ekiga [-d level] [-c URL]
Ekiga is a SIP and H.323 VoIP, IP Telephony and Video Conferencing application which com-
plies 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.
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.
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)
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.
