I have a requirement to run Zoom in a SSO single sign on mode to access launch official meetings. When I sign in, I am prompted for my organization. This launches a window in Firefox that says
“Sign in with SSO…Zoom should launch in a few seconds. If not, please click button”
So it doesn’t launch and I click the button. Nothing happens. Zoom is set to be the handling application in Firefox for zoommtg URLs, so I don’t know what else to change. If I try to log in with the meeting ID, I get sent back to the SSO screen.
Zoom works fine if I can enter a meeting ID and password.
Zoom is perfectly fine as long as you use it correctly (not a public meeting, host accepts attendants etc, in other words just use common sense). Yes they overlapped their data with LinkedIn. Bad boys. But terrible in any way. LinkedIn and Teams are Microsoft owned sure they share some data as well.
I don’t think any other company that jumps 2B in rev in a month would not face scrutiny.
Back on topic: Zoom does launch when I click on a Zoom link in Firefox on MacOS. I can test Ubuntu 19.10 later.
The message on the screen also mentions the “xdg-open” software hook. So, I am running the Budgie minimal, not the totally stripped down version. Install the xdg-open package and DON’T use the Snap version of Chromium. (the release Chrome version seems faster anyway) and Zoom launches via the browser are working.
