TOPIC: Skype ?

Skype ? 3 years 3 weeks ago #1042

I have just installed TOOROX KDE in a couple of my computers and it looks really good.
I like very much what I see and just have a few things to figure out.
I have not figured out how to make Skype install.

I am new to TOOROX but have been "into" Linux for quite a while.
I am no GURU but I get along ok mostly. I have usually been running Slackware but new to this.
I tried to use both Portato and emerge but was unable as there seems to be something to do that I have not figured out how to do.

Maybe someone will kind and send me some hints.

Thank you for your consideration.

# emerge -av skype

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Would you like to merge these packages? [Yes/No]

looks like that? if yes, type yes and hope it works after compiling ;)

im not sure but i think you schould run a system-upgrade before: eix-sync && emerge -avuND world
could take some hours/days .... :)

hello leobingw

i have installed the toorox 2/2011 and try to install skype.

there was a little few problems... (copy and paste :D )

add in the make.conf this line:
ACCEPT_LICENSE="* -@EULA"

then you must the package unmask...

in the /etc/portage/ is no license-file. create one for use with skype :)
echo net-im/skype skype-eula >>/etc/portage/package.license

then unmask in package.umask (attension, the package.umask is a directory)
echo "net-im/skype" >> /etc/portage/package.unmask/skype

and finally use the right useflags (found with google)
echo "net-im/skype -arts esd static" >> /etc/portage/package.use

now you can install skype with
emerge -av net-im/skype

and you should become a installed sykpe beta in the version 2.2.0.25.
it is to find in the menu under internet-tools :)

greetings and happy easter
