[Linphone-users] [Linux] Initiating a call from the cmdline

I was looking for a way to start calls from the cmdline and I found linphonec 
and linphonecsh. None of them seems to start the call in a (running) desktop 
UI though. This would be very useful though for initiating a call from e.g. a 
standalone addressbook.

An example for that is e.g. twinkle can be used to initiate a call directly 
from kaddressbook using the cmd

twinkle --call %N --immediate

where the manpage describes

      --call <address> 

             Instruct Twinkle to call the address.  When Twinkle is already 
running, this will instruct the running process to call the address.  The 
address may be a full or partial SIP URI. A partial SIP URI will be completed 
with the information from the user profile. 

             A subject may be passed by appending '?subject=<subject>' to the 

             Examples: twinkle --call 123456 twinkle --call 

Many thanks
