skype 2.1.0.81.69.1mib2010.0

Post by hakova »

Hi all,

I have been using this version of skype with Mandriva 2010.0 for about 3-4 months now. Recently I noticed that I cannot get picture/video from my webcam (Logitech Quick Messenger) with this version of skype. I tested my webcam again with cheese and it works. There is also no problem with the windows version of the skype. Any pointers will be greatly appreciated.

I wonder if this may be because of one of the recent kernel upgrades. Currently I am using 2.6.31.13-server-1mnb.

Regards,

Hakan

and you can also modify the Mandriva Menu entry

Open a root konsole and:

Code: Select all

gedit /usr/share/applications/skype.desktop
modify this, the fouth text line:

Code: Select all

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Skype
Comment=Skype Internet Telephony
Exec=skype
Icon=skype.png
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Encoding=UTF-8
Categories=Network;X-MandrivaLinux-Internet-InstantMessaging;
X-Desktop-File-Install-Version=0.15
into exactly:

Code: Select all

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Skype
Comment=Skype Internet Telephony
Exec=LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype
Icon=skype.png
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Encoding=UTF-8
Categories=Network;X-MandrivaLinux-Internet-InstantMessaging;
X-Desktop-File-Install-Version=0.15
and save it!


bye,
NicCo

Thanks NicCo. I also put the same command (with v4l preloaded) into the autostart section of KDE control center, if anybody is interested in autostarting skype with session start as I do.
