Skype and KDE Adressbook


Hello everyone,
I'd like to know if there is a possibility to associate the telefone number of the KDE adressbook with skype, so when I click on the number skype calls it.

I would not think so as the address book of skype is hosted remotely,
and skype is closed source

If you want to do that you may need an open source alternative to skype

PLease let us know if you make this work with any, maybe see

No, I don't ment the skype adressbook, I ment the KDE-Adressbook.
So when Iclick on a telefone number in KDE there should be a function like in Kmail to open with firefox ( /home/usrname/firefox/firefox %u ).
This should be something like /usr/bin/skype %n or something else.

Thanx

I understood what you meant
kde click -> user select -> skype user same -> skype call

I stand by the same answer, unless skype has a command line argument for user selection. I would not think so

Away from pc
what yours saying ?
skype --help

skype 1.2.0.21_API
command line such as
skype echo123
skype --help
skype -h
no luck

Yes I have the phonebook as well. Did not know it was there... Cool.
I believe the master copy is held by skype, but does not matter here.
