Zoom Debian Linux package requires ibus even on KDE and XFCE (Kubuntu and Xubuntu)


The Zoom Debian Linux package is requiring ibus. But ibus is part of GNOME desktop.

So installing zoom_amd64.deb under KDE Plasma breaks keyboard support due to ibus and related dependencies which do not work under KDE.


Thus hereby a request to please remove ibus from required dependencies in zoom_amd64.deb.
