Last week, I was to participate in a "Zoom" meeting for a
I'm involved in. I have the needed software on my rarely-used windows-7
box. But I could not complete the windows-7 login (some problem with a
windows-7 service). I've since found there is a "Zoom" client for
Fedora. "dnfdragora" does not find anything for it. But I found a web
page that I hope has what I need. I've downloaded the package
("zoom_x86_64.rpm"), and I've downloaded a "Public Key"
("package-signing-key.pub"). The web site from which I've downloaded
these also has a line:
Key fingerprint: [some 40 hex digit number]
I have installed this for several people on Fedora.
1. Do the 2 files need to be in a specific place to do the install? If
2. Do I need to be "root" to do the install?
3. What do I do with the "Key fingerprint"?
It sounds like they are now signing the rpm package.
4. How do I do the install (preferably using "dnf")?
The instructions are at (although they still use yum):
"sudo rpm --import package-signing-key.pub"
That registers the signing key with rpm.
"dnf install zoom_x86_64.rpm"
That installs the package along with any dependencies if necessary.
