Can some one help me to bridge between empathy and skype? I followed every post from here and google. But it's not working. There is no option for skype in gnome-account.
I have installed pidgin-skype and telepathy-haze. Also I am using skype 4.2. I revert back from 4.3 to 4.2. Linux skype is a crap. I want to use skype using other messenger UI. I also tried wine but no luck.
Hi, for about two years I haven't had the need to install a messenger - on my iPhone or Mac beside the Linux machines the job was completly done by iMessage.Now there's a person I'd like to stay in touch with, who is using skype and nothing else. I read the threads about skype here (... I don't really like skype ...) and installed it including i386.
Skype has just updated its iOS app, making it much easier to merge Skype accounts with your Microsoft account.
Microsoft recently decided to phase out Windows Live Messenger in favor of Skype, finally putting the $8.5 billion acquisition to good use, which allows users to Skype with Messenger, Hotmail, and Outlook.com contacts.
i know whats the problem why we cannot connect to skype.your skype needs to be updated into skype 6.20 and this file is in this website is in http://www.skype.com/en/download-skype/ it works for me becauce 6.11 is an old Skype version. All Skype versions older than 6.14 are now being retired and this means that you no longer can use your 6.11 version. The currently latest Skype version is 6.20.
I used the instructions from http://tweak2.com/20-essential-thing...ion-of-fedora/ to install skype without realizing that I could simply download skype from software center. so I wrote the command su -c 'yum remove skype' which removed skype from my linux but then when I go to software after restart, it woud NOT let me install skype.
