Even with the latest upgrades to Fedora 39, I am still having issues with Zoom on wayland.  I cannot operate day to day without zoom working.

Unless and until that is resolved, eliminating wayland is a serious blocker.

This has been sort-of resolved in Zoom for well over two years.

The trick is to copy the Zoom desktop file from
/usr/share/applications to ~/.local/share/applications and edit the
new copy to change the Exec line to the following:


Once Plasma picks up the updated desktop file, it will let you
screenshare on Wayland just fine when you launch it.

You can also test this by simply doing this from the command line:


(I pushed Zoom to fix it to work with portals years ago, but I
couldn't get them to get rid of the artificial blocker...)

That seems to fix the issue.  Thanks for that.  Though I use KDE and so set it =KDE.

The point is that Zoom needs to be lied to about which desktop you are
using in order to access the desktop-agnostic API.

I wonder how many others simply go back to xorg when their zoom doesn't work.  I did for quite a while, until it started to look like that wouldn't be a choice pretty soon.

There will be a lot of complaints when only wayland is available.  Maybe that'll get zoom in gear to fix it.
