Hi all, for the last 3 months I've been unable to get any sound/microphone in Zoom. I use https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/alibpulse (a differently packaged form of apulse), as an alternative to the full pulseaudio server. Initially (3 months ago) this worked fine, at which point it didn't (I don't know at what version of Zoom this started to fail, haven't checked). Within my logs it was clear that this has something to do with Zoom not being able to find/use pactl (which is part of libpulse, but not part of apulse).

Well, doing some googling I found that Zoom actually supports ALSA (since version 2.0.57232.0713, see https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/205759689-New-updates-for-Linux). There is not other documentation about this that I could find, but when I looked into ~/.config/zoomus.conf I saw there is a line with system.audio.type=default. Again no documentation on this, so I played with it and when I set it to system.audio.type=alsa Zoom started using ALSA directly, and now I have working audio/microphone in Zoom! I hope people find this useful :)

EDIT 1: typos

@matthias @bidskii @ph2545 I was having the same issue with SSO login failing with the 'referrer policy' warning. In my case this turned out to be an issue with the embedded browser zoom was using to open my SSO login.

I was able to resolve this by editing ~/.config/zoomus.conf with the line embeddedBrowserForSSOLogin=false. After restarting zoom, clicking "sign in with SSO" now opened my default browser (Firefox), and I was able to successfully login.

Found the idea from a somewhat similar GitHub issue: https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/issues/69352

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.

On Manjaro Linux with KDE Plasma 5.20.5, when trying to login using gmail or trying to join meetings by link, it fails because it cannot find application handler for Zoom:

Could not find any application or handler for zoommtg://us02web.zoom.us/join? 
action=join&confno=REMOVED_BY_ME…REMOVED_BY_ME&browser=chrome&t=REMOVED_BY_ME

Edit: Fixed by replacing ~/.local/share/applications/Zoom.desktop with /usr/share/applications/Zoom.desktop

I had problems with microphone being jittery, to a degree that it was hardly usable. It might have been related to pipewire and/or pipewire-pulse with PulseEffects enabled. Bypassing PulseEffects didn't work, though.

What helped me was installing pipewire-alsa and setting system.audio.type=alsa in ~/.config/zoomus.conf, as hv15 suggested. Now the mic is usable again :)

Using "GNOME on Xorg" I suddenly found out that I can't share screen (neither full desktop nor specific window, in both cases only the wallpaper was seen zooming in and out or with glitching window top bar). Switching to "GNOME" (Wayland) solved this.

Hi all, I just rebooted my machine after updating and zoom is majorly glitching out. Specifically clicking on buttons in the GUI doesn't update the window unless I click on the profile or resize the window. I'm using i3 so perhaps that's related. I suspect it's due to updates in either the kernel or other dependencies, as downgrading zoom to the original version does nothing. Has anyone else encountered this problem?

@kouros17

I updated the checksum with the release and can validate that it still corresponds to the package that is distributed at https://zoom.us/download . Please check your network configuration!

I cant build 5.5.2-1 because

==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

My issue right now is ever since 5.5.0-1 build when I request to control a shared session, my session instantly locks up audio cuts out and the session closes. Seems the two updates after have not addressed. Any advice from anyone else that has ran into this? What I have done in the meantime is downgrade back to 5.4 and all is good again.

Since the last 5.4 release (and with both 5.5 ones), I have the problem where whenever I share my screen or an application or the zoom whiteboard, the sharing control disappear after few secs and I'm stuck sharing the same thing until someone else "steals" screen sharing. Anyone got this too?

My laptop has an nvidia card and I'm running X + KDE.

new update includes 'hide self view' option. however, when I click it all the others in the zoom disappear and I only see myself and can't get back to gallery view. Any ideas?
