Hi,Thanks for this info. I'm totally new to the linux world. After my XP packed up, I just decided to give it a whirl, but I need Skype to talk to my parents and others who are unliklely to use anything else.So, I'm on Kubuntu 9.10 which I really, really like, but only just beginning to work out how to use.The LD_PRELOAD from the command line worked nicely (Quickcam connect).But , if you have time could you possibly indicate (for an absolute beginner) what it is I'd need to edit so I don't have to use the command line every time to open Skype?Many thanksMatt
What I did was rename the skype binary, and then replace create a script with the old name.For example,sudo mv /usr/bin/skype /usr/bin/skype.realcat > /usr/bin/skype <<EOF#!/bin/bashLD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv41/vl1compat.so skypeEOFsudo chmod +x /usr/bin/skype
Thanks for the tip mate, worked like a charm!
Nice joke PWESTBRO !It is neverending loop, if your script is calling himself.The right comandis this:#!/bin/bashLD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so /usr/bin/skype.realBye !
