Ekiga(1)			 Version 2.00			      Ekiga(1)

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 ap-
       plication 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  cre-
       ate  pure  audio	 communications	 or traditional	audio+video communica-
       tions. Ekiga was	formerly known as GnomeMeeting.	 Ekiga	has  been  de-
       signed 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.

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 de-
	      tails.

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.

DOCUMENTATION
       More documentation is available in the manual available through Ekiga's
