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.

@geripgeri @gunar Seems that the problem with freezing is gone now (at least for me). Now I have the other problem: when I share the screen, sometimes it goes black, and I can see only the mouse pointer. I have to kill and restart Zoom then. The interesting part is that it happens only in presence of certain user (and I don't know which one). Zoom Support confirmed that it's possible, and asked to make sure that all attendees use the latest version of Zoom... but, in my case, it's impossible :( Have to use other ways to share the screen

Had an issue with zoom dropping a core dump (as well as slack) - turned out it was the upgrade from glibc 27-3 to 28-1 which caused the issue. I rolled back glibc to the previous version and all is well. Here's what I did, might help someone:

@reptile same here. I also confirm that downgrading resolved the issue.

How to downgrade? (I just learned this myself)

yaourt -S zoom
> Edit PKGBUILD? [Y/n]

Then edit PKGBUILD to follow 03ca5cd. This means updating two lines, pkgver and sha512sums. Save, exit, proceed with the installation.

I also had to killall zoom before it worked

I would also make sure to enable notifications for this package if I were you (menu above: "Enable notifications") so you get notified when this is fixed.

@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?
