Ever wondered why zoom has an optional dependency on
picom in the Arch User Repository (AUR)? It says
extra compositor needed by some window managers for screen sharing
If only I had actually bothered to read this at some point, because then I wouldn’t have had to wonder why Zoom whiteboards wouldn’t work for me when inside a
bspwm session (tiling window manager without a compositor). If I start
picom together with
bspwm everything works just fine. TIL.
