You might want to take a look at using an Ubuntu chroot.  i use this for 
apps that need more recent dependencies than the default centos7 linux 

it works pretty great actually, i've been able to run linux-chrome as 
well as the linux zoom client under this.  you can also follow this 
general guide to run a debian chroot if you don't want to get stuck with 
ubuntu's odd choices about packaging and stuff.
