Hi,

I have debian stable squeeze. it has into repositories: skype and not Skype4py!.

How to call someone with command line? It has only command line login.

Code:
$ skype  -h
Skype 2.2.0.35

Usage: skype [options]
Options:
  --dbpath=<path>       Specify an alternative path to store Skype data files.
                        Default: ~/.Skype
  --resources=<path>    Specify a path where Skype can find its resource files.
                        Default: /usr/share/skype
  --disable-api         Disable Skype Public API.
  --pipelogin           Command line login. "echo username password | skype --pipelogin"
  --version             Display version information and exit.
thanks

Never used it, but Clisk looks interesting:

It does nothing

but good thing it does not say anything that --callto is unknown argument

but still it does not call with --callto


but but --callto: with this ":" it says unkonwn command


I tried this xdg-open callto:+1234567890 but not working either



I have api:
"Direct access to the Skype API, which allows API testing and many command-based Skype operations such as profile and mood text updates."

$ skype --help
Skype 2.2.0.35

Usage: skype [options]
Options:
--dbpath=<path> Specify an alternative path to store Skype data files.
Default: ~/.Skype
--resources=<path> Specify a path where Skype can find its resource files.
Default: /usr/share/skype
--disable-api Disable Skype Public API.
--pipelogin Command line login. "echo username password | skype --pipelogin"
--version Display version information and exit.

Hi,

If I search there are not so much options in the repos of stable debian.

Would you know if I can call directly frmo BASH ?

Code:
ebian:~$ apt-cache search skype
earcandy - Sound level manager for PulseAudio
skytools - Database management tools from Skype to PostgreSQL
skype - Skype
