    Question Dial pad doesn't work on skype phone?

    I'm running a Wubi install of Ubuntu 10.04 and Skype version 2.2 Beta. My issue is this, I just bought this Philips VOIP080 Skype Phone and the dial/key pad doesn't work (numbers, start/end call, nothing works). It shows up as an input/output device in PulseAudio so I can select it and I can hear and speak into the microphone and use it in skype, that part works fine. I figure with dial/keypad its some kind of hardware issue cause theres an installation cd that came with the phone but its for windows and even when I tried using the disc using Wine it wouldn't open or do anything, just errors. I looked around the net and forums for an answer, but no one seemed to address the problem with the dial/key pad, so maybe its me? Any ideas?

    See
    http://blog.mypapit.net/2007/08/how-...er-ubuntu.html

    try the xpad.c driver.

    Maybe will be necessary to compile it with USB ids of yours phone or add the Ids to running driver + udev actions.

    Don't ask me how It's out of my knowledge.

    But If you get it work, report here please.
