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


       ekiga [-d level] [-c URL]


       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 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.


       -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.


              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.


       More documentation is available in the manual available through Ekiga's Help  menu.  There
       is also a FAQ at:
