Updated Skype Pidgin plugin

The Skype Pidgin plugin has been updated, it now provides a working copy of the skypeweb plugin. This means you can have your Skype account in Pidgin without having the full Skype client running on your system.

Just disable the D-Bus plugin and enable the HTTP client, providing your Skype credentials.

    1. You’re right, that’s a packaging error. Did not spot it as I also have normal Skype always installed. Will update in a couple of hours. Thanks for reporting!

      1. No, thank you for being so responsive! I rely on a couple of your repos and appreciate you doing all of this. Not that its anyway equivalent to your help, but I sent over a few bones via paypal as appreciation.
