Zoom, Signal, etc

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fa2f36b5a38>

Are there easy instructions for installing the Zoom for meetings and Signal-Desktop? Those are both every day necessities for me.

Thanks,

Welcome @LanceHaverkamp to OpenMandriva forum.

Zoom.

Go to website Download Center - Zoom

In Linux type pick “Other Linux OS”, then click and download tar.xz archive with 64-bit version.
After downloading, unpack archive and launch file
ZoomLauncher
by double click.


Signal-desktop

Go to website openSUSE Software and then in SUSE Tumbleweed click on show expetimental packages, then on expert download. In new webpage pick Fedora and download binary packages directly. Then download signal rpm package. You need download .rpm, not src.rpm - just pick this seconds options.

Or just paste this link to browser:
https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/network:/im:/signal/Fedora_33/x86_64/signal-desktop-1.39.6-1.22.x86_64.rpm
Then after downloading. Open terminal (konsole) and run command:
sudo rpm -i --nodeps signal-desktop-1.39.6-1.22.x86_64.rpm
If terminal was open in different dir, then you need to add correct path to downloaded file eg. /home/user/Desktop/signal-desktop-1.39.6-1.22.x86_64.rpm

After this launch app in terminal via this command:
/usr/lib64/signal-desktop/signal-desktop

Thank you, @AngryPenguin. I learned an important thing here that Fedora’s packages are compatible with OpenMandriva. Thanks @LanceHaverkamp, your question is interesting & greetings to you. Glad to find a 20 years GNU+Linux user friend here.
