004-skypeforlinux-64.11.16.xzm

Does not work for me. And no output or error message under version 4.0:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~# sudo /usr/bin/skypeforlinux
root@porteus:~# 
Any idea would be appreciated.

Thnaks.

Hi Francois,
Download Skype for Linux:
https://www.skype.com/fr/get-skype/down ... r-desktop/
And subsequently:
rpm2xzm
That works for me.

@Kulle
I downloaded it as DEB format from same site (https://www.skype.com/ja/thank-you-skype/),
and converted the DEB to XZM.

004-skypeforlinux-8.65.0.78-x86_64-1.xzm
http://www.mediafire.com/file/dja4ibagk ... 6_64-1.xzm

Thanks.

@neko.
Thanks for the download, but this one seems corrupted.

@kulle:
Thanks I have made a module from the .deb package. However, it will not start. There might be too much modules in my /porteus/modules folder. Maybe some compatibility issue.

Looking for the command line option for skype, I did not found it. Do you know it?

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~# skypeforlinux
root@porteus:~# skype
bash: skype: command not found
root@porteus:~# 
I will test in always fresh mode and come back.

Thanks.

@neko:

I was looking for skypeforlinux for porteus 4.0. You helped me nailing down the problem. I was running it under root. A very bad habit. :oops:
Running zoom from root mode works and that is mainly what I do.
Thanks so much.
