I have opened a ticket regarding an issue I had with Zoom crashing on Nvidia when using Wayland session (and also at the same time filing a bug to Nvidia https://github.com/NVIDIA/egl-wayland/issues/63 in which I discovered it is an issue on Zoom's end). The reason I am trying to use on Wayland is because Xwayland is showing a blank window when opened (which turns out is an issue on Zoom's end as well).
The support representative I talked to in the ticket was helpful and tried to get a response from the engineering team (which never came) regarding the response I received from Nvidia in the github issue I linked here.
Direct link to the response I received from Nvidia: https://github.com/NVIDIA/egl-wayland/issues/63#issuecomment-1204312146
So I am raising it here as well just in case it can lead to a more helpful response. I am not expecting an ETA of course but just acknowledgement that it is being worked on.
So I did more digging into QtWayland and QtWebEngine source code and it seems that implementing the fixes to Zoom will be more complicated unless they skip ahead to Qt version 6.3.
The QtWayland PR only begins to appear in 5.15 : https://github.com/qt/qtwayland/blob/5.15/src/client/qwaylandwindow.cpp#L251
and the Chromium PR that made it into QtWebEngine only made it in 6.3: https://github.com/qt/qtwebengine-chromium/blob/9a8385241542eaad285501be6dc66d96a76c20aa/chromium/co...
Fellow "video application used by millions of people" OBS recently upgraded to Qt version 6: https://github.com/obsproject/obs-studio/discussions/6481
Seems good to not be stuck on a deprecated version of a GUI library. I hope this is in the works at Zoom.
I've been having an issue with Zoom crashing and I finally landed on this thread to find the root cause. This is disappointing. Seems like nvidia users on wayland are out of luck if we want to use Zoom.
lolsniperftw - let me know if you ever found a workaround
Thanks for the info. I'll try the browser. There are good reasons to begin switching over to Wayland. Zoom is the only application that is giving me any problems, so I can't justify not switching anymore.
