using Skype

Posted 10-19-2011 at 06:09 AM by neonsignal

To installl skype on Debian, the following repository can be added to /etc/apt/sources.list:
Code:
dep http://download.skype.com/linux/repos/debian/ stable non-free
It is then installed:
Code:
apt-get install skype
In order to get the camera to work, I found I had to force the use of the v4l1compat library when invoking skype, ie:
Code:
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype
