Unable to screen share in ubuntu 22.04

I installed zoom on my freshly installed ubuntu 22.04 LTS and I faced a issue where i was only able to share whiteboard instead of my screen and there is no option other than that. How can i enable screen share? Is there any problem because ubuntu adopted wayland instead of xorg?

Try opening session with XORG. When starting your session, pick your user and then on the bottm right there is a configuration wheel, choose XORG. Then, my problem was solved.

The options I have on the gear icon of the login screen are: "Ubuntu Wayland", "Ubuntu", "GNOME Classic Wayland" and "GNOME Classic". I have been using "Ubuntu". I have tried "GNOME Classic" as well.

On Ubuntu 23.10.  Installed Zoom 5.16.6 from the snap and ran into this issue.
Uninstalled the snap and then installed the 5.16.10 .deb from the Zoom download center

and sharing worked!
