Install Zoom as zoom_x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

I am trying to install Zoom and avoid Snaps and AUR packages.
Zoom will remain as proprietary as it is no matter how I install it so I chose to download their own Arch package (seems more secure).

Is it possible to install pkg.tar.xz directly?

Yes it is. :slight_smile:


sudo pacman -U /path/to/the/package.pkg.tar.xz

There is also in herecura repositories, signed by trusted developers …

The AUR package just downloads and installs the package from the official Zoom website.
