Just installed Ubuntu 20.04.
The latest version of zoom (software-install) I found is 14.
Can anyone help me how to install zoom? I and my wife need it for online classes.

I've been using Zoom on Ubuntu using the official
.deb file downloaded from their site. However, the latest update (Version 5.1.412382.0614) made things look ugly (huge icons, low-res, etc) and behave strangely.
So, after some fiddling around I found that there is a snap of the
zoom-client that works better than the
.deb file with the added advantage that it auto-updates. You can install it from the Software Center or from the command line using the following command.
sudo snap install zoom-client
Download the .deb package from Zoom Download Centre
sudo apt install gdebi
Run the following commands in terminal:
sudo apt update sudo apt install ./zoom_amd64.deb
From the Zoom download page here: Download Center - Zoom. Select Ubuntu for Linux Type, make sure the OS Architecture matches your system and select 14.04+.
Once it is downloaded CD into the folder where it was downloaded to and run the following.
sudo apt update sudo dpkg -i /path/to/deb sudo apt install -f
Note: This installs it using native tools; however, you might run into issues with dependencies, this should be solved using the
sudo apt install -f but pay attention to the terminal output to make sure no further steps are needed.
