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.

@caleb the binary zoom from AUR for me does not have any problems; both 5.4.56259.1207 that I am using now, and the previous version, that I had to use when zoom-system-qt became unusable.

anyway, is there any way we can debug this?

@coxackie There is another release out but it is just as broken for me as the current one here. I still have to use 5.4.53391.1108 myself. I'm tempted to post the update anyway since the current version is known to be bad for many/most people and if anyone does try to debug it the current release is probably the place to start.

For the record, the binary zoom package without the library removals that this package does gives me the same trouble, so I don't think our packaging is so bad here as much as zoom themselves have made some breaking change.

sooooo... is there going to be any effort to fix this for the newer releases? There is another one out. Is it impossible to debug what is going wrong?

Hi @netcrusher, zoom works just fine without pulse, and it's supported upstream without pulse. However on the PKGBUILD pulseaudio-alsa is a hard dependency. Could you please make it optional instead?

BTW, no UI at all yet, as indicated by @caleb...

netcrusher commented on 2020-12-02 12:33

@caleb: I thought I tested it briefly, but later noticed I had a stale binary around in /usr/bin. To be honest I also didn't expect breakage to occur on this scale due to a minor update.

I was hoping the issues would resolve themselves with a later update, but at this point I think it might be appropriate to perform a "false update" as a stop-gap solution, i.e. releasing 5.4.54779.1115-2 with the download set to 5.4.53391.1108. What do you think caleb?

@caleb Me too UI is not showing up...

alerque commented on 2020-11-27 14:50

@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?

mardab commented on 2020-11-27 10:46

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

coxackie commented on 2020-11-18 18:05

@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...

netcrusher commented on 2020-11-18 16:57

@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.
