What is Tapioca
Tapioca is a framework for Voice over IP (VoIP) and Instant Messaging (IM). Its main goal is to provide an easy way for developing and using VoIP and IM services in any kind of application. It was designed to be cross-platform, lightweight, thread-safe, having mobile devices and applications in mind. Tapioca's main goals are:
- Create a solution that integrates all components used by VoIP and IM applications in a single, reliable and easy to use framework, which is able to work on different platforms.
- Spare resources, providing central services for multiple applications. Eg.: The control of all incoming and outgoing SIP requests are managed by the SIP service, avoiding the creation of one SIP stack and allocation of a network port for each SIP-based application.
- Reduce the overhead of control layers and library dependencies.
Tapioca has NAT Transversal, Python Bindings and full interoperability with GoogleTalk since version 0.3.0
Installing Tapioca on Ubuntu 6.06 Dapper Drake
Untar and put all packages in your HOME directory. Hit Alt+F2 and type "Konsole" (on Kubuntu) or "Terminal" (on Ubuntu)
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
If this configuration doesn't work and if your system has this folder /usr/local/share/dbus-1/services you may follow the next steps. The only trick here is that you need to tell Dbus to also look in /usr/local when the session starts, so open up /etc/dbus-1/session.conf (replace: <editor> with "gedit" for Ubuntu or "Kate" for Kubuntu, obviously without quotes):
gksudo gedit /etc/dbus-1/session.conf
and find this line:
Then add this line right below it:
Restarting dbus doesn't seem to do the trick here so just restart your X session and startup Tapioca. You'll find it under Applications -> Internet.
Installing Tapioca on Ubuntu 5.10 Breezy Badger
Add the following lines to your
deb http://extindt01.indt.org/tapioca/apt breezy main
And then run the following commands to install:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install tapiocaui0.3
Launch Tapioca from Applications->Internet menu or run tapiocaui from command line.
Open your favorite terminal (ALT+F2) and launch alsamixer: Go to "All" View Search for Mic and Mute it Search for Mic Boost and Mute it Search for Capture and increase the Volume That's it! PS.: Any doubt on how to use alsamixer, launch it and press the F1 key.
