Linphone features encryption, but I can't tell how easy or hard it is to install it on Kodachi.

Re installation on Kodachi:
Kodachi is a very specific distribution, but as far as I understand, there is a possibility to install external/own packages. And as it is based on Ubuntu / Debian, Ubuntu / Debian packages may work.

If unsuccesful with Linphone, do not lose the hope; this application works like a charm for someone/sometimes and fails in another cases, for reasons that are difficult to debug.

Another recommendable applications are
Jitsi Desktop -
Java based, so a little bit resource-hungry, but if it goes fine with your Java version, works well. Relatively easy to troubleshoot, esp. re: audio & video devices.
You can use either deb package, Linux installer or jar file (available at to install it.

Blink -
If it works “out of the box”, then it is rock solid (even more than Jitsi Dekstop). If not, troubleshooting is more demanding. In most cases it needs pulseaudio server running.
Debian / Ubuntu packages available.

Twinkle -
Very lightweight, easy to troubleshoot and again rock solid. But some features (i.e. call recording) are missing. Debian / Ubuntu packages available; but AFAIK they are compiled without ZRTP support, so as you need encryption, it would be necessary to compile it from the sources (and then eventually build a deb package).
