12.4. Answering a Call

Depending on the run mode selected for Linphone, there are several ways you would notice an incoming call:

Normal Application

Incoming calls can only be received and answered if Linphone is already running. You then hear the ring sound on your headset or your speakers. If Linphone is not running, the call cannot be received.

GNOME Panel Applet

Normally, the Linphone panel applet would run silently without giving any notice of its existence. This changes as soon as a call comes in: the main window of Linphone opens and you hear a ring sound on your headset or speakers.

Once you have noticed an incoming call, just click Call or Answer to pick up the phone and start talking. If you do not want to accept this call, click Release of Refuse.
