The zoom links contain both room info and password; so you can copy/paste those parts seperately to the zoom join window; is what I'm doing. (For people that don't use firefox.)

Ah, that's nice. I used the unjailed Zoom to log in and then switched to this one, where I appeared as already logged in.

BTW I got it working by visiting https://<SSO Zoom domain>/saml/login?from=desktop in Firefox. (Sometimes you need to do this twice.) This generates a zoommtg link which also works with the firejail version.

@snowball: The problem seems to be the way that the browser is invoked. Zoom stores a file in ~/.cache/kioexec/krun/ and the path is then passed to the browser. The file doesn't actually exist where it has supposedly been stored. This could actually be the result of sandboxing the application.

@mod20: I'm not sure, sorry. I don't have access to a SSO-enabled Zoom account to test with. If you want to submit a bug or patch upstream, this is the Firejail profile for Zoom:

Is this working with SSO login? Couldn't get it to work using neither Firefox or Chrome...

@snowball I use a WM (bspwm); mainly access icons through gtk3 app (rofi). Might be gtk related.

@fordprefect as just a wrapper around a launcher; this package is appropriate to be hosted on AUR. There are very similar approaches (like pacman-cleanup-hook, or reflector-timer on the top of my head) that don't have external sources. For couple lines of text; having an external repository would just be extra layers of abstraction.

@bbaserdem Updated. Out of curiosity, what desktop environment are you using? I don't have that issue on XFCE4.

@fordprefect I'd prefer not to, sorry. If someone else with experience maintaining packages wishes to do so, I don't mind handing over maintainership.

The zoom official pkg links the desktop launcher icon to Zoom.png but XDG specification does not support icon filetypes. If you change the line in ZoomFirejail.desktop from Icon=Zoom.png to Icon=Zoom; it will display the proper icon. Currently; it cannot find the icon and displays an empty icon. The zoom pkgbuild already includes this patch.

Thanks for maintaining this useful package! I could not find a reference but as far as I understand it is not welcome to host package sources directly in the AUR git for several reasons, even for very small code snippets. Could you move your stuff to a public hosting e.g. a Github project? Positive side effect would be easier reuse in other distros.
