Hi Tony,

It is weird. This morning I started Ekiga again. Camera went on, saw the picture and Ekiga did not hang. The error message about the network is still there but that is irrelevant. Ekiga is functional and I could make a call.

The computer was suspended overnight but definitely not reset. The only thing I can imagine is that another application was claiming the camera. And by closing the other application the camera was released. I don't care, I don't use Ekiga with a camera. It just should not hang.

I was unable to find ekiga.conf. Used "sudo find / -name "*ekiga.conf*" ". But it is not there. I also started with "-d 3" to see if the log output would show the config file opened, no way. The settings are retained, really. There is no ~/.gconf/apps/ekiga directory (after I deleted it).

Thanks anyway, at least Ekiga works again.

Kind regards

Hallo Hans,

I didn't answer your question . > How do I delete all Ekiga settings wherever they are?

Yes, *Find that ekiga.conf .* Rename it and you are good to go and do a fresh instal.

Let us know.
