100 Days of LotD | Day 16: Zoomin‘ in

You can find the „100 Days of LotD“ mission statement [ here ].

Today I decided to try using my Linux laptop for Zoom meetings. In the Discover store, only an unofficial snap package was to be had so I went ahead and downloaded the  official DEB package from Zoom’s download center. Camera and headset both got recognised instantly. It didn’t come as a surprise that the i5 processor is not fast enough for virtual backgrounds, although I would have loved to see how well that performs on Linux.

The meeting ran smoothly, with rounded corners of everything being the only reminder that it’s not the Windows app I am accustomed to.

Tried editing some graphics with Pinta. It really works 95% like paint.net (and, judging from an error message it threw, it’s even written in .NET) but there are subtle differences I will probably have to overcome in the months to come.

There was one update to the system: libmysqlclient21 worth of 1.2 MB download.
