NAME
Ekiga - SIP and H.323 Voice over IP and Videoconferencing for UN*X

SYNOPSIS
ekiga [-d level] [-c URL]

DESCRIPTION
Ekiga is a SIP and H.323 VoIP, IP Telephony and Video Conferencing
application which complies to the SIP and H.323 protocols. It can con‐
nect to a variety of other SIP and H323 applications including specific
hardware. Ekiga can work with or without a webcam, and is able to cre‐
ate pure audio communications or traditional audio+video communica‐
tions. Ekiga was formerly known as GnomeMeeting. Ekiga has been
designed for the GNOME desktop and therefore uses gconfd-2(1) for stor‐
ing 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.

OPTIONS
-d level
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.

FILES
/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults/apps/ekiga/
The system wide configuration file. See gconf-config(1) for fur‐
ther details on gconf. (The actual place can differ depending on
your system's configuration)
~/.gconf/apps/ekiga
Per user configuration file. See gconf-config(1) for further
details.

ENVIRONMENT
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.
