I am trying to get Linphone to work on an Ubuntu 16.04 x64 / x86 machine. I have added the following repository via the command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linphone/release

And Linphone 3.9.1 was installed. But - linphone appears to be crashing after I am closing it via the quit command, I am getting a weird Segmentation fault error.

Is there any way I can install one of the latest available Linphone versions? (like 3.12 etc.)

  • Use the command line , type linephonec then help to see the available options – GAD3R Dec 25 '17 at 16:26

It seems that the easiest way to install it is to use Flatpack:

  1. Install Flatpak on Ubuntu

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:alexlarsson/flatpak
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install flatpak
  2. Then install linphone 4.1.1 from Flatpak (only x86_64)

    flatpak --user install --from https://linphone.org/flatpak/linphone.flatpakref
  3. Run Linphone from terminal

    flatpak run com.belledonnecommunications.linphone

or from menu.
