Either one. Actually, whenever I use the keyboard, the buttons highlight on the dialpad, even if I'm not using the mouse.

Thanks. I'll see if I can find an updated package, otherwise I'll build one and see if it's fixed.

I was hoping to just type "sip:00" and then paste and have ekiga dial the number, but alas it does not. I wrote a little sed one-liner to get around this but it'd be nice if ekiga could strip out illegal characters like - and () and spaces.
