Baresip installation

I had installed the SIP client baresip from the software center. But then, I look on my application - and do not see it. There is one topic in this forum, where a config folder ~/.baresip is mentioned, but I also do not have this folder.
The software center shows me that baresip is installed.
What should I do to access baresip on my PC?

Not every application has a menu shortcut or GUI. Always check upstream documention:

Documentation on configuring baresip can be found in the Wiki.

GitHub - baresip/baresip: Baresip is a modular SIP User-Agent with audio and video support

You may have misread or misinterpreted the topic you referenced. There is a .config folder within your User folder; .baresip appears to be a file, if the suggested location was ~/.baresip. If it doesn’t exist, you may be expected to create it yourself. :man_shrugging:

These files and folders are hidden by default, as is any file/folder prefixed by a period . – they may be seen from your file manager by using the Ctrl+h key combination.

However, if you are suggesting that you don’t have a ~/ (/home/your-user-name) folder, then I suggest you have greater issues.

The first run of baresip from terminal creates the ~/.baresip directory with 5 files
edit config and uncomment this line
next time when you start it will inform you if SIP account is missing and

into panel.
Fill out the account and config details. I"m not savvy at baresip details.

After restarting my PC, I searched baresip in the application and found an entry.

Now I’m looking forward to get baresip configured.

I defined my Sipgate account in the router, it is a ZyxelSpeedlink 5501. The Zyxel shows this Sipgate account to be valid. Now I defined in ./baresip/accounts the following:
