@coxackie: Thanks for the report. I just noticed the same issue on my system and I'll try to investigate.

Does anyone else have a problem with the latest update (5.4.54779.1115-1)? When launched, I can only see the tray icon with a menu, but nothing happens upon pressing any of the entries.

@mnabid I hadn't noticed the /opt/zoom/version.txt file, I'd looked in-app and seen the .1 scheme. Given that file (not to mention other distros) it does sound like the most official think anyway and .1 (or whatever it changes to) is just and end user alias for some specific build numbers. Thanks for the research.

Just wanted to put my two cents in.

I looked into the official Debian and Arch binaries and both of them show the package version as 5.4.53350.1027. /opt/zoom/version.txt shows the same. I think it'd be best to follow the version scheme in the official package, unless the Zoom devs change it.

@netcrusher I updated the version fetcher to work with the current scheme, but I think the scheme is wrong. No great foul but this should be (note the .1). Unfortunately fixing this would require adding an epoch to the build. For sure the next time the minor version changes can we take the chance to fix our version scheme?

It looks like as of the most recent version you still need to remove rm -f{,.*} from the PKGBUILD, but the workaround from @mnabid (ln -sfv /usr/lib/ also needs to be removed. I was getting no webcam today until I rebuilt the package with both items commented out.

coxackie commented on 2020-10-16 11:54

hmmm... I still get a black screen for video without the LD_PRELOAD workaround, even after the latest update. Anyone else, or am I the only one?

EDIT: Interestingly, if I instead remove rm -f{,.*} from the PKGBUILD as was originally suggested by @mnabid and use the bundled, it works.

Thanks @mnabid. I've implemented that patch in the latest release. It worked for me so that makes three out of three of us. If it turns out to be a problem later if versions stop being compatible or whatever we can try reverting.

I can confirm that mnbaid 's fix solved my webcam issue. Also, the LD_PRELOAD workaround caused me to loose the ability to open zoom links from the browser, which works well with the fix as well.

Thank you!

Since my last comment, I thought it makes more sense if we use the system (as zoom-system-qt uses system Qt libraries instead of the provided ones).

@caleb, here are the changes I made.
