

To make it permanent, here's how:

  1. Copy /usr/share/applications/Zoom.desktop to your ~/.local/share/applications/
  2. At the Exec command, prepend env QT_SCALE_FACTOR=2.

@edh, thanks! Downgrading "mesa" fixed the problem

@reptile Zoom starts up fine in a clean container with an up-to-date system.

You might want to roll-back the entire update and see whether that helps. If it does, partially update each package one by one and see where things break down.

Blatant self-promotion: To facilitate the downgrade process you may want to use a small script like e.g. downgrade :D

After the latest system upgrade, zoom just fails to launch. The output says "zoom started.", but nothing happens. Downgrading zoom back doesn't help. It's something with other parts of the system, but I don't know what exactly, no errors in output... Maybe someone had similar issue?

@danielbruce - Thank you, your workaround works great!

If you're still having seg fault issues, this fixed it for me: touch ~/.config/zoomus.conf.

@prosoitos I had the exact same problem with the same error message yesterday. After using git to checkout the previous version (the one from Feb 8) and reinstalling, zoom launches and seems to work fine (though I didn't make any calls yet). So I'm using the Feb 8 version now.

In addition to the error posted by prosoitos, using journalctl I can see the following records related to the zoom segfault:
