@netcrusher 5.4.54779.1115 is completely broken for me too, I don't get any UI at all across 5 systems tried (3 different DEs). Did it actually work for you or was that a blind bump?

Woukd you mind checking for regressions before release? 5.4.54779.1115 has completely broken UI.

@netcrusher apologies, I did not mean that the present error is related to lack of wayland dependencies. The system wayland libraries are also absent in 5.4.53391.1108-1, but it does work on Xorg, something that 5.4.54779.1115-1 fails to do. I just meant that, in order to reflect the actual package, shouldn't the necessary qt5-wayland libraries also be included as dependencies? Right now, they do not even appear as optional dependencies...

@coxackie: I don't think the problem is related to missing qt5-wayland. If you don't have qt5-wayland installed and still try to launch Zoom with QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland-egl, you should experience an error during early startup.

@michaldybczak: I agree regarding system library versions.

patchelf actually was a make dependencies for a few months and is not required to run Zoom. Maybe you recently cleaned up your systems, removing orphaned packages in the process?

If you'd like to see more output and/or help in the troubleshooting process, try running something like QML_IMPORT_TRACE=1 QSG_INFO=1 strace -e trace=%file -ff -DD /opt/zoom/zoom and look for the needle in the haystack...

There are also wayland-related Qt libraries that are being removed from the package, as I can see from the PKGBUILD. Shouldn't the equivalent system Qt wayland libraries be installed?

Can "pulseaudio-alsa" be moved to optdepends please? Zoom supports plain ALSA audio on GNU+Linux, so no need to make pulseaudio plugin hard required. Thanks !

I have the same problem. It launches only icon in the tray and zoom doesn't really work. I had to downgrade it to previous version. I don't think it's a matter of too new libraries, because the issue would show up after system update, not zoom-qt update and the old version works still fine. I noticed that the new version had another requirement which was auto-installed: patchelf. So maybe patchelf's version or libraries are too new? The worst part is, that there is no output in the terminal, so we have no clue what is happening.

@coxackie: Yep, I noticed that as well. The size increase is solely from the actual zoom binary which went from ~63MB to ~73MB.

I've now spent a considerable time trying to debug this issue, but so far I couldn't narrow down a cause. My guess would be that the included QML files are somehow incompatible with newer system Qt libraries (even though the version difference hasn't been an issue previously). It seems that at some point the process just waits for something to happen, but I couldn't find out what it is actually waiting for.

For now, my advice would be not updating to 5.4.54779.1115-1 or, if you already installed the update, downgrading to the previous version 5.4.53391.1108-1, which still works fine for me.

@netcrusher: I did notice that the package size increased for some 8MB or so. Maybe more libraries were introduced in the bundle? I am sure you guys will figure it out.
