    Default Skype scrip t

    Does anyone know where i can place this script

    #!/bin/bash LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib64/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype
    and have it loaded every boot? Right now i need to kick this script line off everytime after booting in to the system to get skype working.

    Thanks.

    skype 
    
    exit 0
    
    # End Of Script
    Place the script in ~/.kde4/Autostart if you use KDE and in my example I called it sky. Then open a terminal session and run this command to make it executable:

    Code:
    chmod +x ~/.kde4/Autostar/sky
    Restart your computer and see if it works.

    Don't. Just start skype with that line.

    You can create a shortcut, though.

    I misunderstood your question. I thought you wanted to do that preload
    thing overall for all the desktop, so that skype would work when clicking
    on it. That is a no.

    What you need is a shortcut for the script you are already using, or
    autostart it.
