$ sudo aptitude install ekiga-snapshot

The recommended source for the packages is:

Changelog include, notably:

* ekiga-snapshot-plugins-all-devices This meta-package will install
support for all know devices by Ekiga (Sound: ALSA and OSS. Video: V4L,
V4L2, Firewire AVC and DC support)

* ekiga-snapshot-plugins-non-free-codecs Non free audio and video codecs
for ekiga snapshot: iLBC audio codec, H.264, H.263-1998 and MP4V-ES
video codec. Check if you have the rights to use them.

* A better support for Ubuntu Gutsy on LPIA architecture (added H.264
Video codec support)

* ekiga-snapshot-ptrace and ekiga-snapshot-develop has been deprecated.

* ekiga-snapshot-gtkonly is an *experimental* version of Ekiga for a
non-GNOME environnement. Feedback is welcome but support might be
