I am running UbuntuStudio 7.10 and Ekiga 2.0.11.
I have a little trouble with the audio at times but usually can work
it out to the point of carrying on a conversation. Video has worked
fine on my system as well. Many time I suspect the mic on both ends.
Mine has been stepped on but I intend to invest in a good one that I
can snap to my collar.
I an running a P4 with 1GB of ram and 122GB H.D.
Lets see if we can't get together on Ekiga and work out your problems.
I am in Montana USA with Mounton time.
