gvcall by jwc < http://jwcxz.com > (note that this project has obsolete dependencies) INTRODUCTION gvcall is a simple utility to make a phone call with Google Voice from the command line. The major feature of this program is to integrate Google Voice and Linphone's command-line mode to make calling a number easy. SETUP 0. If you don't already have a way to receive incoming calls to a VoIP account, see these instructions on my blog: http://blog.jwcxz.com/?p=599 I use Antisip and IPKALL to achieve this. 1. Setup Linphone with your SIP server information (again, see the link above for more detailed instructions). 2. Get pygooglevoice at: http://code.google.com/p/pygooglevoice/ AUR Package: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=38993 3. Install gvcall wherever you want and run it with no arguments. This will create a default configuration file at ~/.gvcall 4. Edit ~/.gvcall using the instructions provided in the comments. 5. Run gvcall -h for a list of options, or to get started right away, just do gvcall phonenumber NOTES Other Functionality You can also add other phone numbers to call with using a simple alias system in ~/.gvcall. For example, say that you sometimes have your mobile phone next to you and want to call a number using that. You could set altnums to be altnums=mobile:5555555555 and then run gvcal -m mobile phonenumber Passwordless Access pygooglevoice provides a configuration file at ~/.gvoice where you can enter your Google username and password if you don't want to be prompted every time you want to make a call.
