So, the OS recognizes there is a phone plugged in, I get a dial tone, and everything seems to work until I try to dial out. After that, I get nothing on the line. I can't seem to figure out what I need to do, and I'm a serious Newb (to computers, internet, Linux, Magic Jack, you name it). I don't want Windows anywhere near my PC, as when I tried to install it, it wanted to wipe my PC's hard drive and with it, Linux Mint 10 Julia (which, while more complicated than Windows 7, is far superior and I am kinda growing attached to it). How can I make Magic Jack work in Linux? I will need replys to be stated in Layman's terms. Also, if it makes any difference, I'm running on a Toshiba Satellite L-505, 3 GB RAM, expandable to 8 GB (supposedly), and a 320 GB Hard Drive.
