Ekiga - SIP and H.323 Voice over IP and Videoconferencing for UN*X

ekiga [-d level] [-c URL]

Ekiga is a SIP and H.323 VoIP, IP Telephony and Video Conferencing application which complies to the SIP and H.323 protocols. It can connect to a variety of other SIP and H323 applications including specific hardware. Ekiga can work with or without a webcam, and is able to create pure audio communications or traditional audio+video communications. Ekiga was formerly known as GnomeMeeting. Ekiga has been designed for the GNOME desktop and therefore uses gconfd-2(1) for storing its userdata. It offers to configure almost every option from within the GUI. Command-line options include -d to turn on debugging during calls. -c to call another URL.

-d level
turn on debugging (on the console), level should be between 1 and 4.
-c URL
Calls the given URL. Ekiga can be running or not when invoking that option. SIP, H.323 and CALLTO URLs are supported.

/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults/apps/ekiga/
The system wide configuration file. See gconf-config(1) for further details on gconf. (The actual place can differ depending on your system's configuration)
~/.gconf/apps/ekiga
Per user configuration file. See gconf-config(1) for further details.

On startup Ekiga reads the system-wide gconf schemas (like every other GNOME2 app should do) from /etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults/apps. Every modification of the gconf keys using the GUI, gconftool or gconf-editor is reflected in real-time by Ekiga.

More documentation is available in the manual available through Ekiga's Help menu. There is also a FAQ at: http://www.ekiga.org
