How to Configure Zoom Virtual Backgrounds on IGEL OS
Recently, in the IGEL Community, Lars Glöckner, Senior Solutions Architect EMEA at IGEL, posted a tech-tip on configuring Zoom virtual backgrounds on IGEL OS.
Make Zoom Virtual Background on Linux available with Citrix, VMware Horizon, and AVD (WVD) when you don't have the supported hardware in place.
There is a new article on Zoom online: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/4414459007757 - thanks to @Sven for bringing this to my attention.
I have built a workaround to make this feature possible on IGEL OS, but you need to configure that for your solution like this:
The main file, which is every time available, is this one:
The other ones are only there when the Zoom Plugin is enabled in the section of the solution for Citrix, VMware Horizon, and AVD (WVD).
Zoom with Custom Partition:
sed -i "s/SMARTVB=.*/SMARTVB=1/g" /etc/zoomvdi/ZoomMedia.ini
Zoom on Citrix:
sed -i "s/SMARTVB=.*/SMARTVB=1/g" /etc/zoomvdi/citrix/ZoomMedia.ini
Zoom on Horizon:
sed -i "s/SMARTVB=.*/SMARTVB=1/g" /etc/zoomvdi/vmware/ZoomMediaVmware.ini
Zoom on AVD or WVD:
sed -i "s/SMARTVB=.*/SMARTVB=1/g" /etc/zoomvdi/wvd/
