Decibel is a realtime communication framework based on Telepathy. It is meant to integrate VoIP, text chat, CTI (computer telephone integration), and similar applications into the user's desktop.

The project consists of a desktop neutral policy daemon called Houston and desktop specific components for user interaction.

Houston is a plain, non-graphical Qt application which is supposed to get started when a user logs in. It is a policy daemon, which opens communication channels for the user and starts components in response to events triggered.


Qt >= 4.2.x
