Well, then it appears to be me. But ... me on two separate computers? Both with Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10.
Started from scratch. A computer I had not touched yet and that already had ekiga on it. I installed libopal3.6.4-plugins-non-free from the link above (only missing dependency that I did not have at the time but installed then was libavcodec52).
Still no h262. Results from a dpkg -s:
Status: install ok installed
Maintainer: Debian VoIP Team <email@example.com>
Depends: libopal3.6.4, libavcodec52, libc6 (>= 2.3.6-6~), libgcc1 (>= 1:4.1.1), libstdc++6 (>= 4.2.1), libx264-67 (>= 1:0.svn20090516)
Description: OPAL non-free codecs (iLBC, h264, h263-1998, mp4v-es)
This package contains some of the Debian non-free plugins of the OPAL
library: iLBC audio codec, and h264, h263-1998 and mp4v-es video codecs.
The OPAL project aims to create a full featured, interoperable, Open Source
implementation of the H.323 and SIP protocols that can be used freely by
everybody. These protocols are most used for Voice over IP (VoIP)
Two computers, both ones that I personally installed with Ubuntu NBR 9.10. The package says h264. Others get it. So it HAS to be me. But I can't for the life of me think of where I am going wrong.
dpkg -s ekiga:
Temujin, can you provide the versions of your libopal, libopal plugins-non-free, and ekiga?
