How to Install Zoom (Video Conferencing) on Ubuntu 18.04

Posted on

Here’s how to install Zoom, a popular video chat software, on Ubuntu 18.04.

Update: I created a script to make this even easier. Please see my new blog post.


wget -O /tmp/zoom.deb https://zoom.us/client/latest/zoom_amd64.deb
sudo apt update && sudo apt install libxcb-xtest0
sudo dpkg -i /tmp/zoom.deb

There’s three steps:

  1. Download the .deb, a package file for Ubuntu and Debian.
  2. Install a missing dependency package needed on Ubuntu 18.04.
  3. Install the .deb.

You can also install the 32bit version by swapping “amd64” in the URL with “i386”.
