Linux Skype alternative similar to Windows Skype?
QuteCom, previously known as WengoPhone: http://www.qutecom.org/
[EDIT]: It has its own network and user database. I don't think
it is compatible with Skype if that is your point.
Ubuntu, Bluetooth headset and Skype
Well Ubuntu 9.04 comes with Pulseaudio and my Plantronics Voyager
520 works fine with Skype by just connecting it over the
Bluetooth Icon in the Gnome taskbar (Bluetooth Icon Right click
-> Set up new device... then Pair with Headset, PIN is usually
0000 and then set trust mode in the preferences). After choosing
headset as the sound device in the Skype options the test call
was working without problems.
In 8.10 it didn't work right away but by I could make the headset
available in Skype by following this tutorial.
regex edit in skype?
The regexp feature does not work on Windows. It works on the
Linux and Mac version though. It's a pretty neat feature, you can
also hold Control-click (Mac) and select Edit
from the context menu on a message to edit it.
Where does Skype save my contact's avatars in Linux?
This Skype forum thread is about avatars: http://forum.skype.com/index.php?showtopic=99471.
- First, they discuss some commands that allow you saving
avatars from Skype cache with it public interface through it
doesn't apparently work on Linux. I don't know if they fixed that
interface already, and that's not what your question is about.
- Second, one Skype dev said that all images are stored in JPEG
format and provide a header in hex (
hexdump of all Skype files with the
for i in *; do echo $i;
hd $i | grep 'ff d8 ff e0'; done command revealed many
occurences of this header in .Skype/userNNN.dbb files where NNN
is some number. This files have some absolutely undocumented,
proprietary format and are probably keeping all cached
information about users; you can extract avatars themselves by
scanning for header and then copying everything until end of file
to other file. All image viewers will skip any data after the
image itself (a technology RARJPG is based on), and if you want
to remove junk out of them you can "modify" it without modifying
e.g. with imagemagick and command
file_clean.jpg. ImageMagick behaves as described viewer:
it reads image, skips anything that follow it and then writes
only image itself.
Linux Skype issue. How to work with Pulseaudio in Ubuntu Karmic and/or Hardy?
In my sound preferences, I have 'PulseAudio server(local)' for
Mic, Speakers, Ringing. And it works. I don't think I had to
configure anything manually. Try reinstalling skype maybe.
Linux: Install Skype 4.0 but keep 2.2?
Try virtualbox. Install the new version in a VM.

How to get better Skype notifications in Ubuntu?
xfce4-notifyd has an option to set its theme,
transparency, and time before it disappears.
I personally had to uninstall the previous notify daemon to set
the new one as default...
If you're using notify osd (gnome-notify), GUI tools to
customise it can be found here.
Showing Skype's Main Window in Ubuntu
You should have a system tray in Ubuntu too. Anyway try to
trayer (a stand-alone system tray), just for
a debugging purpose.
