Hello Everyone:

After reading posts on the forum for over 4 straight hours, I finally cut the plastic off and plugged in my magicjack.(VirtualBox)

I did not mount anything or do any configurations in openSUSE
In VirtualBox under USB Devices I selected "Tiger Jet Network, Inc. USB Internet Phone By Tiger Jet[0044]"

Immediately after selecting the USB device, the magicjack did all of the installation and update routines and was immediately usable.

Very good sound quality on both ends and I can dial with the keys on my phone.

No additional software or hacks required.

I would love to run the magicjack natively on linux but I don't believe that is possible right now.

System Information:

Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3 GHz (Hyperthreaded)
4 GiB Ram (3.5 recognized)
Multiple hard drives
nVidia GeForce FX 5200 Video Card
3D driver: NVIDIA 173.14.2
openSUSE 11.3(i586)
KDE 4.4.4 “release 3”
Oracle VirtualBox 3.2.12 r68302:
General
Windows XP Service Pack 3
System
Base Memory: 1024 MB
Processor(s) 1
Display
Video Memory 128 MB
3D Acceleration Enabled

Audio
Host Driver ALSA Audio Driver
Controller ICH AC97
Network
Adapter 1 Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop(Bridged adapter, eth0)

I hope that this helps someone.....

Good Luck With Your Magic Jacks

Hi all. I am a new Linux user and a new Magicjack owner.

I initially tried VirtualBox but it didn't work. Everything loaded fine but it just didn't work.

I installed VMware 3.1 (and used windows XP) and it appears to be working perfect. Sound quality is great even though I am using a six year old computer with a lightweight DSL.

A bonus to this setup is that MJ doesn't cause my computer to 'loose focus' when I am doing other things with it because it is running in the background in its own virtual machine.

Linux is awesome. I wish I knew more about it, that will just take time.

I also tried virtual box and had similar results with UBuntu and KNoppix 6.2 which are both Debian(Lenny core) based.

I tried VMware player and it worked without a lot of tinkering. This is good for me because I don't have the apptitude to learn all the ins and outs of Linux just to get my MJ to work without a BJ and a hammer.
