Installation notes

Ekiga settings are stored:

  • for ekiga >= 3.4: in your Application Data directory, such as C:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\Local Settings\Application Data.
  • for ekiga version <= 3.3.2: in %APPDATA%\ekiga.conf directory. To find out the value of %APPDATA% on your computer (it may be something like c:\Users\root\AppData\Roaming), open a command terminal and type echo %APPDATA%.

To see that file, you may need to activate show hidden files and directories.

You can edit the settings with a editor such as wordpad.

Ekiga is a 32-bit program but it also works on 64-bit machines.

Known issues

  • The automatic discovery of users on the same network (called neighbours) does not work on Windows (see: this bug).
  • The camera takes around 4-7 seconds to initialise at the beginning of each communication (see: this bug).
