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.

Why this package depends on ibus?

Edit:sorry this is duplicate

edh commented on 2021-05-15 08:02

@sonarypt Please contact the zoom support on this matter. I will remove it from the dependency array of it is not listed as hard dependency by upstream.

Please remove ibus as dependency from this package! For fcitx users: sudo pacman -Rdd ibus as it conflicts with your fcitx.

I have problems with annotating screen sharings of others for a few months now. Using LXQt from aur with KWin from aur. The whole second window with the screen share goes black, an overlay which only goes away if the second window disappears (e.g. switch to some room or closing/opening zoom).

I am switching to zoom-system-qt now, maybe this helps me for now.

@aragon123 That sounds really strange and is not the case for me.

I had a problem with Zoom crashing when the electron [1] package was missing, after installing this, Zoom does not crash anymore.

Like hv15 commented, I tried pipewire instead of alsa and now I can use my bluetooth earphones with mic

@dobedobedo, @angelsl As mentioned in a previous comment, ibus was added to the list of hard-dependencies by the folks at zoom.

Most Zoom functionality is good for me, but I have a persistent issue where participants cannot see annotations when I'm the one sharing.

  • I can annotate when others share.
  • I can annotate when using the whiteboard.
  • But Zoom isn't capturing the annotation overlay when I'm sharing.

Any ideas? Using i3wm here.

May I ask what does ibus do in this package? I remove it from PKGBUILD and it still works.
