IrcsomeBot1<DarinMiller> Valorie, I agree with earlier frustration as these issues are difficult to pinpoint the problem packages.01:09
valorieby chance I just got the onboard sound to work again, maybe because I had to shut down earlier when we lost power01:10
valoriethere was a PA update yesterday I think01:10
IrcsomeBot1<DarinMiller> PA?01:10
valoriebut I wish it would just go back to what it was at the beta -- plug in headset, Just Works01:10
IrcsomeBot1<DarinMiller> pulseaudio?01:11
valorieunplug headset, onboard sound Just Works01:11
valorieI guess I could start a Google Meet and see if the cam still works01:11
IrcsomeBot1<DarinMiller> Yes, that's the same problem I am fighting. Sometime I have to re-plug my headset dongle 3 times before it works correctly.  Testing neon dev unstable works fine with plasma 5.20, so if it's a KDE issue then fixed are in the pipe.  I don't think its a kernel issues as I Ubuntu 20.10 works fine with the same hw.01:13
IrcsomeBot1<DarinMiller> sure, I can help test your  cam if you want.01:15
valorieit worked yesterday01:16
valorieyep, works today01:18
IrcsomeBot1<DarinMiller> on 20.04 my web cam mic would occasionally turn my voice into Donald Duck.  I had to re-connect the usb plug to fix it or use a different browser.01:18
valorieyou don't even have to join a meeting, just say 'yes, I give permission to use my cam'01:18
valorieand it starts up01:18
IrcsomeBot1<DarinMiller> Ok, very good, then ignore my meeting link in the PM.01:19
valorieI host meetings all the time for my genealogy society01:22
valorieI do like BBB better01:23
valorieit seems friendlier01:23
valoriebut gMeet works01:23
valorieand you don't have to install a crappy app01:23
IrcsomeBot1<DarinMiller> More flexible with whiteboard type stuff.  I just tried gMeets for the 1st time and it seemed straight forward.01:23
IrcsomeBot1<DarinMiller> For work, I use both Teams and Zoom.  Those apps consume 100's of MB of RAM.  But they work really well on Linux.01:25
valoriewhen the lockdowns were imposed, my society already had the non-profit free GSuite, and a friend and I tested it out and advocated for us to use it01:25
valorienow we have more than one meeting per week, and people from around the US attending01:25
valorieit's pretty cool01:25
valorieI hate zoom01:25
IrcsomeBot1<DarinMiller> Funny, I like using both of those on Linux better than on my Windows work laptop.01:26
valorieexcept the name, which is great01:26
valorieI hate the app01:26
valorieit isn't great in the browser, but not horrible01:26
IrcsomeBot1<DarinMiller> Zoom is updated on a weekly/bi-weekly basis and sometime they break things.  So I always keep a known good working copy.01:26
valoriesome groups don't allow me to join via the browser tho01:27
IrcsomeBot1<DarinMiller> Teams is updated via  PPA, where Zoom requires manual updating.01:27
valorieI've not used teams01:27
IrcsomeBot1<DarinMiller> Due to the excessive number of teams and active conversation I have with people from work, all the Teams processes consume ~800MB  of RAM!01:29
IrcsomeBot1<DarinMiller> In a half hour, I have my last Zoom meeting for today ...Working for a global company mandates long days at times...01:36
IrcsomeBot1<DarinMiller> Several reconnections of my plantronics headset never succeeded in correctly configuring both mic and  headset, so I am back to strongly considering reverting back to 20.04.... :(02:23
valorieit worked in the beta02:51
valorieusually by messing with the "advanced" settings in pavucontrol I can get things to work02:52
valorieor sometimes by restarting Chrome02:52
