It's not Skype's fault. I have installed Skype on a number of different machines, including 64-bits and it always run out of the box. Latest was on Debian Squeeze / KDE4 which worked without any tweaking including video.

Skype and Ubuntu

Witch package did you use? I have tried the latest stable (?)
skype-ubuntu-intrepid_2.1.0.81-1_i386.deb on
Ubuntu 10.4. The same problem was with 9.10 and 8.4.

Now Skype starts and audio is OK thus microphone is Pulse-Audio server (local) and I can not select the webcam.

Skype recognizes the Labtec webcam (046d:08a2) (/dev/video0)
but does not take a shot. The test button in the small black screen disappears and the green LED on the cam flashes once. Test screen remains black and when I click on it, I get a full screen yellowish background. ESC turns back to normal view.

I have the application Cheece and it works. I think some tiny gadget is missing or should be adjusted in the Skype configuration. Any hints what?


MB ASUS M3A78-EMH HDMI
Graphics ASUS EN8500GT SILENT driver NVIDIA 195.36.15

Thanks in advance

Well I would like Adobe Photoshop & Paint. That works with the Linux in very good manner. I like to work also with a MS office but not in that manner and familiar as I am familiar with the Photoshop. Linux Photoshop run in such a manner that we can always get the work better.

This is a response to post no. 45
Kind of a harsh judgement there. Easy to say "if you can't figure it out, stop b------g about it and go back to Windows", which is essentially what you said. Not what this thread is about. Plus, that "RTFM" type of response found elsewhere on the web is why I so value the lack here.

Didn't notice the date. Stopped at that one but it did need a response, even if 7 years late. This has been the friendliest and most tolerant site for idiots such as me, for example, and I really do appreciate it. Hope it goes on forever!

Quicken, Magic Jack, HP printing/scanning

I would like to see Quicken products and Magic Jack ported. I use Quicken Deluxe to track finances almost on a daily basis and use Magic Jack to make all of my long distance phone calls. If I could use them with Linux, I probably wouldn't use Windows at all.
If I could get HP Essentials to work, it would consolidate all of my printing and scanning in one program.

Quicken Deluxe 2008 and 2009 work almost flawlessly with later versions of Ubuntu using later versions Wine. There are just a few, very minor quirks. I could not find open source equivalents that would print checks, therefore I went the Quicken in Wine route. It never crashes.

Hi! everyone on linuxqestions.org. I am stating my experience of adobe reader9. I have downloaded adobe 9.x on my pc running open suse 10.2. After starting adobe reader one gets its usual window. However when trying to open a file you get a window which occupies full vertical section of the screen and you cannot reduce its size no matter what you do. Because of this if the file you want to open is some where in the bottom of the window you are not able to open it. Similarly if you get the file opened and try to print it you get another window for printer parameters etc and this window also occupies all the vertical portion of the screen, so you cannot print the document as the ok button lies in the bottom portion of the screen you cannot see the ok button. I have visited adobe site, but nowhere I could find a remedy.
Regards to all
