HID Support for Linux



I see at that HID support is only for macOS and Windows. 

When will Linux be supported for HID events, even unofficially? I have a Jabra 410 speakerphone and when I mute/unmute it, the status is not reflected in Zoom and everyone always thinks I am unmuted. I don't want to have to mute two things, it is a bad UX with a speakerphone on Linux for me right now and is frustrating. 



I see further down on 

To determine support on Linux, visit the manufacturers' product pages using the links below. You can also visit the support site of your Linux distribution.

The Jabra 410 support page, is a bit vague to me though: 

In general, Linux supports Jabra USB audio devices at the audio level only, and further integration is dependent on the softphone and its client software. This means that basic audio should be enabled, and the system solution provider is responsible for additional functionality such as call control for the connected audio device.


Selected Linux supported softphones do support call control with Jabra USB audio devices. Refer to the specifications of the Linux operating system for details about USB audio and call control support.


So I looked at some other manufacturers linked from the support page and found that the Logitech P710E,, claims official Linux support:


  • Windows® Vista, 7, 8 (32-bit or 64-bit), 10 Or Later
  • macOS® X 10.6 or later
  • Linux®


So, now I am wondering if anyone can confirm HID support works with Zoom on the Logitech P710E. I am fine buying another speakerphone to get this feature.
