Help with KDE?

http://forums.opensuse.org – I realize this is proprietary software, but the problem isn't with Skype but KDE. I recently installed the latest beta of skype downloaded from their website. Upon installation, I realized it didn't like my V4L2 video camera and so I wrote a shell script called 'skype' and put it in /usr/local/bin/ The contents of the shell script were as follows: Code: #!/bin/bash LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so /usr/bin/skype When I call the command skype from the command line, it preloads the library, enabling all to see my bad hair days ;) However, when I run skype from the Run Command dialog(Alt+F2) in KDE, it loads skype from /usr/bin, ignoring my script. I verify this with the command Code: ps -aef | grep skype I'd prefer to be able to do this without changing the .desktop file, since I use /usr/local/bin for other testing stuff. (fixing the problem, not creating a workaround) I'm on a fairly fresh installation of 64-bit OpenSuSE 11.2 and have the necessary 32-bit packages installed. Any suggestions? (Distributions)
