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.

@lujipeka Surely this is not an ideal solution and is due to the odd nature of the PKGBUILD but in the end the error boils down to a poor AUR package manager decision. The only recommendation I can give you is to either use a proper helper or build it from source.

I have this error when trying to install zoom on my computer loading packages... error: 'zoom-2.0.115900.1201_orig_x86_64.pkg.tar.xz': duplicate target

Probably not related to packaging, but I'm getting quite frequent hangs. Every 20 minutes or so performance gets quickly terrible to the point that the application is completely unresponsive. If I don't kill it fast enough sometimes it even brought down my entire system. I'm wondering if anyone else has been experiencing this and whether there is any workaround.

@daurnimator Thanks, updated!

@paulodiovani It looks like qt5-webkit has been superseded by qt5-webengine and I removed the dependency for now. Please let me know whether this assessment is accurate and SSO login is still working for you.

Missing dependency on libxss

@paulodiovani Thanks for the hint. I merely copied the dependency field from the official package and did not check for any additional ones.

Zoom depends on qt5-webkit to display webpages (e.g. SSO Login)

@wfleming I did many changes to my drivers, switching from open to closed and at some point it ended up working. My issue was indeed not related to QT but rather to the drivers.

@pgmillon I ran into the same thing and also suspected the qt5 version change as the culprit, but I used downgrade to revert my qt5* packages to 5.9.3, and was still seeing the same error. Did you have any luck working around this issue?

EDIT: qt is almost certainly a red herring since it's not a dep of this package: mesa is the likely culprit since that's being used for OpenGL and was also updated recently. I also tried downgrading mesa to 17.3.3 & 17.3.1, and had no luck.

Unfortunately I am quite busy during the day and am therefore not available on IRC most of the time (always?).

Concerning you provided information: When troubleshooting such a task it is much more likely that something about your software setup led to the problem. I would recommend you to try building the package again preferably in a clean chroot or if this should be to cumbersome just by hand locally using the following command (assuming you have cower installed): cower -d zoom && cd zoom && makepkg -si.

As a workaround you may as well simply install the package from upstream directly using curl -O <> && pacman -U zoom_x86_64.pkg.tar.xz.
