I've got elementary OS 0.4.1 Loki. I've been trying to join a webinar through https://zoom.us/ and it didn't work. I tried to install it in my computer but I don't know how to do it. I downloaded a .deb file for Ubuntu, if I doubleclick on it the console opens but nothing happens. Has anyone used zoom in elementary OS? Did it work?

Thank you

    Yes, Zoom works well on elementary os, I have used it a lot. Try Paul's answer to install it. – Bo rislav Oct 5 '19 at 5:25

I tried to install it in my computer but I don't know how to do it.

1) Open a terminal and change to your Downloads directory

cd Downloads/

2) Install the Zoom .deb package

sudo dpkg -i zoom_amd64.deb

3) If you get errors like this:

dpkg: error processing package zoom (--install):
 dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:

Then type the following:

sudo apt-get install -f

Then you should see the Zoom application under Applications --> Internet.

I've never used Zoom before, but the package installed just fine.

ElementaryOs is based on Ubuntu, so always choose the Ubuntu method of installation. If you want to install with the terminal, see the comment from Paul.

If you want a UI, and an easier interface, download Eddy in the Appcenter (https://appcenter.elementary.io/com.github.donadigo.eddy/)

Once Eddy is installed, clicking on any '.deb' file like the file for the Zoom software, will open this software. From Eddy, you can easily install Zoom.

Hope that helps :)
