Zoom.us Installation on openSUSE Tumbleweed

Some of us are #WorkFromHome right now because #COVID19 spreading around the world and it makes online meeting applications getting more popular. Some of the companies who did a #WorkFromHome use that to communicating with the team. And there is a lot of popular meeting online application such as WebEx, Google Meet Hangout, Jitsi, or Zoom.us.

I spend my time when I #WorkFromHome to reinstall and getting back to my old openSUSE computer. I have reinstalled my old Laptop using openSUSE Tumbleweed because I want to try how rolling release for openSUSE works.

It amazes me, actually better than I use openSUSE Leap before. A Whole of Laptop features works perfectly in my old laptop ASUS x450J. Not only that. The application is also good. I got an edge of a development package release for openSUSE.

Now, I use openSUSE Tumbleweed for works and learning something new on my laptop. I use zoom.us when working with the team. zoom.us on my openSUSE is very good. Camera, microphone, speakers, sharing screen are perfectly running.

So, this is how i install zoom.us on my openSUSE, below is the rundown for the steps:

  1. Download and install zoom.us certificate key
  2. Download and install zom.us package
  3. Use Zoom

Download the zoom certificate:

cd ~/Downloads
wget -c https://zoom.us/linux/download/pubkey -O zoom-key.pub
sudo rpm --import zoom-key.pub

Download zoom.us package on this page https://zoom.us/download, select openSUSE 13.2+. Then download it.

Go to your Downloads folder, i save it on ~/Downloads. And install the package.

cd ~/Downloads
sudo zypper in ./zoom_openSUSE_x86_64.rpm

Finally, you can do the online conference/meeting with your teams.

Thank you!
