libtiff.so.4 => not found how to install this libraries ..?
i'm using slackware64 -Current with Multilib
As root cd first to /usr/lib and run the code
Code:
ln -s libtiff.so.3 libtiff.so.4
and the run it again in /usr/lib64 as you are running Slackware64.

Sparkeyjames's solution works great! Pretty simple for me too
I'd believe the multilibs should not be needed.
Thanks James!

That link seems to be broken.

The logs files are binary files that contains no very useful info.
http://developer.skype.com/SkypeGarage/LogFile

A Log file is a file that contains all information about a single session of Skype. It helps us greatly in debugging problems in Skype and enables us to fix problems that you may encounter inside Skype.
But if you want you may remove the "rm" line from /usr/bin/skype.
Quote:
Linux

Close Skype
Create directory “Logs” under your Skype data directory (~/.Skype/)
Restart Skype
Log file (skype_yyyy-mm-dd-hhmmss) will be created in ~/.Skype/Logs
To turn off logging again, delete the “Logs” directory
The history is saved on remote server.

Fantastic! I'll leave it as it is then and have the default log removal intact

Thanks @zerouno

Perhaps that might be the symlink issue that is covered earlier in this thread?
