    Default Zoom : unable to share screen

    Hi,

    I've installed Zoom on my Gnome desktop.

    Code:
    zypper se -s zoom
    Code:
    Loading repository data... 
    Reading installed packages... 
     
    S | Name               | Type    | Version      | Arch   | Repository 
    --+--------------------+---------+--------------+--------+---------------- 
      | vim-plugin-zoomwin | package | 24-lp152.4.2 | noarch | Main Repository
    I installed zoom from Flatpack as per the instructions here: https://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php/540068-Zoom-app-Video-Conferencing

    Zoom keeps getting regularly updated automatically.

    However if i try to share my screen i get the message that Zoom only supports Wayland on Gnome for OpenSUSE 15 and above.

    Code:
    zypper se -s wayland

    Default Re: Zoom : unable to share screen

    What I read is that Zoom does not work for sharing docs in Wayland. It's a Zoom feature, not an openSUSE problem. For Zoom to work I have to logon as Xorg. Then it shares docs great.

    I didn't. I just changed my choice to Xorg at when entering my initial login pw.

    Default Re: Zoom : unable to share screen

    Hi,

    I installed x11 but could not use it as zoom never launched if i log in using X11. So i uninstalled zoon from flatpak and installed zoom from the rpm from the Zoom website.

    But now i have another problem. If i share screen using Zoom, the part of the screen that is shared does not show any mouse control etc - it is like a dead space. I don't know what to do.
