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 # ...

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 ...

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 ...

No it won't. Jailbrocken iDevice are only just having root access the device. The bootloader to these devices are locked and they will only boot iOS. And also the android phones whose bootloader are locked can't install it.

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 ...

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 ...

While USB Debugging option is disabled Samsung Galaxy SII is working as a MTP device and in this case Ubuntu can not see files on the phone. When I enable USB debugging option and connect my phone with USB cable Ubuntu recognise my phone as USB mass storage device and I can access my files.

I'm a Software Developer at Canonical, author of Ubuntu One Files. We have this feature on our TODO list as it has also been requested by other users via support email. Thus, we plan to implement this in Ubuntu One Files, stay tuned.

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) ...

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 ...

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.

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?

You can manage which devices have access to your Ubuntu One account. Simply go into your account settings and delete the stolen phone.

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 ...

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 ...

Have you tried throught VirtualBOX (with USB support) on a legacy virtual Windows installation? Other solution, is to use a BartPE or Hiren's Boot CD with a "live" Windows environment... This can work if no other solution helps you!

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 ...
