  1. The alias trick does not seem to work when launching skype from gnome. It works if I start skype from a terminal.

    Maybe you should patch it to install a shell wrapper and make skype.desktop point to wrapper?

      1. I have booted multiple times and it does not fix the issue. As I said, from the terminal I can see the alias and it works so the profile was sourced.

        1. That’s weird. I will change the package so it’s using the wrapper. You will receive it today or tomorrow through updates. Thanks for reporting.

  2. Hi,
    thanks for pointing that out.

    Launching skype with pulseaudio setting that you suggested works, at least I can make test calls but notifications are still not working…anyway it’s better than nothing.

    I noticed that you already updated the package providing an alias, it doesn’t work for me probably because I’m using zsh.

    Anyway, thanks a lot.

  3. Hi,
    I’m testing skype package on Fedora 20 Alpha and have an issue with sound, actually there’s no sound at all…notifications, test call, nothing is making any sound.

    I’ve checked the mixer and it notices skype using the sound subsystem but I can’t do anything to get it working. I also tried Skype’s rpm from skype.com with same results…

    Do you have any clue about what could be the issue?

    Thanks a lot.

    1. Hello,

      in Fedora 20 Alpha you need an additional setting. Can you launch skype with the following command line?

      PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=30 skype

      I will add a profile script in /etc/profile.d/ that sets the variable only for Fedora 20+.


  4. Would be nice if you could also link to the repositories from the blog post. It’s not clear where to get the packages when reading the post on Planet Fedora.
