That's because you screwed up the url tags (you left out a few of the ending ones.) The forum is very sensitive to that. I fixed your first post.

Hello. I was not so lucky to just download, install and use Zoom...

Installed the Ubuntu deb package from zoom download site, in tahrpup 32 bit and in bionicpup 64 bit, in both versions I get an error related to
Quote:
pactl: command not found

and
Quote:
Can't load/root/.config/zoomus.conf


Also, I have the /opt folder in another partition, linked to /opt. The installer deleted the link and created a new /opt folder, so I had to link again to the rest of the applications in that folder.

Is there a simple way to run Zoom in tahrpup 32 bit or bionicpup 64 ?

What did you do to have it running? I could download and install any frugal puppy, any version able to run Zoom, just for this purpose in this days.

Thanks very much.

It is possible to run zoom completely from your Web browser without an an install. I have done so on a few occasions.

Go to https://zoom.us/test and follow the prompts as you attempt to open up a test zoom meeting. It will ask you to enable:

[b]Open xdg-open[/b] and it will fail, then in that screen at the bottom is says:

If nothing happens prompts from browser click [b]here. [/b]It will ask you to [b]Open xdg-open again[/b] which will fail and at the bottom of that screen there is:

If you cannot download or run the application, [b]join from your browser[/b]

64-bit: See this thread, http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=114238, in particular Mike Walsh's posts, http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1053914#1053914 and http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1054079#1054079

32-bit: Apparently not. According to darry19662018 you may want to try one of the "DebianDogs", http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1055725#1055725 which you'll find in this Section: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/index.php?f=34

hi fernan,

in bionicpup64 open quickpet and click on bionicpup updates. zoom should then be available in quickpet

@ fernan:-

Actually, you're better off downloading the generic tarball, unpacking it, and manually placing everything in the correct locations. Don't ask me why, but that works; something in the way the .deb package works is specifically set for the multi-user model employed by Debian & Ubuntu.....and Puppy doesn't like it!

That, and the abortion known as PulseAudio, of course.....which I suspect, if the community had known then what they know now, would have been stomped on, hard, before it even got off the ground.

Lennart Poettering should be strung up by the balls for all the aggravation he's caused Linux users over the years. Twisted Evil

Hello. I did notice "Zoom" was added to quickpet in Bionicpup 64, so I uninstalled the previous app and installed from quickpet. With some signs telling me that "high cpu usage is affecting the conference", but I was able to do 1 test for some minutes.

I'll try a fresh frugal install only to use Zoom and check the cpu usage.
