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?
2022-04-25 05:58 AM
Same problem here with latest zoom version (5.10.4) on ubuntu 22.04. LTS. No screens/apps displayed in Screen Sharing.
2022-04-25 07:07 AM
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.
2022-06-13 02:17 PM
This is a useless "fix". We're still stuck with the same issues.
2022-06-14 06:15 AM
We are working on a more permanent solution in the 5.11.0 version that should be released on June 20th. Please standby for that release.
2022-04-26 01:52 AM
I just realized that I was launched into Wayland after the upgrade to 22.04... If I log in into GNOME XORG, zoom screen sharing is possible.. I did not use wayland before. I had also a few other problems with multiple monitors, which are gone in xorg.
2022-04-25 07:35 AM
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.
2022-04-25 10:07 AM
Thanks for the workaround... That might help me until zoom receives a bugfix.
2022-04-25 07:42 AM
same as me, there's no option for any windows. hope it would be fixed as soon as possible.
2022-04-26 02:18 AM
Having the same issue on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS with the latest Zoom desktop client version 5.10.4 (2845)
2022-04-26 01:35 PM
Reporting same issue with Zoom, Webex and Skype - affecting all share screen functions - not just a Zoom problen - Wayland ? Trying Gnome
2022-04-28 12:32 PM
try to do this
Search to the custom.conf in /etc/gdm3/
sudo nano /etc/gdm3/custom.conf
uncomment the line
#WaylandEnable=false to be WaylandEnable=false
2022-04-30 09:09 AM
Thank you for the solution! it works for me. everyone should try this
2022-05-02 08:04 PM
Thank you very much. You just saved me from rolling back to 20.0.4.
2022-05-05 02:25 AM
Thank you for the fix, it worked for me,
Everyone try this.
2022-05-13 02:19 AM
It helped me, but now my video is gone. Webcam showing black screen
2022-05-28 04:46 PM
Thank you so much! It was the solution.
2022-06-01 05:15 AM
Thank you bro! It work for me! You're cool!
2022-06-01 06:20 AM
It works for me! But now switching between desktops doesn't work
2022-10-19 07:53 PM - edited 2022-10-19 07:54 PM
It can be solved this way, I followed the instructions on this webpage when gesture of three fingers swipe for switching between desktops doesn't work on linux ubuntu https://itsfoss.com/three-finger-swipe-gnome/
2022-08-26 09:44 AM
This solved the problem in Zoom for me, but unfortunately it created another problem: my whole screen turned yellow (similar to this: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1404516/screen-turns-yellow-even-using-the-live-opt...).
I managed to fix it by changing the colour options in Ubuntu 22.04 by going to Settings > Device Colour Profiles, then removing the colour profile for my monitor, and replacing it with "Colourspace: sRGB". Now my screen is functioning normally, and Zoom is also functioning normally.
2022-09-06 08:07 AM
Works for me. Thank you very much.
2023-01-22 12:37 PM
Your easy-to-use method saved my time, I spent more than a week trying to fix this issue but without success. Thank you so much!
2022-04-29 09:26 AM
I have the exact same issue on 22.04 LTS - only whiteboard sharing available, nothing for screen sharing. Zoom also frequently crashes while attempting to use the "share" feature.
2022-05-02 02:00 AM
2022-05-02 09:17 AM
thank you for providing clear GUI instructions for how to switch!
2022-05-03 01:48 AM
Thanks a lot, it's work!
2022-05-04 06:20 AM
The Xorg solution works, but the Zoom developers should still try to get it to work on Wayland as well, as it is the new default and Xorg will be deprecated sooner or later.
2022-05-05 03:54 AM - edited 2022-05-05 03:55 AM
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...!
2022-05-10 03:37 AM
Is there a solution that does not involve reverting to X.org?
2022-05-10 05:26 AM
Apparently a fix for the underlying issue should be in 5.11.

It works. However GUI is different. Say you have two images opened as shown below, it does not tell you which one is which.
However when it comes to apps and browser tabs or windows for example, it does tell you which one is which.
Honestly I like the latter GUI better.
2022-06-21 08:36 PM
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.
2022-06-21 08:45 PM - edited 2022-06-21 08:49 PM
The option to also share sound is there. I did not experience any crash of the app and was able to stop and resume sharing with no problems.
2022-07-05 07:34 AM
I have 5.11.1 (3595) installed with Ubuntu 22.04 completely up to date and zoom still crashes when screen sharing and using Wayland 😞 . Let me know if there are any logs or something I can share to help fix this issue.
2022-07-20 05:23 AM - edited 2022-07-20 05:51 AM
I have 22.214.171.12495 too. On Ubuntu 22.04 (Wayland). I.e. it's GNOME 42.
Zoom didn't crash on screen share but didn't share the screen either.
I have this:
So I can conclude that the bug is still here.
Release notes of June 20, 2022 version 5.11.0 (3540) states: "Resolved an issue regarding sharing content on Gnome 41 with Wayland".
I think now it's time to work on GNOME 42 fix.
2022-07-20 09:19 AM
Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I am working on this now.
2022-08-11 01:08 AM
5.11.3 (3882) works for me on Ubuntu 22.04 using Wayland.
