Is there any reason why you don't choose a voip client that runs natively on linux? There are loads of choices (Twinkle, Ekiga, etc.) and then you don't have to be messing around with Wine.

Why not put that as a requirement in your original question? That way no one will have to waste their time. My answer is, I don't know. I think Wengo had some kind of deal like that but I'll leave you to check that out.

Hi,

Just install a SIP client on your Linux box, configure it for your Voipbuster account and you can call using it the same way as you would do using mobile device, Voipbuster client, and so on. Configuration instructions are found on the Voipbuster website.

List of SIP Software OpenSource

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi again,

Most of those VOIP providers ask you buy credits which you can use up and give you 'free days' in return where free days are mostly the number of days you can call for free to a lot of countries both mobile and/or fixed numbers.

I for example use Nonoh (Nonoh, pay about 10 every four months, can call my wife's family in Peru for free (for hours) and use up the credits calling to mobile phones in various countries.

Everything free for free without paying anything? Please let me know if you find it!?

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi Eric,
As I remember it, OpenWengo offered a free deal whereby two registered (no fee required) Wengo users could talk voip-land line or land line-voip at no charge. I tried it for a while and it did work. You could not use it with anyone, only registered Wengo users.
I don't know if that meets the OP's requirements.
cheers,
jdk

The problem is that your question was incomplete---it's always better to give the whole picture.

Suppose you ask how to install Eudora on Linux. The immediate response is going to be to tell you why you don't need to do this (there are many good native Linux e-mail clients.) If say WHY you want to install Eudora, then the response might be a bit different.

As far as I can tell, everyone posting to this thread was being helpful.

Hello jdk,

Thank you very much for this, I'll have a look at it. Always trying to save a or two in these times of crisis.

Kind regards,

Eric

Thank you for this remark Pixellany. I wasn't even considering replying to the OP since in my opinion remarks like he made aren't worth the time. Since everyone here is a volunteer and we're all trying to help each other in any way possible with questions and problems, the least someone can demonstrate in posting is a bit of education.

Kind regards,

Eric

Aaargghh. It was Gizmo not Wengo. All these bloody sip clients with names ending in "o".
Here's the link:

BTW I lived in Girona for 8 years before moving to Italy so we were once near neighbours.

It's very easy nowadays with all those things floating around on the internet, don't beat yourself up about. But thanks for the correction, I'll check it out this weekend.

Proves again that this world is really a small place doesn't it? I planned to move to Spain 3 years ago and did so move in January and loving all about Catalunya.

Bon dia JDK, A10

Velouria, I have managed to install voipbuster in wine by manually installing a few missing dlls. Despite installing correctly, the program does not work. So this answers your question, though I doubt that it actually helps you.

The SIP server of voipbuster (sip.voipbuster.com) can be accessed via (linux) software other than voipbuster's: for example I use twinkle - www.twinklephone.com/
Only trick is to register yourself first through voipbuster software (must use a Windogs machine for this, I am afraid), the rest should be not difficult but please ask if in trouble. You can then get voipbuster's cheap (0p/min) rates, though audio quality is sometimes less than with voipbuster's software. Hope this helps, though it does not answer your question.

Greetings,
Heidi's grandfather

Hi HG,
You may be too late. I think the OP is long gone. As you see from my first post, twinkle was my first suggestion. Grandfathers think alike.
