More info ...

I wen to the zoom getting started site at

Then I downloaded the Version 5.13.5 (431) Debian ( .deb ) and the Fedora (
.rpm ) packages to a temp directory

I could not find the Arch or Manjoro ( .tgz ) files ...

I converted the .deb via deb2tgz to a Slackware .txz and the .rpm Package
to a Slackware Package via rpm2archive.

I made deb/ and rpm/ directories and untarred the 'Slackware Packages' into
the two different temp directories.

In both cases ( deb and rpm ), ./ZoomLauncher worked as expected.

 So ... where did the .tgz package  referenced by the zoom-linux/info at
come from ?

deb2tgz ran much faster on my system than rpm2archive so ...

Maybe Ebben needs to add a dependency ( deb2tgz ) and use the deb
