Install Zoom on Linux Mint 21

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Zoom on Linux Mint 21. For those of you who didn’t know, Zoom is a communications technology platform that provides video telephony and real-time online chat services through a cloud-based peer-to-peer software platform. Zoom is not only used as a platform for audio or video conferencing but is also used for chats, and conducting several webinars. It is available on Windows, Linux, macOS, Android, and iOS systems.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of a Zoom video conference on Linux Mint 21 (Vanessa).


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Linux Mint 21 (Vanessa).
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.
