Has anyone successfully installed and used Skype for video calls on their XO? Any help/instructions on using Skype with the XO would be much appreciated!

In case anyone stumbles upon this page, you should know that there's lots more info out there.

In short, I have gotten skype working. Read about it here: ... -olpc.html

Instructions can be found here:

I also had to:
Code: Select all
yum install libsigC++20

I use Twinkle for my VOIP, instead of SKYPE since Skype charges me money to call telephones and my VOIP does not charge me for calls until I get 5 hours a week. I did a Yum Install Twinkle to do it. Then, I added the basic sign on info.

How can you send someone skype contact information to someone else using skype 4? Skype 4 seems to be missing the "send contact" feature. Does anyone know how to do it using Skype version 4? Thanks.
