I use these lines in a file .nanorc in my home directory - eg:
set autoindent
set boldtext
set brackets ""')>]}"

Skype problem

Posted 04-20-2011 at 03:07 PM by myklmar (Linux Gimux)

It happened again!
Updated Skype, video wouldn't work and it made my voice sound like donald duck!

Have discovered that with some installations Skype video won't work.
So....Try adding this as the properties of a shortcut:

(System >Preferences >Keyboard Shortcuts)

env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/ skype

I've saved mine as Ctrl + Alt + S

No more problems..
