Ekiga Softphone warning

Asked by Eric Denison on 2008-11-21

I was going to install Ekiga Softphone and am getting a number of warnings stating that it is not a trusted site. Should I continue as the reviews of the site are good and no one in the forums appears to have a problem. Fairly new Ubuntu user, still finding my way around. Cheers. Eric

Have a look under Applications, Internet. Ekiga is already there.

Thanks for the reponse. Was installing the application from the bundle already provided. When I attempted to fill in the required information the warning notices started popping up. Should I just ignore the notices and proceed with the installation.

My terminology is all wrong. Of course the application is already installed, what I should have said is that when I tried to connect with the Ekiga site to set up an account the error notice popped up stating that this is not a trusted site. Hope this makes more sense. Cheers

If you are running Hardy Heron, Ekiga is already installed as standard.

You can easily install Ekiga via Add/Remove in your Applications menu.

Your message is unclear to me ... what bundle already provided ... what required information?

Now I understand. Info coming up.

The trusted site issue is most likely due to your security settings in Firefox. You can safely go ahead.

Additional information that may be useful to you:
Ekiga is not easy to set up. Skype is very much easier.
