I frequently use Zoom for meetings in the current pandemic situation and am able to use its screensharing facilities during meetings. However, as soon as someone (either a participant or I) attempts to annotate something on my screen that is being shared, the window manager crashes and blacks out. Then no one is able to see anything on my screen (including me). I can get a terminal using
Ctrl-Alt-FX combination but have not able to get the window manager restarted. Usually I then have to restart my machine.
This problem does not happen if I am using the normal GNOME window manager (available as a choice when logging in). Has anyone else experienced this problem or can suggest a fix? I would really like to continue using i3wm when starting a Zoom meeting rather than having to log-out and in each time I need to attend a meeting.
