Return to Twinkle.

Personal tools

NOTE: This is particulary trivial for the Debian distribution.

Twinkle is a Voice over IP ( VoIP ) application. Its purpose is to make phone calls via the Internet, instead of using the telephony network. Here is a way to get the command line twinkle working on Debian.

apt-get install twinkle

It will install some dependencies (about 83.0 MB for me) but after Twinkle have the advantage to be quite ergonomic and lightweight!(about 15Mo in memory)

If you have some trouble to change some settings like the sound, you can modify it by editing the file ~/.twinkle/twinkle.sys for example, alsa:


You will probably need to switch between some profil of sound!:

# alsactl -f /usr/share/openmoko/scenarios/voip-handset.state restore

At the end of the utilisation you switch back using:

# alsactl -f /usr/share/openmoko/scenarios/stereoout.state restore
