skype on slackware


I am trying to install skype on slackware. So I've downloaded the compressed archive file, but when I run ./skype I get this error:
Code:
bash-3.00$ ./skype 
./skype: error while loading shared libraries: libdbus-1.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Where do I get a slackware package for libdbus? Or do I have it already?
I am using slackware current

that's what I have:
Code:
bash-3.00$ cd /var/log/packages/
bash-3.00$ ls | grep glibc
glibc-2.3.4-i486-1
glibc-i18n-2.3.4-noarch-1
glibc-solibs-2.3.4-i486-1
glibc-zoneinfo-2.3.4-noarch-1
bash-3.00$ ls | grep qt
gtk-qt-engine-0.5-i386-1
qt-3.3.4-i486-1
bash-3.00$
I don't want to compile anything... is there an official slackware package for that... or at least from linuxpackages?
I can't find it there...

You will need to do two things ...

Download and install the D-Bus library from here ...

http://www.freedesktop.org/Software/dbus

It's a fairly standard "./configure;make;make install" routine. Unfortunately, even with a successful install, you will need to do one additional step.

As root, do the following ...

ln -s /usr/local/lib/libdbus-1.so.1.0.0 /usr/lib/libdbus-1.so.0

Good luck. I'm using the new version of Skype at the moment, so it will work under Slack.

How did you manage to compile dbus? I tried it and it keeps failing with:

I must have compiled version 0.32 instead of the current one 0.33. My last post was on 4-24-2005 which is the day before 0.33 was released on the D-Bus site. Try version 0.32 and see if this fixes your problem.

Converting this RPM at the Skype For Linux Page...

"RPM for SuSE 9 and newer (5.7 MB) Version: 1.1.0.3. Release date: April 22, 2005"

using rpm2tgz and then installing the resultant tgz with KPackager under KDE worked without issue on my Compaq running 10.1 Stable with the standard 2.4.29 kernel.

Regards,

dkpw

It should be enough to create a symlink to skype in ~/.kde/Autostart assuming you're using KDE.
