[jitsi-users] Documentation Update


#1

Hi,

I'd like to see enumerated steps in the documentation for the Ubuntu
installation page: https://jitsi.org/Main/DebianRepository

I'd also like to see a single set of instructions for the installers. That
is, rather than Ubuntu packages OR Ubuntu Repository, direct users to just
one or the other. Note that the Ubuntu Repository page simply directs the
user to downloading to the Ubuntu package anyway, without providing a link.

Remove all links to "packages" and replace them with instruction pages. The
instruction pages should always have a BIG button that links a "Download"
button to the latest version. The instruction pages can also link to an
"archive" that shows the directory listing. Users should not see directory
listings by default -- it is confusing and hard to read. (Check out how
Firefox detects the operating system and architecture.)

With that in mind, here are the instructions I would like to see on the
Ubuntu page:

   1. Download the latest
64-bit<https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/debian/jitsi_2.4-latest_amd64.deb>or
   32-bit<https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/debian/jitsi_2.4-latest_i386.deb>version.
   2. Install the package using: sudo dpkg -i jitsi_.*latest.*.deb
   3. Run Jitsi using: jitsi

There should also be a little blurb about the SIP communicator keyring, if
it is necessary.

Kindest regards.

Thangalin,

I am not sure if you are aware that the jitsi project is run by volunteers.

Your vocabulary for what you wish to see is rather on the wrong / strong
side. Could I suggest that you help writing or volunteer to write the
document

My apologies to you if I also appear to come on too strong

Kofi
