gvcall

(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.
