How do I register a URL handler for the sip: protocol in Gnome / Ubuntu?

Many applications will register themselves as a URL protocol handler when you install them. First check that you don't already have a suitable handler registered.

If you need to register a protocol, open a terminal and enter the following commands

gconftool-2 -s /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/sip/command '/path/to/app %s' --type String

gconftool-2 -s /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/sip/enabled --type Boolean true

Replace /path/to/app with the path to your chosen application.
