Hi,
I get the following error :

while loading shared libraries: libudev.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Any idea ?
thanks

My release needed symlink to a different library name...


# cd /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
# sudo ln -s libudev.so.1 libudev.so.0

On Ubuntu 17.10, I can't get sound working. Mic is fine, but no outbound sound.

@trondhindenes I got the same issue. I had to open settings and select my output device to fix it.

That didn't help for me. There's simply no sound whatever device I choose.

I had the audio issue as well. You can work around it by installing and using pavucontrol to override the recording device for the application in real time. This has been a life saver for me for a few apps.

sudo apt-get install pavucontrol

How exactly did you use pavucontrol to get the sound working? I have it installed, but have no clue how to proceed. No sound in bluejeans. Awful app, btw.

On Ubuntu 18.10

sudo ln -s libusb-1.0.so.0.1.0 libudev.so.0 to make BlueJeans work

Ubuntu 18.10 also requires
sudo apt-get install libgconf-2-4

Thanks for this. Has anyone been able to get http://bluejeans.com/$meeting_id links to open in the Desktop app? I had this set up in Fedora but don't remember what hack I had to apply to accomplish it.

If you add the --scripts option to alien, then it will also convert the post-install/pre-uninstall scripts, which will automatically set up the libudev symlink and also add a desktop launcher (and remove these automatically if you uninstall the package).

I got no clue guys, I haven't run this script in quite a while now. If you guys updated it in any way please post the whole thing here and I can update the gist 👍 For now I'll just add the --scripts flag @scpike please let me know if there's more.

@fracasula here's what I just did that seems to be working:

sudo apt install alien -y
sudo alien --scripts bluejeans_1.28.9-2_amd64.rpm # or whatever is the file you downloaded from the bluejeans website
sudo dpkg -i bluejeans_1.28.9-2_amd64.deb
/opt/bluejeans/bluejeans

I think we should add libgconf-2-4.
Here my script:

sudo apt install alien -y
sudo alien --scripts bluejeans-1.37.22.x86_64.rpm # or whatever is the file you downloaded from the bluejeans website
sudo dpkg -i bluejeans_1.37.22-2_amd64.deb
sudo apt install libgconf-2-4.
# Run
/opt/bluejeans/bluejeans
