Well, that is good news. So do you know how I can make use of this phone with skype then?
In my skype configurations for Audio devices, I can see the CIT 200 and I have selected for audio in, audio out, and ringing.
But the handset display always says "DISCONNECTED" when plugged into my Linux box. So this is were I'm assuming I have a driver deficiency. In windows it would either say "SKYPE OFFLINE" or "CONNECTED" depending on whether the Skype application was running at the time. I have never seen it say "DISCONNECTED" in Windows. If I completely disconnect the USB cable for the base, the handset will say "SEARCH BASE".
So I can't dial from the handset because it is not speaking to the program. In windows, the phone would load my list of contacts from the application, but in Linux I don't see anything.
If I dial from the skype program, I get no sound.
Here is what i get in dmesg when I connect the USB cable.
I don't see it saying anything about the audio device, but then how does skype know it exists?
