How to call phone or mobile from Pidgin-SIPE

    In some companies, the admins may open the phone call permission for their Lync accounts, so that they can call others' phone/mobile from Lync directly. In MS Lync client, we have a dial-in panel to dial the numbers, but it seems that I can't find the same option in Pidgin-SIPE. So does anyone know if it's possible to do this?
    Thanks for your time.

    Accounts -> Office Communicator account -> Call a phone number...

    Pidgin doesn't have a dial pad UI (yet).

    I noticed that there's a patch for the dial pad UI, but I don't know how to install it,Googled, but all steps failed. Thanks.

    Anyone to help? I checked, no "call a phone number" option. I'm using the latest version of Pidgin(2.10.7).

    version 1.16.0 "HTTP Rewrite & Subscription Fixes" (2013-06-14)
           - add menu entry to make a call with a phone number (Jakub Adam)

    ... or maybe your platform doesn't support Voice & Video feature at all, i.e. in the Buddy context menu the call features are also ghosted.

    I'm using Xubuntu 12.04 LTS with the latest updates. SIPE version is 1.17. I installed all the things from PPA source, not sure which part is wrong. Thanks for all your help.
