I wanted to use Jitsi for conference calls and document/screen sharing w. others.
So I’ve got two options:
- Jitsi via browser or
- Jitsi installed on my local machine as I understand.
But there have been two dead ends:
Yes it works on my browser (Opera, FF, even Tor) but screen sharing asks me to “go to webstore” (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/jitsi-meetings/kglhbbefd123eedjiejgLmgmfplifeb). There is no download link for the plugin!
Install Jitsi on my Mint 17 machine (https://jitsi.org/downloads/):
- added the ppa
- did the update
- sudo apt-get install jitsi-meet … returns incomplete dependencies:
jitsi-videobridge2 (= 2.1-157-g389b69ff-1)
jicofo (= 1.0-539-1)
jitsi-meet-web-config (= 1.0.3928-1)
jitsi-meet-prosody (= 1.0.3928-1)
- so sudo apt-get install jitsi-videobridge2 … returns missing dependencies:
openjdk-8-jre-headless cannot be installed or
openjdk-11-jre-headless cannot be installed.
Does anyone have a solution for either option 1 or option 2?
PS: Before anyone comes up and says “oh just upgrade your OS”: I’ve got lots of things on it that I would lose if I upgraded. Not keen on it!
