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
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
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--
Well, I've got a new computer. It's a Dell Laptop Inspiron 1521. It's great, but now I'm trying to put linux on it. I'm using debian linux, and my goal is to run 'lenny', or what they also call 'testing'. I still have dial-up at home, but the computer has a wireless card, so...

LinuxQuestions website

This is my first blog entry.
Just wanted to congratulate for the amazing work you've been doing with this website.
Many many times, this is the place I found answers to my questions.
I also have another blog on my own website where I usually post concerns and mostly findings. But... that website will never reach the level of professionalism you can find here on http:/

Thank you!

My first blog!

Posted 08-01-2008 at 11:14 AM by archeryguru2000

Hello everybody. I've never posted a blog entry before... not even sure what blogs are really for. I must admit, I've never even read a blog before. However, I've heard enough hype on TV about them to believe that they are used (kinda) like a diary. I've never had a diary before, most guys probably have not. 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...
