skype button via launcher

I use Ubuntu 10.04 lts and would like to create a launcher on the desktop that works like the Skype button ( so that when I click on it it calls/chat with contact.

Is this possible please.

Can anyone suggest the command line input i would need to use for this in the launcher ? I know that its skype-wrapper to run Skype itself .... would i need to add to this command ?

I'm confused. This 'button' I a website feature. As you can read, on the website you linked, you type 'your' own skype name there, it generates a HTML code, and you copy and paste that code to your own website. So then anyone that visites your website can easily send you a message, call or whatever.

I do not understand what is the purpose of creating a launcher on your desktop with 'your friends' skype name. You already have it in skype application.

This button is for other people to contact you and not the other way.
