I was attempting to install the jitsi-meet package on an Ubuntu 18.04 system that uses PAM and LDAP for our user accounts. I kept getting error messages that “user jvb already exists in /etc/passwd” from the videobridge package config script- though no such user did exist there. I quickly realized it was coming from LDAP.
In future releases it could be useful to prefix the username with an underscore to minimize username collision possibilities.
Is it possible to modify the installation via command line or other means to override this default username?
