This post is a copy-paste of my friend Luca‘s post earlier about Twinkle configuration howto, however for ekiga (because I like webcam support ). I decided to write this article to help people to configure their Fedora Talk account (but of course, this article is general purpose ) (you can find some information on the official fedora Talk website)
Enabling VOIP account on Fedora Talk
Configuring Ekiga with Fedora Talk account.
You can do some tests calling:
- 1001 (firstname.lastname@example.org) that read you some sentences
- 1002 (email@example.com) that’s a echo test service
For conferencing, you can take a look here.

Use livna repository to install gspca for Webcam Kernel Module.
# yum install gspca
For the first, as root type:
# modprobe gspca
Then launch the skype 2.0 beta.
I had an annoying problem with the headset I had. I could only hear my friend through only one ear. Googling a bit, showed that I should use plughw listed for sound in/out.
Now I have webcam and audio support for skype
