Thread: skype installation

    Default skype installation

    i assume you unlock gnome keyring by logging process in kde environment.

    if you install the rpm from skype repo
    then
    randomly and cyclically when you start pc then log in kde session skype says that it has been disconnected then it asks for you again the id and password of your profile and the gnome keyring pwd.

    if you install Skype with "one click" install from here https://software.opensuse.org/package/skype
    then
    definitively no more problem.

    in https://software.opensuse.org/package/skype
    click on "experimental packets"
    then
    in line "network:telephony ..." click on "one click install"

    skype update in network:telephony repo is published a few hours after skype repo update

    Default Re : skype installation

    My solution is not good. Randomly Skype is disconnected.

    So now I use kdocker, Chrome and web.skype.com. See https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...app-in-systray

    With this script to launch during kde session opening:

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    sleep 1m 45s
    /usr/bin/google-chrome-stable --profile-directory=Default --app=https://web.skype.com
    while [ true ]
    do
       sleep 5
       status=$(wmctrl -l | grep "Skype")
       if [ "$status" != "" ] ; then
          break
       fi
    done
    WID="$(wmctrl -lx | grep "Skype")"; kdocker -qtw "${WID%% *}" -i ~/.local/share/icons/hicolor/32x32/apps/chrome-pakpgkfddlphnhhpjailhknmgghmephf-Default.png
