Are you looking for aps under Gnome or console?

Under the console you have a few options:

First you can use Asterisk directly with the sound card stuff.  I used this 
for a long time.

There are three SIP clients for the console that I know of, two of which I 
never got working but I was trying to compile from source on a machine 
running some old versions of things.

Twinkle is in C and has quite a few dependencies.  I know of a few people 
who are using it.

Shtoom is a SIP phone written in Python.  A release has not been roled for 
a long time and anyone who uses it seems to be using the developmention 
version from SVN.

The only one I've managed to use is linphone.  It also has a GUI, but it as 
a simple text interface which works.    The command syntax is a bit 
exacting but it works.  For the English page, visit

NOte that Linphone 2.0 is out but I've not tried it.

Hope some of this helps.
