    Default Skype with video on OpenSUSE 11.1 x86_64


    So i finally got Skype working on my OpenSUSE 11.1 64-bits install on my
    laptop (smolts -> 'Show Box' (http://tinyurl.com/87etmo)).

    Here is a quick run-through how i got it to work.

    *First get Skype 2.0.0.72 here:*
    http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-linux-ubuntu-amd64 left-click and save
    ...or...

    Code:
    --------------------
    wget http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-linux-ubuntu-amd64
    --------------------

    INSTALL THE DEPENDENCIES:
    Code:
    --------------------
    sudo zypper install libqt4-32bit libqt4-x11-32bit
    --------------------

    INSTALL ALIEN:
    Code:
    --------------------
    sudo zypper install alien
    --------------------

    CONVERT THE .DEB FILE INTO .RPM:
    Code:
    --------------------
    alien -r -c skype_ubuntu-2.0.0.72-1_amd64.deb
    --------------------

    INSTALL THE NEW CONVERTED .RPM PACKAGE OF SKYPE:
    Code:
    --------------------
    sudo rpm -ivh skype-2.0.0.72-2.x86_64.rpm
    --------------------

    Start Skype: Run it from the menu -> -Applications > Internet > More
    Programs > Skype-

    Code:
    --------------------
    skype
    --------------------

    *_Not_working:_*
    Putting the webcam picture window on "Fullscreen" cause Skype to crash
    on my machine.

    On-going investigation on what's not working ...

    Congratulations!

    Just curious, are you able to see yourself in the preview window at the
    same time? This is what I can't get working in Skype with any version
    of SUSE I've tried...

    Yes, the preview pictures are shown in the option screen and in the
    video window during a call (as a picture-in-picture thing).

    Awesome. I'm definitely going to try your method.

    Thanks.
