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?
I am also facing the same issue I updated my ubuntu yesterday and when I want to share my screen there is only one option in basic WHITEBOARD and in the advance options there is a portion share, I tried with portion share but it only shows a black screen, but I am able to see to my video during screen share on the black screen
Zoom community please tell the solution of the problem, is this from your side or the Ubuntu side. Thank you
My name is Brandon. Thanks for joining the Zoom Community! This is a known issue as others have described. Zoom has created a Support article regarding this issue here https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/6634039380877. This article was created to keep everyone up to date on any changes or any future fixes.
I hope that this helps.
I have the same problem, also on Ubuntu 22.04 on Wayland. Screen Sharing used to work on Ubuntu 21.10 , also on Wayland (but only for the whole desktop, not single app windows), but not on KDE Wayland. On Xorg it always works, but it is extremely painful to switch the display server every time just to open a Zoom meeting. I would appreciate a timely solution to this problem.
One workaround I found is to join the meeting from a browser (Chrome and Firefox both work), then you can share the whole desktop or single windows. This is good enough for the time being, but not very comfortable and has higher system load than the standalone Zoom app.
Same thing happened with me. I wanted to share the screen and record it. It Just didn't show any option except whiteboard. It allowed me to share part of screen. When I watched the recording it showed nothing but just blank screen. Because of this I switched back to Ubuntu 20.04 immediately...!
i am able to start screen share but while clicking on the panel for various options like stop screen share or share other window or even trying to mute or unmute the zoom app freezes and asks to either wait or force quit the application and sometimes it just crashes the whole application. also i dont think there is an option to share sound while sharing the screen.
