Re: [Ekiga-list] Cannot answer calls (no popup window)

I have the same setup opensuse 11.1 and ekiga 3.0.1 and get the same problem.

The difference in my case is that it varies,
1) I have had the popup occur click on it and answer the call as normal.
2) The ring occurs and no popup
3) the ring occurs and it is ringing for an extended time and then the pop occurs.

I have never seen the notification box in the tray.
Is there a setting for this?
To be clear I do have the icon in the tray which normally shows a green circle.
When I answer a call it shows a set of headphones.
Is it supposed to show something else?

Ekiga 3.0.x can be compiled with libnotify support or without. If it is
compiled with libnotify support, you get a nice notification in the
notification area like in the following screenshot :

My guess is that Ekiga has been compiled with libnotify support, but for
some reason, the notification can not be displayed.

Try running it in a terminal, perhaps there are warnings that could lead
you to a solution.

	Hi Damien, and thanks for the response.
Sorry, I forgot to mention that I had already tried the terminal, and running
ekiga in debug mode(s) also, but didn't see anything suspicious (lots of
messages related to ALSA and the video, but nothing that looked like it could
be related to this when I receive a call).

Additionally, I just finished a new opensuse 11.1 installation in a laptop
and the same thing happens yet again! I did it mostly because both of the
previous installations were done in 64 bits processors and I wanted to try with the 32 bit version of the distribution. No difference. Btw, one of the
ekiga installations was downloaded -as binaries- from, so I am
pretty sure the problem has to be related to Suse's system installation, not
ekiga itself.

I am very puzzled by the fact that nobody else has reported this here or in
SuSE forums. If I have managed to find this problem in 3 out of 3
installations with different hardware somebody else must have seen it with this distribution. I have found reports of people who have it working, though.
Anyway, I'll keep trying.

	Thanks again.
