    It wants you to install libxcb-xtest0, so run sudo apt-get install libxcb-xtest0, then run the dpkg -i thing again. – mikewhatever Dec 29 '17 at 16:07

    Glad it helped. I've added an answer, and you are welcome to accept it. – mikewhatever Dec 30 '17 at 10:05
  • Thank you - that solved the problem. I assumed zoom_amd64.deb contained everything required. I obviously have to learn to read the log better. Last time I installed Zoom I did not have to install libxcb-xtest0 separately. – Energeiai Dec 30 '17 at 10:17

  • this is STILL an issue with zoom install 3 years later ... below solutions work yet Zoom should step up and FIX their install .deb process ... thankfully we have askubuntu – Scott Stensland 2 days ago

The software in question (Zoom) requires libxcb-xtest0. The package is in the repositories, and can be installed with

sudo apt-get install libxcb-xtest0

Note, this should be done prior to the installation of zoom.

    @Bus42 The package libxcb-xtest0 is still in the repositories. packages.ubuntu.com/…. I suspect you make have an unsupported release. – mikewhatever Oct 23 '20 at 21:46

Zoom requires libxcb-xtest0 You can do this in the terminal, navigate to where you have downloaded the '.deb' file.

cd ~/Download/

then type in:

sudo dpkg -i zoom_amd64.deb 

after it runs .... type in this:

sudo apt install -f

everything will be installed. Please do have internet.

Português:

Prezados,

tive o mesmo problema recentemente ao instalar o zoom meeting, estava com problema relacionado a algumas dependências. Ocorre que anteriormente eu tinha mudado a minha mirrors para uma com velocidade maior, e ao alterar para a mirrors "original" o problema foi solucionado.

Passos para resolver o meu problema:

  1. Editei o arquivo /etc/apt/source.list para a mirrors padrão
  2. rodei um sudo apt update
  3. e por fim sudo apt install -f

English(Translated by google translator):

Dear,

I had the same problem recently when installing the zoom meeting, I had a problem related to some dependencies. It turns out that previously I had changed my mirrors to one with a higher speed, and by changing to the "original" mirrors the problem was solved.

Steps to solve my problem:

  1. I edited the /etc/apt/source.list file for the standard mirrors
  2. I ran a sudo apt update
  3. and finally sudo apt install -f

I had the similar problem while installing zoom, using following steps

wget https://zoom.us/client/latest/zoom_amd64.deb
sudo apt install ./zoom_amd64.deb

I showed errors but it was resolved when I used

sudo apt --fix-broken install

It installed all the dependencies and fixed the broken installation of zoom

After that you can just type zoom on terminal to verify, it will open up zoom login page.

I'm pretty sure it's just a broken package now and there is no longer any way to install it on Ubuntu. There are dependencies that don't exist anymore. The package needs to be maintained.
