to Felton Linux Users Group LUG

Time: This Saturday at 11:00AM Pacific Time

Location: https://meet.jit.si/FeltonLUG#config.disableTileEnlargement=true


Possible topics to discuss:

1) Robby may address whether right-to-repair efforts are becoming moot and also introduce the coding website 'CodeCademy'.

2) What is the purpose of Ctrl+Alt+F8?

3) Fedora is planning to support Raspberry Pi with the next version.

4) Firefox Send was a good tool for sending and sharing large files over the internet. It was discontinued abruptly. Internxt has launched a similar tool called Internxt Send.

5) Development for Linux MO0) int 21 is going in full swing. You should expect the beta to arrive in a week or so. Meanwhile, a list of some features you would see in the upcoming release is available.

6) Michael Larabel writes that Canonical engineers have continued with their "quest to improve the start-up for the Snap version of Mozilla Firefox" with the latest improvements reducing the start-time by around "50%" in Ubuntu. We are told much of this improvement is due to "a Mozilla change to copy only one locale/language pack" instead of all. Other improvements have been accomplished by switching GNOME and GTK theme snaps over to LZO from XZ compression. Work is continuing though and we are told "multi-threaded decompression" is next with other items being explored too.

Bring your latest fun computer experiences, problems and solutions to the meeting.

Hope to see you there...

Need to connect?

If you have problems connecting to "Jitsi Meet" through your browser, try the AppImage (for Linux only). It's a single stand-alone file that contains everything needed and doesn't install or make changes to your computer other than the usual config settings. Simply make the AppImage file executable and run it. Quick and easy, plus it will be automatically replaced with new versions as they become available, so you'll always be using the latest.

"Jitsi Meet" applications are located here:
Linux (.deb), Linux (.AppImage), Windows (.exe) and MAC (.dmg)...
https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet-electron/releases/latest

Links to the Mobile apps for Apple and Android are here...

Helpful hints:
press ? to list quick shortcuts
press M (mute) to toggle the microphone
press V (video) to toggle the camera
press C (chat) to open the chat window
press Space for 'Push-to-Talk' mode so mic only works when the Space is held down; press M to reset to normal mode

Best Practices:
- Remember to enter a user name at the prompt when launching Jitsi Meet
- Please Mute your microphone (M on the keyboard) when you're not speaking, or hit the Spacebar to enter Push-to-Talk mode. Then, hold it down to talk, release to mute.
