Ekiga is what I use and works fine. However, you have to ensure your 
input sound device is compatible. What kind of device are you using 
(embedded microphone line with standard jack input and separate speakers, 
a dedicated all-in-one headphone...)?

Wikipedia has an extensive list of softphones:


(I have in my radar -though still not tested- Jitsi (a.k.a "SIP 
Communicator"), because it is written in Java and can be run on any OS 
which supports it).

I don't think so (SIP applications use their own methods for getting 
sound in/out). Anyway, does recording/playing work outside SIP programs? 
For instance, using "arecord/aplay" or GNOME sound recorder.
