Skype Pidgin Plugin

Posted 08-01-2008 at 12:57 PM by Vermind

As some might know,
there is a plugin to use a running Skype instance through Pidgin. Unfortunately using Skype through Pidgin on my Ubuntu 8.04 causes Pidgin to crash sometimes, with a
Code:
pidgin: ../../src/xcb_lock.c:77: _XGetXCBBuffer: Assertion `((int) ((xcb_req) - (dpy->request)) >= 0)' failed.
Bug entry here.
I read that this could be worked around with the
Code:
LIBXCB_ALLOW_SLOPPY_LOCK=1
environment variable, but the same issue still occurred even with it.

This post was written previously. I include it here so that maybe other people can benefit from this long story of how I got my laptop to finally work, and because I like posting to blogs.

--New Computer--

LinuxQuestions website

Posted 08-01-2008 at 11:28 AM by dantux

This is my first blog entry.
Just wanted to congratulate LinuxQuestions.org for the amazing work you've been doing with this website.
Many many times, this is the place I found answers to my questions.

Thank you!

Growing up, I seem to remeber that girls generally liked the idea of having (and keeping) a journal of their daily/periodic "encounters". Anyway, I feel I'm ready to give it...
