Downgrade Linux Client to Older Version

LRE64

I'm struggling to find an older version of the Linux Zoom Client to downgrade to.

 

For the last few versions of Zoom, I've had a lot of trouble with screensharing - which isn't a good look in front of my customers.

 

I've filed plenty of error reports each time it's happened but Zoom don't seem interested in doing anything about it.

 

Does anyone know where I can find an older version of the app?  The Zoom download centre doesn't seem to understand the concept of "old versions".

I found out how to downgrade. Older versions are available at links like the following:

 

https://zoom.us/client/5.9.6.2225/zoom_x86_64.rpm

 

Note that you have to know/guess the exact URL in order to find the version to download. The directories aren't browsable, or searchable.

My situation is even worse. I just downloaded the latest version of zoom and it repeatedly crashes on application start. So now I am effectively blocked out of zoom until they fix this bug or they provide an old version to download! 😫

Thanks for the tip @dov .

 

I've also found that the web client is mostly functional.  About the only missing feature that matters to me is the ability to annotate the screen.

Edit: the version numbers appear to be deducible from here (at least until Zoom decide to take that away)

Edit 2: for debian-derivatives, the file name appears to be zoom_amd64.deb, eg: https://zoom.us/client/5.9.6.2225/zoom_amd64.deb

Edit 3: 5.10.3.2778  claims to have fixed the screen sharing issue I was having:

Downgrading works for me... Thanks for the link.
