I'm not sure that you need Linux "drivers".

Which VOIP service are you trying to connect with?

Thank you very much for your reply.

Purchased Desktop Internet Telephone from the Maplin.
The box says - VOIP Telecoms, Code: A17JQ
Ideal for Skype and other VOIP applications.
NIKKAI computers.

It would run well with windows, I haven't tried though but I want to use it with Ubuntu.

If you want to use Skype have you tried configuring INSIDE Skype?

Skype>S Button (bottom left)>Options>Sound Devices (Pull down Microphone, Speakers and Ringing)

You might have to experiment. I have a VOIP phone from Tesco's, which is supposed to work with Windows...)

Why didn't you say that was a Maplin part number, not a Skype model number? It looks like a normals USB audio device, have you tried plugging it in and seeing if it is recognised? It should show up in your mixer and be listed with lsusb.

Try Skype without plugging it in and note the available sound devices.

Then plug it in and note the available sound devices.

Is there a diference?
