[jitsi-users] Etherpad Lite integration with Jitsi Meet


#1

Hi all,

Greetings to all from London. I work for a small ISP in the UK. We
have installed Jitsi Meet on a server for a client, and are trying
to integrate Etherpad Lite into the install but haven't yet been
able to get it to completely work.

It's a Debian jessie server, and I have followed these instructions
in order to install Jitsi Meet:

https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/master/doc/quick-install.md

I then followed the jessie instuctions on this page in order to
install Etherpad Lite:

https://github.com/ether/etherpad-lite/wiki/How-to-deploy-Etherpad-Lite-as-a-service

I then followed the instructions on this page for integrating
Etherpad Lite with the Jitsi Meet installation:

https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/wiki/Etherpad-addition-example

The nginx configuration means that I can now access Etherpad Lite by
going to http://myjitsimeetinstall.org/etherpad (I've just made up
that domain name as I don't currently want to publicise the hostname
of this box). However, I found step 3 on that page a bit confusing.
There is no file at '/usr/share/jitsi-meet/config.js', which I
believe is because I installed Jitsi Meet from Debian packages. The
Debian install process did create a
'/etc/jitsi/meet/myjitsimeetinstall.org-config.js' file, so I added
"etherpad_base: 'https://myjitsimeetinstall.org/etherpad/p/',"
to that file.

However, when I am in a conference room, I still don't get an
Etherpad button at the top of the screen. Has anyone else got this
working? If anyone can spot what I have done wrong, or can tell me
what they did to get this working, I'd really appreciate it.

Many thanks,

Hi,

Everything seems fine as you have describe it. But at first, can you
try a hard refresh (maybe you have already tried it, but just in
case). We sometimes just change the version of the config.js in the
index.html in order to force that.
Did that help?

Hi Damian,

I just tried advancing the number at the end of the 'config.js' line
in index.html and restarted nginx, but it doesn't seem to have made
any difference.

In the '/etc/jitsi/meet/myjitsimeetinstall.org-config.js' config
file, I added the 'etherpad_base' line to the end of the section of
the file that is surrounded by 'var config = { };'. That's what made
sense to me. Is that correct? Or is there something more specific
about how it needs to be integrated into the config file?

Cheers,
-Ian

Hi,

yes there is the correct place to put it. Do you see it by opening
https://myjitsimeetinstall.org/config.js?
You can check meet.jit.si config for reference.

Hi,

I think I have it sorted out. I'm not entirely sure what was wrong
with my configuration, though it was not helped by the fact that I
was sometimes testing, out of habit, in Firefox.

I know that Firefox is only partially supported by Jitsi Meet at
this point. In my case, I don't get the 'Shared document' button if
I am in a conference room in Firefox, but if I open it in Chrome, I
do see the button and it works correctly.

So, thanks for your help, I think I've got it sorted now.

Best wishes,
-Ian
