Zfone in stand-alone form and the Google Desktop hard drive search-indexing engine are completely incompatible. If you have both, you'll find that zfoned isn't running if you do a process check:

ps –A

If you need to run Zfone, shut down Google Desktop and start the zfoned daemon manually:

# /etc/init.d/zfone restart

Then choose Start > Internet > VoIP Encryption (or Zfone, depending on your specific menu setup) and restart Zfone.

You can find error messages in these log files:


You can also consult the Zfone issues list, but Linux users won't find it very useful. Be sure to report any bugs you find.
