NAME
gnomemeeting - H323 Videoconferencing for UN*X
SYNOPSIS
gnomemeeting [-d]
DESCRIPTION
GnomeMeeting is a H.323 Video Conferencing application which uses the H.323 protocol (provided by the OpenH323 library). It can connect to a variety of other H323 applications including Microsoft NetMeeting. It also supports ILS (the Microsoft version of LDAP) and XDAP servers. GnomeMeeting can work with or without a webcam, and is able to create pure audio communications or traditionnal audio+video communications. GnomeMeeting 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. The only relevant command-line option is -d to turn on debugging during calls.
OPTIONS
-d turn on debugging (on the console)
FILES
/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults/apps/gnomemeeting/ 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/gnomemeeting Per user configuration file. See gconf-config(1) for further details.
ENVIRONMENT
On startup GnomeMeeting 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 GnomeMeeting.
DIAGNOSTICS
The following diagnostics may occur: Please check your gconf settings and permissions, it seems that gconf is not properly setup on your system gconfd-1 is running and you're trying to start gnomemeeting > 0.91 which needs gconfd-2 -> kill gconfd-1 and try again your gconf-dir isn't set to mode 4755 -> set chmod -R 4755 /etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults More problems are described in greater detail in the FAQ and Mailinglist-archive (see BUGS and GETTING HELP).
BUGS
Currently some users are still experiencing problems with gconf, as the gconf-utilization is newly introduced in GNOME2. Hopefully this will be solved once GNOME2 is shipped with all major distributions with working gconf setup. See bugzilla on http://bugzilla.gnome.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=gnomemeeting to obtain the current list of bugs.
