Description Matthew Schultz 2018-03-26 17:10:57 UTC
Could an ebuild be added for the Zoom Meeting client which allows you to share your desktop and use phone or computer audio for sound and a webcam to view the individuals you're meeting with?

The tarball can be downloaded here:
Comment 1 Jonas Stein gentoo-dev 2018-04-08 19:30:44 UTC
Technically yes, but I think it would fit better in one of the overlays first until there are some users who need it.
I could not find the license. May we mirror the files?
You can link to an overlay or attach your ebuilds here.
Comment 2 cruzki 2019-02-20 12:05:26 UTC
I really would love to have this on tree. Zugaina database [1] said there are a couple of overlays in layman already providing an ebuild for this software

Proposed ebuild attached.

Main issue is this message printed by emerge (but I suppose we can't do anything with this):

scanelf: rpath_security_checks(): Security problem NULL DT_RPATH in /var/tmp/portage/net-im/zoom-bin-2.7.162522.0121/image/opt/zoom/platforminputcontexts/

This is the same as the previous ebuild, with the following changes:

1. Update to the latest version.
2. Add a couple of dependencies.
3. Version the downloaded tarball.
Comment 5 Alex Efros 2019-11-11 14:44:22 UTC
Today 2.8.183302.0415 stop working (hang on "Connecting to Google" on start). Renaming 2.8.183302.0415 ebuild to 3.0.309708.1027 and updating package fixed the issue.
Comment 6 Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2020-03-20 16:11:49 UTC
@mva: Would you be interested in adding to the main tree and maintaining it?

Otherwise, dilfridge and myself would take it (in which case please post your Signed-off-by in a comment here).
Comment 7 Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2020-03-24 10:02:51 UTC
As discussed in #gentoo-dev, the package name shouldn't have a -bin suffix (which is reserved for binary packages that are pre-built from a source package).

It seems it is not necessary (since, I'm a co-maintainer, as stated in metadata), but for completeness, my s-ob line is:
