i guess i muffed this one?
1. i removed the skype.fc10
2. i extracted the tarball to /usr/share/skype (note that i moved
skype-22.214.171.124/* to /usr/share/skype/..)
3. i coped the skype script to /usr/bin and updated it to be, ...
# Configure this with paths that suit you. The default should work if
you run ./skype from the current directory.
# LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/share/skype/Qt4.4:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH ./skype.bin
cd /usr/share/skype; LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/share/skype:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
4. i also copied /usr/share/skype/skype.bin to /usr/bin/.
But! after launch, i put in my passwd and it comes back with, 'unable to
access skype data files'.
does my error jump out at you?
