I am using OpenMandriva Lx version: 23.06 (ROME) Rolling for x86_64 and I need Zoom for my work.
The RPM package of Zoom doesn’t work with OM ROME but the flatpak version seems to work so far.
Below are how I install Zoom using flatpak
$ sudo dnf install flatpak
$ flatpak install flathub us.zoom.Zoom
To run zoom using flatpak
$ flatpak run us.zoom.Zoom
Zoom crashed on the first run, but after I run it the second time, everything seems to work so far.
Welcome to OpenMandriva and our forum. This forum is for users of OpenMandriva Linux operating systems.
We are a small group. All the contributors and developers here are unpaid volunteers.
You are welcome to talk to our developers at OpenMandriva Chat.
The first thing when a new user has an issue is to look in the documentation for OMLx. OpenMandriva wiki and Forum Resources guide.
If you don’t find what you are looking for try an Internet search (googling). One can find out a lot from documentation or forum posts at other Linux distros. If user finds something written for another distro but you have some doubt ask at OpenMandriva Chat.
For serious technical issues and package/feature requests please file a bug report here.
Several of us in OM contributor group worked on this, communicating in OpenMandriva Chat. Conclusion: Use the Zoom package in Flatpak. FWIW this was our second go at trying to find a workaround for the Zoom Linux .rpm’s or the tar ball.
