hi, after somedays absent... my webcam is a Creative Notebook PD1170, 
recognized like PD1171 (but works fine), device V4L and i have 
info.linux.driver "gspca".  With ekiga 2.0.12 works fine, with the same 
driver.  I reinstalled ekiga 2.0.12 because the usability of 3.0 is not good 
for me.  

I finded some "small" differences between this 2 versions:
- the information from names of my addressbook was lost, I use KUBUNTU (after 
reinstall 2.0.12 version I find them)
- the GUI is less responsive, for example, when i send a sms (with pc-to-phone 
account with diamondcard) there are, sometimes, a longtime before appear the 
window for the message

these bugs are fixed in the snapshot version? or in the 3.0.1 test deb package 
if there are one?


P.S. sorry if there are some copies for same email, i had an error in my smtp 
server and identities configuration.. oups..
