I get the following error when I try to screenshare on Wayland. Anyone have any solutions?

To flagger @billypilgrim and all curious: I've tested the current upstream release 5.5.7011.0206 and it has the same systemic problem we've seen with everything since 5.4.53391.1108. If anybody finds a way to make it usable know that we're open to fixing this up, we just haven't figured out how to make it work yet.

I'm unflagging again as this is the last known viable release for this method.

@je-vv Sadly, no. I just bumped and built 5.5.6955.0131 and have the same unresolved trouble trying to run it that we've been seeing.

@caleb and @netcrusher, how about 5.5.0? Does it work with system Qt libs?

caleb commented on 2020-12-29 21:20

For the record I've just checked the 5.4.57450.1220 release and have the same issues making it absolutely unusable against system Qt libraries.

Oh, didn't know that. Will look for it. AUR is always preferred over snaps or flatpacks. Thanks for the info.

caleb commented on 2020-12-19 10:43

@michaldybczak Snap? Okay whatever, but you know there is a zoom package in the AUR too that has the same binary as this but with bundled libraries right?

michaldybczak commented on 2020-12-17 23:23

In that case, I'm switching to snap. I'll gladly switch over again when this issue is solved. In a way, it's good we have alternative formats so we can wait out some occasional AUR issues :). Good luck with solving this mystery. Or maybe it will fix itself with time :D.

I spent a good deal of time hacking an this and getting infuriated at the lack of debug info. One tip for anybody else trying to debug is that after building and installing this package you can first run zoom and let it hang with no interface, then run /opt/zoom/ZoomLauncher to launch a second instance that will error because it finds the first instance running, but it also outputs debug messages about linked library errors, something I haven't gotten any other way. This seems to verify what SO modules are working and which aren't.

Still no luck getting it to run. I ended up reposting the last known working version as the current PKGBUILD. If you want the newer version use the zoom package with bundled libraries until we get this sorted out.

@caleb I am on x11 too. to be honest, if people could not run the recent versions of zoom, the comments on the zoom AUR package would be avalanching by now. Maybe you should try clearing all the config files, etc, that you are using, and then try again.

anyway, after briefly playing around, if one removes any of libQt5*.so{,.*}, libicu*.so{,.*}, {egldevice,xcbgl}integrations, imageformats and platforms there are problems. Others are OK to be removed, but the gain is minimal, as it is the first two that contain most of the weight.
