I am running Mint 11 on a netbook and am a regular user of SKYPE. ( Headphones + Microphone ). I have been given a Sony VN-CX1 Skype Mouse Phone.
"VN-CX1 is Sony's extraordinary Skype mouse phone.
The Sony Skype Mouse Phone features a multi-function mouse that can be opened up like a cell phone. It acts like a normal PC mouse when it's closed. Smooth motion and comfortable. Bright LED light that corresponds with the sensor for better and fluently movement. When Sony VN-CX1 opens up, it can be used like a telephone with a loud speaker. Adopts echo cancellation function to reduce the echo at a peculiar telephone call. The LED light flashes plus a ringtone when someone is calling. The volume can be adjusted by rolling the mouse wheel."
This works well as a Mouse, but I cannot get it to function as a USB Phone. All the documentation points me towards Windows applications - is there any way that I can get this to function on either Mint or Ubuntu.
