Re: ekiga-list Digest, Vol 150, Issue 1

Ekiga General mailing list
Note that the Ekiga software is immediately available to all Ubuntu Linux users (including Kubuntu and the like) in the normal Ubuntu software directory. I have installed it in my Kubuntu 18.04.4 LTS system.  I have tried to register the following SIP address at ekiga.net but I am not at all assured that the server is functional. I also have Linphone installed on a Windows 10 system and have likewise registered that address at sip.linphone.org.  However due to a complete lack of opportunity I have not been able to test either software set.   Note that I also have an older laptop that is currently running Kubuntu 20.04, but I haven't even checked if I can install Ekiga on it.  

Since both Ekiga and Linphone claim to use the SIP protocol, then by just switching the registration, users OUGHT to be able to use the ekiga.net -or- sip.linphone.org server with either or both software installations.   Also worth exploring is whether sipbroker.com is still functional and can be used for calls between these SIP servers.  Last but not least Ekiga claims also to use the H.323 protocol, which I haven't heard mentioned since Microsoft Netmeeting disappeared from view in 2007. 

Due to a lack of opportunity for use, I don't normally run either the Ekiga or Linphone software, thus if I were to add the following back into my contact information block, it would  be added to the 'advance arrangement only' section!  Also note that I don't run my Windows 10 computers until I have 'good reason' to do so!

Hi people,

I have asked myself if "ekiga" is still actively maintained.
I'd like to support you with packaging ekiga and distribute it on
flathub and build flatpack images to get ridd of building ekiga by hand.

flatpack:
https://flatpak.org/

about flatpack:
https://docs.flatpak.org/en/latest/


I have tested very long time ago ekiga, and built it on my linux
machine, still it gives me headache to build it.
So, if you support me building ekiga on Gentoo Linux, I would be happy
to make myself familiar making binaries for flathub, so that ekiga is
easily distributed for all Linux Architectures, and that nobody has to
build by hand anymore ekiga through sourcecode.


best, Tamer
