SIP with Tapioca

After the release of Tapioca for Nokia 770, there have been a lot of discussion, specially on #maemo, about the status of SIP on the UI and the interoperability with another clients. There is a page at Tapioca Wiki explaining the current state of this supoort in the framework. A small quotation:

The main issue that has yet to be solved for full interoperability with other SIP clients is Media traversal trough NAT environments. That means that you can connect (establish a session) to other clients, but you will not be able to make Voice Calls to anyone.

I am currently working on adding support to other kinds of accounts, including SIP, besides Google Talk ones. I hope to have it working along with SIP support on Tapioca.

Updated Xournal Package

After seeing Denis Auroux released a new version (0.3) of Xournal, I ran to update my patches and build the fresh packages for the Nokia 770. If you already have it installed, just refresh your list of packages and then click on the "Check for Updates" button. Otherwise, just follow the instructions of my previous post.

Check the changelog.

Xournal Package for IT2006

Restarting the port of applications to Maemo 2.0, I have decided to start from the easiest one in order to get contact with the new Hildon API. So I present you the Xournal package for IT2006.

To try it, add the following entry to your application manager:

  • Web Address:

  • Distribution: mistral

  • Components: user

The performance has improved a *lot* since the package built for the IT2005. As usual, building the debian package took longer than hacking the code itself. It still depends on libgnomeprintui which will be downloaded automatically from the same repository.

All source and -dev packages are also available in the repository. If you want to try hacking on the source code add the following lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list inside the scratchbox (i386 and armel) environment:

deb mistral user
deb-src mistral user

Have Fun!

P.S.: I apologize for my awful handwriting ;).

For those who are missing libglade dependency, please add the maemo repository entry to you application manager:

Web Address:
Distribution: mistral
Components: free non-free
