There should be no difference, are you sure you have not done something
different, for ex. disabling the video on your computer?

RESPONSE: video not disabled.

I do not understand something: you say no window appears, still you
tried echo test?!

RESPONSE:  yes,  but phrase  'window appears' is wrong/incomplete, should be 'window content appears' (i.e. the local video data).

Finally, in ekiga-stderr I see that no video codec is selected, be sure
to select h261 and theora.  Have you unchecked them?  When you installed
ekiga, do you remember what you have chosen in Configuration Assistant
at Connection Type page?

RESPONSE: I have just redone the Configuration Assistant when Ekiga is invoked from the command line. There are no video codecs to select (no checkboxes), but when running ekiga interactively there are video codec choices and all are ticked.

As I told you, you cannot call reliably a computer in the same network

RESPONSE: I don't understand why this is not possible. If this is never going to be possible, what is the work round? 

And the segmentation error was fixed after your
ekiga version.

I do not have enough time to check the video multi-coloured rectangles,
especially that there are chances that it got fixed in a version of
ekiga more recent than your version.

RESPONSE:  What do I need to do in order to get a more recent binary version for Windows XP and Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and Ubuntu 10.04.03 LTS?

This is very simple to change, but I think other users disagree.

RESPONSE:  I think the red and green handset are buttons so it would be more natural to click them once.
