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.

@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.

@edh, not as far as I'm aware. Here's what I know about this machine, please let me know if this information is useless and what I can provide to be more useful:

Machine: Lenovo Ideapad s400


Distro: Arch

WM: Openbox

DE: None

Sound: ALSA with PulseAudio

Kernel: Linux Baldur 4.9.74-1-lts #1 SMP Wed Jan 3 07:56:32 CET 2018 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Pacman: Pacman v5.0.2 - libalpm v10.0.2

Init: Systemd

Not sure what else would be useful, or if this even is. I'm also on irc under bin_bash if that's a method that may be useful for more in-depth trouble-shooting.

@bin_bash Sorry but I can not reproduce your error. Is there something of note about your build environment?

Can't install at all, get the following error: error: 'zoom-2.0.115900.1201_orig_x86_64.pkg.tar.xz': duplicate target

Broken since my last update from qt 5.9 to qt 5.10:

Linux Client Version is 2.0.115900.1201 Using Qt version 5.10.0 in /usr/lib

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! :)
