gnomemeeting - H.323 Videoconferencing for UN*X
gnomemeeting [-d level] [-c URL]
GnomeMeeting is a H.323 Voip, Telephony and Video Conferencing applica-
tion which uses the H.323 protocol (provided by the OpenH323 library).
It can connect to a variety of other H323 applications including
Microsoft NetMeeting. It also supports ILS (the Microsoft version of
LDAP) servers. GnomeMeeting can work with or without a webcam, and is
able to create pure audio communications or traditionnal audio+video
communications. GnomeMeeting has been designed for the GNOME desktop
and therefore uses gconfd-2(1) for storing its userdata. It offers to
configure almost every option from within the GUI. Command-line options
include -d to turn on debugging during calls. -c to call another URL.
-d turn on debugging (on the console), level should be between 1
-c Calls the given URL. GnomeMeeting can be running or not when
invoking that option. H.323 and CALLTO URLs are supported.
The system wide configuration file. See gconf-config(1) for fur-
ther details on gconf. (The actual place can differ depending on
your system’s configuration)
Per user configuration file. See gconf-config(1) for further
On startup GnomeMeeting reads the system-wide gconf schemas (like every
other GNOME2 app should do) from /etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults/apps.
Every modification of the gconf keys using the GUI, gconftool or gconf-
editor is reflected in real-time by GnomeMeeting.
