I contacted the zoom support on 13th July 2016 and tried to lure them into creating a proper PKGBUILD respectively adopting this one, considering they are providing a package over very none standard ways to the Arch Linux community (downloading via a *foreign* site) and not through the official repo or the AUR. However there was little to no progress so far.

@flops

The default configuration seems absolutely reasonable to me and considering that this is what upstream does, I would for now like to stick to it.

Note that there is no need to introduce hooks or any additional configuration on your side though! Just delete the content of the file and as it is a backup file pacman will not overwrite it on a system update. You may however not delete the file completely.

@edh I agree with you that if you install it. In my case it was just a nasty surprise when i installed this package and got global /etc/asound.conf from nowhere as dependency. I'm just not sure that this is right to deliver pulseadio configuration with conference app. It's not a big deal for me, cause if i will reinstall it i've just added a hook that delete this file in my system. It is just a feature request.

@flops

I am struggling to really understand you problem. The package pulseaudio-alsa properly declares /etc/asound.conf, its only file, as backup file and hence will not be overridden by a system update. Further, no package in any officially supported repository contains /etc/asound.conf. Hence, there should be no conflict if you just change the configuration in said file to your needs.

Hi, could you please change pulseadio-alsa package directly to pulseaudio + alsa-plugins? pulseaduio-alsa is just an asound.conf file. And if you need a custom one and zoom, you doomed to resolve conflicts.

Ditto @Maduvi @reptile, sometimes on sharing screen my whole system will freeze and I'll have to be kicked of the zoom call by someone else. This seems to happen when there are more people >3 on the call and not when there are fewer. I've had this issue since around version 2.4, I downgraded to 2.1 which seems to work better, but I thought it would be fixed by now - apparently not!

I am experiencing the same problem as @reptile:

"when I share the screen, sometimes it goes black, and I can see only the mouse pointer"

It also happens that I can't share a Whiteboard because the window is black as well. So I believe both things could be related. Maybe some Xorg or mesa driver configuration I have overlooked. Is anyone able to share a Whiteboard instance?

EDIT: fixed the issue installing and enabling compton. Now I can see a whiteboard instance and I hope Zoom will work just fine.

Note on Friday there's supposed to be fix: https://www.wired.com/story/zoom-flaw-web-server-fix. Sources about the security issue talk about MAC, not quite sure the issue is only a MAC one though (see all references in https://www.reddit.com/r/security/comments/cb054u/if_you_have_installed_zoom_any_website_can_turn). I agree with @edh, it's an upstream issue, not a package issue.

edh commented on 2019-07-09 16:34

Just to clarify, this PKGBUILD is fetching the official package provided by zoom and merely modifies the dependency arrays.

caleb commented on 2019-07-09 12:46

Installers beware, this is a binary package and the upstream provider has recently been caught doing some very dodgy things. Use this package at your own risk.
