#StackBounty: #manjaro #zoom-meeting Can't screen share in Zoom session on Manjaro

Bounty: 50

I’m using Zoom (Version 5.5.2), and when I start screen sharing from a Zoom session, I get the following popup:

enter image description here

Can not start share, we only support Wayland on GNOME with Ubuntu 17 and above, Fedora 25 and above, Debian 9 and above, CentOS 8 and above, OpenSUSE Leap 15 and above, Oracle Linux 8 and above, Arch Linux, AnterGos, Manjaro. If your OS is not on the list, please use x11 instead.

But I’m running Manjaro, which is in the list of mentioned OS’es. I found this blogpost where a similar problem was addressed on Debian Unstable, by adding the missing version information to "usr/lib/os-release".

My "/usr/lib/os-release" file doesn’t contain any Version information either:

NAME="Manjaro Linux"
ID=manjaro
ID_LIKE=arch
BUILD_ID=rolling
PRETTY_NAME="Manjaro Linux"
ANSI_COLOR="32;1;24;144;200"
HOME_URL="https://manjaro.org/"
DOCUMENTATION_URL="https://wiki.manjaro.org/"
SUPPORT_URL="https://manjaro.org/"
BUG_REPORT_URL="https://bugs.manjaro.org/"
LOGO=manjarolinux

As far as I can tell, this information is in "/etc/lsb-release" which contains:

DISTRIB_ID=ManjaroLinux
DISTRIB_RELEASE=20.2.1
DISTRIB_CODENAME=Nibia
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Manjaro Linux

Should I just add these contents to "/usr/lib/os-release" as that blog suggests? Will this fix my problem, or should I do something else?

Will this break anything? The general advice seems to be that I shouldn’t manually be editing "usr/lib/os-release" anyway.
