This is happening on my Slackware64 15.0 KDE Desktop as well.

I know it worked last week when I needed it.

I am missing the same two libraries:

# ldd /opt/zoom-linux/zoom |grep found
        libcef.so => not found
        libffmpeg.so => not found

However, they exist under the /opt/zoom-linux tree:

# ls -lad $(find /opt/zoom-linux -type f -name "*.so*" |grep -e ffmpeg -e

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 197039432 Sep  6 03:37 /opt/zoom-linux/cef/libcef.so*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root   3198712 Jan 16 03:10
Maybe /usr/bin/zoom-linux needs to be a shell script with ldconfig goodies ?

I am tied up at work this week so no time to mess with it but I might start
there ?
