There are lots of people who are using zoom for meetings. Today I will tell you the best ways to install zoom in your ubuntu.

I use snap to install zoom in my ubuntu. Most of the time, my zoom application crashes. It is so frustrating for me.

So I used the official Debian package app and installed zoom in ubuntu. There are two ways to install zoom in your ubuntu.

  1. With the help of UI
  2. Command-line

With the help of UI

There is two-step involved in installing zoom in your ubuntu.

  1. Download zoom application
  2. Install application

Download zoom application

You go to the zoom official page and download the zoom application file in the first step.

Install application

In the second step, you go to the download folder and run the application installer by pressing the mouse right-click, clicking again open with other application buttons, and click the Install software button.

Steps > Open file with the mouse right-click on file > open with other application > Install software.

After some seconds next screen is a popup, and click the install button. Your application installation process is starting.

Command-line

There is two-step to install the zoom on the command line.

  1. Download zoom application
  2. Install application

Download zoom application

In the first step, we download the zoom application file with wget command.

wget https://zoom.us/client/latest/zoom_amd64.deb -O zoom.deb

Install application

Your file is installed in a local download folder and goes to the folder. Then run the following command.

sudo dpkg -i  zoom.deb

After the command successfully runs in your terminal, your zoom application is installed.

The most cases wget command download file is in the download folder. If you specify a different folder. Then it downloads a different folder. then you go to the download folder and run dpkg the command with the file name.


How to Uninstall zoom in ubuntu?

You run the following command to remove the zoom application.

sudo apt remove --purge zoom

Conclusion

I’m not recommended to snap to install zoom. Because of a lot of time, your zoom application crashes, and your user experience is not good.

Suppose you install a Debian-based application in your ubuntu. I strongly recommend installing the app directly and not using any third-party package manager like snap or flatpack.
