Anybody here have any experience with this?

I have skype on Opensuse 11.4 with KDE 4.6

I have all desktop effects disabled in KDE.

Skype works pretty well for me but I can't seem to get screen sharing to work.

Whenever I select share screen (whether full or region) everything appears to be working from my end and it appears as if my screen is being shared but the user at the other end (always using windows skype) is unable to view my share.

On their end my video link simply disappears and no share screen appears.

I can dual boot on this computer into windows and when I do this and load skype the share screen function works perfectly.

What would the problem be with screen share in linux?
