Good day Ladies/gentlemen
I was just introduced to Linux official a few days ago : The problem I am having I am trying to Set up Magic Jack on Ubuntu 9.10, and I have no clue how to get it to work, I need your help !
Thanks in Advance:
They do have plans for a Linux client "real soon now"
But, until then, getting MagicJack to work in an Ubuntu environment means either running a Windows environment or figuring out the codes and setting up a VOIP client. Neither of these two options, from what I can tell in reading discussions, works as well as one might hope.
I bought a MagicJack a few months ago. It wouldn't run in Linux, and it wouldn't run in a VM. I found a refurbished Atom processor system for under $200 and run it on that (My main concern was finding something that used as little electricity as possible). My phone bill was ~50/month. It is now $1.5. Total investment $220 + $1.5/month. In 4.5 months I break even (Well, 5 really since I've already paid for the first year when I bought it). I don't have to mess w/ protecting my Linux system from anything the MJ might do, and since nobody uses the Windows system other than the phone, it is pretty stable.
