Unhappy Video Meetings


Greetings Members. I need to attend video meetings hosted by "Gotomeeting.com" which does not support Linux. The meeting has just started and the only way I can attend is via Skype, but that too is not supported by Linux Mint. I know that I haven't cut myself off from the world but it feels like it sometimes. Please assist!

Skype support for linux is not brilliant but it does exist. If you have trouble getting the package from Ubuntu you can download it directly from the Skype website.

Sorry, I've used Skype for years on Linux...downloaded the package directly from their website, and installed it with no problems at all. Gotomeeting is a proprietary system (like Skype), but UNlike Skype, it's their CHOICE to not support Linux.

Also, Google Hangouts work just fine as well for video/audio calling.

I'm using Skype on Current Arch right now.

Version 4.3.0.37 if that helps.

And Mint has this: http://community.linuxmint.com/software/view/skype
