The latest Zoom client not start on Linux


I'm on Arch Linux with latest KDE, Wayland, and Nvidia proprietary drivers.

Logs at:



Please download the install package from the link provided by the Support team.
Install the package as required. In most versions you will have a Software Center to install from. Please see our installation procedures for different file types and variants of Linux.
Log into the new Linux client and run the same test case to duplicate the issue.
End the meeting.
Open your terminal and navigate to the Log folder by inputting:
cd ~/.zoom
Compress the log folder. To compress the log files on Linux (in this example Ubuntu 14.04), run the following command in terminal:
tar -cvvf logs.tar logs

For convenience sake in sending us the files, you may want to move the newly compressed file. The following terminal command moves the newly compressed log folder to the Documents folder:
mv logs.tar /home/[Your Name]/Documents

Send us the zipped log or upload to Dropbox/Google Drive and send us the link in your support ticket.
After sending the logs, uninstall the troubleshooting version of Zoom and re-install from the Downloads page.
