Hi,

I have one of those phones it sort of works for me using ekiga. The voice part of it works absolutely fine. The keypad adds a number into whatever text box you have open.

Some problems are the hang up button doesn't work, and the up key scrolls up in epiphany/evince etc.

Hi Dean,

Thank you for responding ! I'd like to use the box with Skype. Only
interested in the voicepart really, so your answer sounds promising. My main
problem is how to set / recognize the box as a sound device (/dev/dspX), so
I can use that in Skype.

Thanks for your help!

Making that skypemate program running would be nice too.

Hi Dean,

I've got one of these devices as well, however I can't make the sound part work on kubuntu Dapper.
Kubuntu appear to detect the hardware as a sound card "VOIP USB PHONE" but it doesn't seems to work, I can't hear anything.
Did you do something to make it work? what distribution do you use?

Thanks.

It's working fine for me using Gnome in Dapper. Gnome gives you a way to change the default sound device and their properties (e.g. mute), I can't remember whether or not I played around with that to be honest but it may be worth looking into the KDE equivalent.

It might be worth investigating if the KDE equivalent of Ekiga uses ESD or ALSA or something else for the sound system too

Can you help with this problem?
