I need to trust my instincts more often... >_>
Course... I'm still questioning exactly what I did... but the program is running
, and that's what's important, right?
Also, I keep pausing and thinking that that was entirely too easy to accomplish. >_<
Anyway: For fellow Sabayon 7 KDE users:
-download the dynamic file (skype-188.8.131.52.tar.bz2).
-Double click the file to open in ARK.
-Extract contents to preferred temporary location.
-The README will recommend the following:
We recommend copying the skype binary to /usr/bin and installing sounds/, lang/ and avatars/ into the /usr/share/skype directory.
-Open preferred Terminal & login as su.
-cd to /usr/share & mkdir /usr/share/skype.
-cd to directory where you extracted files/directories
-mv .../avatars, /icons, /sounds, /lang -t /usr/share/skype (that's not an actual code excerpt, move them separately, or use &&)
-mv the binary file -t /usr/bin (I also moved the .conf file here, but if there's a directory for
.conf files, please let me know.)
-do... something with the License and README files >_>
-and I left the skype.desktop file alone... I don't think I've ever dealt with those in the past... I'll be researching that later - input always loved, of course.
-I think that's it for what I did... then I typed "skype" (sans quotes, of course) from the Terminal and it launched the program, pretty as you please.
I'm a happy girl, now! o-0
