How to Install Zoom (Video Conferencing) on Ubuntu 19.04

Posted on

Here’s how to install Zoom, a popular video chat software, on Ubuntu 19.04 “Disco”.

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

wget -O /tmp/zoom.deb
sudo apt update && sudo apt install libgl1-mesa-glx 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 the two missing dependency packages needed on Ubuntu 19.04.
  3. Install the .deb.

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