As I mentioned in my last questions I have migrated into Ubuntu some days ago. Before I used Windows 7 and had a software for working with NGN. I used it to connect to Telephone Provider and make a call. Only thing I needed is to register in Telephone Provider and get username and password.

But as I am in Ubuntu I can't unfortunately use it. I tried to install and use it in Wine. It has been installed, but when I try make a call it crashes. The name of that software was View OpenEye.

Does anybody know analogue of this software under Ubuntu? I need it so much, so please help a poor linux beginner.

Update 1
From my telephone company the recommended me to install X-Lite application. But once installing it I am getting error ./xtensoftphone: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory. Does anybody have an idea what is wrong?

You need to provide some more context here. Do you use some sort of ISDN modem or a router to connect to your provider? – Benjamin Bannier Jun 27 '10 at 1:36
No, it is only application that using my internet connection connects to my Telephone provider. – Bakhtiyor Jun 27 '10 at 15:38

I have found Twinkle and installed it right now. And it is what I wanted. Twinkle is a softphone for your voice over IP and instant messaging communcations using the SIP protocol. You can use it for direct IP phone to IP phone communication or in a network using a SIP proxy to route your calls and messages.
So, I am getting used to Ubuntu step by step finding analogue of all my Win Softs in Ubuntu.
And I really like Ubuntu. It is great OS.
