recently, my provider and ekiga stopped being incompatible (still don't
know whose fault it was), but as a result I can now use ekiga for my
phone calls, which made me very happy.
However, there is an odd issue with my sound driver. I am using
snd-bt-sco from http://bluetooth-alsa.sourceforge.net/ which allows me
to use ekiga with my Sony Ericsson bluetooth headset.
First some explanation: Everytime the audio device is opened, it takes
about a second until the headset beeps and I can hear sound. Everytime
the audio device is closed, it takes about a second again, then it beeps
again and the headset disables itself.
Now, when I make an outgoing call, this is what happens: When it is
ringing on the other end, the audio device is opened and closed
everytime I hear the ringing sound. Even worse, when someone picks up
the phone on the other end, the audio device is opened and is takes a
second or two until the headset beeps and I can hear and speak. This
confuses everyone I call, some even hang up when they say their name and
I don't respond.
Is it possible to only open the audio device at the beginning of the
outgoing call and not close it until the call ends? This would fix my
problem as the open-/close delay will only happen once at the beginning,
when nobody has picked up yet anyway.
Thanks for your answers
