I typically don't use virtual backgrounds, as they reduce video quality.

William B Peckham (WilliamBPeckham) here. Ancient Sysadmin and IT warrior, I have never used zoom.
Located in the northern panhandle of West Virginia USA (not far from Pittsburgh PA),
loving playing with technology and wishing I was fishing while drinking FAR too much coffee!
Recently I have been asked to prepare to attend zoom calls, just in case. I find a couple of problems with that. My main desktop driver is a Pinebook Pro (Architecture AARCH64) running Manjaro Linux, and I have not found a zoom client for that platform. I use browsers FireFox, Chrome, and Vivaldi.
I love it that there is such a well developed community here. I hope you can provide suggestions or links that might make life easier for a new guy on uncommon hardware.
Welcome, Jessica! 😊💙
Here are two resources that you might find useful to ensure your camera and audio are functioning properly:

What's the most unique Zoom event you've attended in the last year?
Nothing special, just traning, classes, and business as usual. 🏫 🏢
I work a the Center for Teaching and Learning at Université Laval, Quebec City, Canada. Since I work for a French-speaking institution, I advocate for internalisation for Zoom, especially for accessibility purposes. Our Zoom documentation in French is located at https://ene.ulaval.ca/classe-virtuelle-zoom .
J'ai démarré une discussion pour les Zoomies Francophones :

What’s your go-to virtual background? While I own a green screen, I don't tend to use virtual backgrounds very often. With some exceptions, I prefer to share my actual background, including the beautiful painting in my office that was painted by an artist friend.
What's the most unique Zoom event you've attended in the last year? Zoom was used for a fun and creative winter solstice event that I normally attend in person. Most notably, some artists managed to incorporate participant videos in a freeform dance experience. Clever!
p.s. My fascination with video conferencing goes way back. My first video call was in 1997 between Dublin, Ireland and Ottawa, Canada. In those days, the bandwidth charges alone cost about $35 a minute (if memory serves) for a 1:1 call and the quality wasn't even close to what Zoom provides today. How far we've come!
Hi! I'm Bev from Massachusetts (I work in RI). I am the Corporate Training Manager for RI REALTORS® (the state Association of REALTORS®). I've been using Zoom for a little over two years and I'm usually using a background that includes my association's logo and mission statement. When I'm not, I like using a picture of my favorite lake in Maine during the winter. I really enjoy snowmobiling and other winter sports, going to the beach and public speaking. Happy to be here. I haven't been to very many unique Zoom meetings but some pretty creative Zoom events and some average couples cocktail nights.

What’s your go-to virtual background? A pix of my wife and myself when we were first going together. We are now married 55 years.
What's the most unique Zoom event you've attended in the last year? Last years anniversary we hosted a renewal of our vows with two Rabbis and a singer from Israel. We had 96 windows open. It was a memory.
Need Help- I am a Court Appointed Guardian Ad Litem for a family of four children aged 4, 5, 8 and 9 who were taken from their home and parents rights terminated. We could not get four adopted with same family so two older are in Indiana with a family friend and two younger back here in Florida. I will be doing zooms with the four kids and two adopting moms to keep the siblings in contact. Looking for ideas/games to do with kids so it is more of a fun time together. ANY IDEAS???
note- GAL stands for Guardian Ad Litem (for those in other states it may be called CASA)
I second Zoom apps. Kahoot is a fun game to play and there is Head Up and others as well. We've also done scavenger hunts through Zoom. We did a virtual banquet for our youth football and cheer program and the kids had fun running around their houses, finding items and bringing them back to show on camera. We gave them a time limit for each item so they had to hurry. If the kids like to draw, you can use the whiteboard feature so they can draw and create something together. The whiteboard can be saved afterwards so every can keep it. I hope things work out well for the kids. It's sad they have to be separated. Good luck!
