VOIP for GNOME Desktop: Ekiga

Dennis Guse

Yesterday I got some time to start playing with SIP. I used Ekiga a SIP client for the gnome-desktop. After installation I got an account on ekiga.net and everything went fine. The provided configuration wizard is really cool stuff. The hole action consumed 10 minutes and afterwards I spent 1 hour to get the sound devices working. And it did, but it was really annoying. The only problem now is that my built-in (Thinkpad X60) microphone produces a feedback if I use the internal speakers. The only solution is to use headphones and don't type or click during a call.

At last: sip:500@ekiga.net is a echo service, so you can test your configuration. Next week I will try to get my bluetooth headset running.
