@jungliztik, I have no idea about your issue, but I can think of 2 things I woudl try out if I were you:

1.- Try removing Zoiper's configuration from your home directory. Alternatively, you could can create a new test user and see if it works with it. 2.- You could launch it using the strace command which should print out a lot of information that might help you understand what's going on.

I hope it helps! ;-)

I reinstalled my box recently and am now having issues with this package. It installs fine, however, when I attempt to launch it, the app never appears (no window, no icon in the notification area)

If I attempt from the CLI (to see if there are any messages), I just get the following:

APP Started! [ PID: 43740 ]
APP Exit [ PID: 43740 ]

I have tried as non-priviledged and priviledged users using sudo.

Any thoughts/suggestions welcome.

For anyone else who has the sound issue with 5.5.7 a fix that worked for me was removing all the selected codecs with the exception of "G.711 mu-law" and "G.711 a-law"

Actually, never mind. It's as simple as copying the 5.5.6 bin file over the existing one in the /usr/lib/zoiper folder. Thank you for your time.

@aminvakil Thank you. I have it. I was wondering if there's a way to do this using downgrade or another utility.

@corneabogdan84 Someone opened an issue here about this recent bug:

If you could find 5.5.6 version, yes.

corneabogdan84 commented on 2021-11-02 16:25 (UTC)

Is there any way I can downgrade to version 5.5.6? 5.5.7 has introduced a sound bug where the voice on the other end sounds like a mouse.

Sorry. My bad, have removed the comment.
