Not likely to be done by Wirlab. Others: feel free to express yourselves :-)

Integrating it with kontact/kopete means to introduce dependencies on KDE.
Juha Heinanen told me a while ago that you *removed* KDE dependencies intentionally to make it usable without installing KDE. Does kphone still depend on Qt only? The Readme for kphone on debian (still 4.0.3) suggests that it depends on KDE, but in fact it doesn't.
What's your opinion on making kphone a real KDE application (again?)?

 Use this every day

Just wanted to let you know that I use KPhone every day for our SIP set up in the office here at work. The memory leak was my biggest issue, so hopefully that's taken care of.

Thanks for the great work, if you need some help, let me know :)

 Basic Setup Howtos

I just found kphone. The idea (its still an idead to me) sounds wonderful. However, I can't figure out how to get it to work. It's all new to me so a clear and direct howto would be great. In fact, email the info to me and I'll slowly turn it into a howto for newbies as well and anyone else who needs it. Perhaps other volunteers and I can get it together in a few languages.

Thanks for the work,

- ALSA (beta) available at KPhone CVS => http://www.wirlab.net/kphone/
- Speex support not by Wirlab
- video perhaps if there's time
- use Tray Icon in Preferences to hide KPhone

 Not dead?!

Hey, great to see KPhone beeing still alive. :-D

* it should be possible to save the SIP password (not by editing the file and then loosing the changes whenever the config dialog is opened...)

* perhaps a better integration into KDE (use adressbook entries to call someone or to show who is calling :-) )

* QoS ensurance or sth. like that. It happens quite often that I sign into my sip-service and when someone calls the quality is _really_unuseable_. Since it can get better when I close kphone and reconnect (sometimes several times) I guess I get some other round-robin SIP-gateway - perhaps KPhone could test the line quality (latency/jitter)? Don't know if this is even possible with SIP.

That's all for now :-)

Thank you very much for bringing VoIP to KDE!!

 KPhone development

I asked some questions about where KPhone development was heading a couple of months ago. Here's an excerpt from the reply I received:

Date: Sunday 18 July 2004 19:25
From: Juha Heinanen

Q: Are there any plans for KPhone to use the same addressbook as KAddressBook?

A: kphone is no longer a kde application, since many kphone users are not kde users.

Q: Are there any plans for storing SIP-account credentials (username and password) in KWallet?

A: same answer as above.

I think KPhone is the beginning of a great application but in order to become great the following issues need to be addressed:

* Doesn't store addresses in KDE addressbook
* Doesn't store SIP credentials in KDE Wallet
* OSS support needs to be scrapped in favour of ALSA
* Minor issues with sound quality, stability and usability

By reading the reply from the developers it's clear that this is not the direction Kphone is headed - and for them I think they've made the right choice. However this leaves us with a missing piece of software that the KDE needs. Someone either needs to convince the developers to go in our direction or use the existing code and fork our way.

I've written a lot about the flaws in KPhone and I would like to take the time to mention some of the things that KPhone does well. It _works_, unlike any of the alternatives I've tried. If you are looking for a SIP-phone then start with this one.

 Setup a new account

 
 by mykill on: Nov 2 2004
 
Score 50%

One way Kphone could be greatly improved is to auto-setup a new account for any new installation via SIPphone's plug-n-dial. See: http://www.plugndial.com Many other software and hardware devices support plug-n-dial and it makes the product much more usable since users don't have to configure at all.

This open standard is 100% free and allows a user to create an account all within Kphone and all the settings are configured so they can immediately begin calling.

There is other commercial software like xten that uses it as well as other open source software like Phonegaim see: http://www.phonegaim.com

It's free to implement and would really help Kphone be a better product.

Just a suggestion.

Hi!

This will have to be taken into consideration, though I have to admit we're not that keen on these kinds of additions... I guess at present we're pretty much assuming that everybody have their SIP-providers ready to rock'n'roll when and before obtaining KPhone.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
