Hallo Hans, Ekiga is a lovely program. But now and again something comes in and wrecks it. I suspect it is some sort of modern artifact associated with Windows type stuff. Once you know how to Restore your ekiga.conf the resurrection process is trivial.
I'm on a XP The place and the file is : C:\Documents and Settings\Admin\Application Data\ekiga.conf Here are the generic instructions with some of my own notes intersperesed. Your Linux will be different to my windows. ; ============ If you want to try a new version of Ekiga and want to come back afterwards, you need to save your configuration and use it again once your tests ended. Backing up Ekiga configuration: quit Ekiga if it is running. Then afterwards: on Unices, execute killall gconfd-2, copy directory ~/.gconf/apps/ekiga to a safe place. on Windows, copy %APPDATA%\ekiga.conf file to a safe place. eg. C:\Documents and Settings\Admin\Application Data\ekiga.conf Copied to E:\SOFTWARE\voip software\Ekiga\140103 ekiga.conf Rolling back Ekiga configuration: quit Ekiga if it is running, then afterwards: on Unices, execute kill gconfd-2, remove directory ~/.gconf/apps/ekiga and put in ~/.gconf/apps the ekiga directory you have saved on Windows, copy the saved ekiga.conf back to its place C:\Documents and Settings\Admin\Application Data\ekiga.conf =============== OK, Tony On 15 Apr 2018 at 23:02, Hans Linkels wrote about : Subject : [Ekiga-list] Ekiga hangs at startup > Hello all, > > Ekiga 4.0.1-5 > > Debian Jessie kernel 3.16.0-4-amd64 > > After installation Ekiga worked well.
