Unable to share windows or screen on Fedora 36 zoom versions 5.9.6-5.10.7

As many have reported it's not possible to share applications or screen with zoom version 5.9.6 and later until 5.10.7.

I and probably many others would like to use Wayland as it is default in Gnome.

The last working version that I found to be working is 5.9.3.1911 version (https://zoom.us/client/5.9.3.1911/zoom_x86_64.rpm). 

Does anyone have 5.9.4 or 5.9.5 Fedora version or least knows last 4 numbers of the version so we could download and test?

 

or the workaround to use X11

https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/quick-docs/configuring-xorg-as-default-gnome-session/

 

Another option to disable security and be able to share screen within Wayland is to:

ALT+F2

lg

#and enter in the console

global.context.unsafe_mode=true

This will give an option to share screen, but many times it will be shared just the background

 

Presumably it will be working from the versions of 5.11 on

 

Any additional feedback?

Yes!  Use the browser-based no-download client.  Sharing has been working fine on that platform with Firefox for a while.  I mean, it lacks some features, but not many; I wish I had switched a long time ago.
