There is and it's called Asterisk. It's a PBX. If it's your first time using and configuring asterisk, I would HIGHLY recommend using Trixbox instead of Ubuntu until you get used to it (it can be a pain to set up). Once you're comfortable, then go back and get a juju script built for it or something ;) It is available in software center as well, just ...

Ubuntu Phone is not a specific phone, but an operating system to be run on phones. Right now, in development, the official reference models are Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 4. You'll be able to install Ubuntu Phone on either of those, but keep in mind it's not meant to be ready for the public yet – and it will require you to unlock the phone. As of now, there ...

Yes, if you use Skype4Py. I've created a simple callto.py script based on examples/callfriend.py from Skype4Py. It takes a phone number or a friend name from the skype roster as an argument. It's only working if skype is already launched. Skype will ask you if you want to give API permission to Skype4Py. Code follows: #!python # ...

I know that some bluetooth devices will not connect with a phone I used to have. There seems to be some incompatibilities between different BT devices, and there is not much that could be done there. So far, Bluetooth was more trouble that it was worth it. I also had issues with such keyboards that would always disconnect. I know this is not the answer you ...

SIP Clients These all are SIP clients which means they all can be used to call each other and they just need a SIP address (like your mobile number) . You can also register to a commercial VoIP provider(which supports SIP) to place calls to normal phone line or cell phone . You can get a free SIP address from here. Ekiga (available in the software center) ...

The way to get direct USB access to files on the Galaxy is as posted here: http://www.tuxtrix.com/2011/07/how-to-access-samsung-galaxy-s-ii-usb.html This is not about USB debugging but simple telling the Galaxy to connect its storage to PC via USB: On the Galaxy do: Menu -> Settings -> Wireless and network -> USB utilities -> Connect Storage to PC

Since you mentioned RJ11 this likely means you have a standard modem in your computer, this usually means that you need a softphone sometimes called a telephony application that uses the modem to accept and initiate calls using PSTN. If you can find any such application for Ubuntu that you can install and run properly, what you ask may work, I do not know ...

My first question is if ubuntu for android is really the full operating system that lets you run programs just like a desktop pc? Is it super slow where it takes many minutes to load up ubuntu? I don't need blazing speeds, but I'd like something useable. This is Ubuntu for Android. It's not a "mobile version" of Ubuntu. It's a special build of ...

I would advise you to download the firmware of Samsung Galaxy Europa Gingerbread from Sammobile , then install Heimdall to install the firmware onto your device. But make sure your phone is unlocked before doing so.

the best method i found was to use airdroid which works over your wifi and with your browser. you just install the app and follow the simple instructions. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sand.airdroid&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS5zYW5kLmFpcmRyb2lkIl0. you can access all the great things on your phone :-) you can ...

Ubuntu for Phones ROM will be available in late February 2013. The image will be made available for download in late February, and while the only phone we've seen running the OS is a Galaxy Nexus, Shuttleworth made it clear last week that it should be relatively easy to load up the OS on any Android device. Reference: ...

I don't own any wp devices. So this answer goes in kind of assumption and internet research. Anyone wants to correct any information, please do so. Windows Phone 8 only Support MTP and has no Native Mass Storage Support. But you said, it is not even detected on Windows 8 , that is a bit confusing. However, since Windows phone uses MTP, so only we need ...

Ubuntu Touch, and desktop Unity starting in 14.04, will run on top of the new Mir display server. Part of the Mir offering will be XMir, an X server running as a Mir client. This will allow legacy/X11 apps to run on top of Mir without any effort. However, even if this does allow them to run on Ubuntu Touch, most legacy/X11 applications are not designed ...

No. Ubuntu for phone uses some parts which are also used in Android/CyanogenMod. Ubuntu for Android is an Ubuntu on top of an existing and functioning Android. This is not yet implemented. It it clearly planned that the phone connected to Keyboard Mouse and Monitor behaves like a PC. This is also not yet implemented. But from what I can see right now there ...

My understanding is that the Edge is designed to work with Ubuntu Touch and Android as a handset, and when connected to a monitor using HDMI then you see the Ubuntu desktop experience, that is, the phone OS becomes the full Ubuntu Desktop OS on the monitor. I can't speak for Canonical, that however is my understanding.

I think I understand what you mean. I've got Ubuntu 12.10 and by instaling AirDroid, you can access and control your mobile phone from your desktop. There are two modes: One using a central site where you conect and.. bla bla, we guys don't care... but works ok!! The other one is by using mobile phone IP granted by your Wi Fi network, open web broswser on ...

Here's what you need to do: (Before you do this, take note that apps that were moved to SD will disappear as the SD card needs to be unmounted!!!) To mount: Connect the device via usb Go to notification, Set the USB connection mode to MSC (SEMC should pop up) Again in notification > connect phone memory card (this step will unmount your SD card). Wait ...

The answer is here: This is a problem with the usb-modeswitch, if you disable it in /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf => DisableSwitching=1 then it works.

The Ubuntu One mobile clients do not store your password on the phone: rather they store an OAuth access token that is used to authenticate as you to the Ubuntu One services. This is stored on the phone's memory rather than the SIM, so you should probably consider it compromised the same as if it was on the SIM. You can cancel this access token through the ...

What I am asking is, is it possible to stick the usb live image into my phone, so I only need to carry around 1 item, my phone, which can provide the usb live image and the internet connection to any pc which can boot from a usb device? If your phone shows up as a mass-storage device, possibly. (i.e. as a USB SD-card reader). If it also shows up as a ...

There are few discussions with respect to this but they all seem to stop in 2006. The most recent post I have found is: http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=111225 But again this one is from 2006. Can I ask why not just use VOIP?

For Skype, you only need an audio device with a speaker and microphone. The "Skype Phone" devices marketed for plugging into your computer are just a USB soundcard in a phone-shaped package, so if you already have a working sound card that has a microphone input, use that with Skype instead. Skype run nicely on Ubuntu. I usually download the .deb package ...

Bluetooth is a technology based around specifications and profiles. According to the official Bluetooth site many features of the core specification are not required, but are optional. Furthermore, product differentiation is furthered by the use of profiles. Not all devices support all profiles or are made to support them. For example, my Motorola Rokr ...

The first idea that jumps to mind is to just use mplayer . SSH into the remote machine, and control playback normally, DISPLAY=:0.0 mplayer dvd://1 The same could be done with xine too.

In software center, try anyremote (there should be a list of related interfaces if you search for it). On the website you can download a client for your phone. The documentation page contains extensive instructions on how to set up anyremote with your application, and a device for controlling the application remotely. I will update my answer with more ...

VLC has a powerful set of interfaces you can use, including a web interface and a CURSES-based one that I use all the time for streaming video and controlling playback. The web interface can be customized with HTML/CSS for phone control or if you care about branding, and there's quite a bit of documentation available on the VLC wiki. Engadget had a nice ...

You may want to make a specific entry for your phone in order to have it mount where you want it to mount. First, check what the UUID of the devices hooked up to your machine: craig@lister:~$ sudo blkid [sudo] password for craig: /dev/sdb1: UUID="[long-string-of-hex-here]" TYPE="ext4" ... That'll show you what the various UUIDs are for the filesystems on ...
