Re: substitute for Skype

Hi Guixers,

Sorry, I forgot to mention "mumble" besides "Jami" and "Jitsi Meet".

Only Jami and  Mumble are available in Guix.

mumble: Version 1.4.230
Defined at      gnu/packages/telephony.scm:556 (guix channel)
Installation command: guix install mumble

Package details of mumble

Mumble is an low-latency, high quality voice chat software primarily intended for use while gaming. Mumble consists of two applications for separate usage: mumble for the client, and murmur for the server.

There is 1 version available for this package.

sbcl-cl-murmurhash 0.0.0-1.5433f5e 32-bit version of Murmurhash3 for Common Lisp

There are 10 packages available for mumble.
1 for mumble, 9 for murmur, which belong together, as far as I understand it.

Has somebody got experience with Jami or Mumble?

Thanks for all answers,

I want to use my laptop and talk to somebody or even exeptionally to others (several people) in a room, connected through one laptop. (through more laptops - I haven't done it yet, so I don't know)

Earlier I used Skype.

Jitsi Meet isn't in guix. But Jami is there.

There are 8 packages for Jami, do I need to install all of them?

ffmpeg-jami    4.4.2    Audio and video framework htttps://

jami    20220726.1515.da8d1da    Qt Jami client

jami-gnome    20220726.1515.da8d1da    Qt Jami client

jami-qt    20220726.1515.da8d1da    Qt Jami client

libjami    20220726.1515.da8d1da    Jami core library and daemon

libring    20220726.1515.da8d1da    Jami core library and daemon

node-jsondiffpatch    0.3.11    Diff & Patch for Javascript objects

pjproject-jami    2.11-0.e1f389d    Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) stack

Additionally, I guess, I have to set up "jami-service-type"

I think Jami may be the closest thing to Skype we have.  If you are
interested in setting up persistent conference rooms, you may be
interested in the jami-service-type as well, which makes it easy to host
such on headless servers.
