(Seamless virtualization) - could check this ht http://code.google.com/p/rtgui/ - must set this up along with webserver authentication Sniper Elite-walkthrough
I love Fedora. So obviously I love Linux :D, so its only natural that I would not want to use ***doze for just Skype-right?
Here starts a mix and match of sound servers that were messing up one or the other app-pulse audio was not helping much. If I set everything to OSS, audacious and skype were working but not vlc, and any combination had such problems.
Getting Skype 2 beta alone to work was a significant task-all with skype when run on the CLI telling me the follosing message:
Cannot open shared library /usr/lib/alsa-lib/libasound_module_ctl_pulse.so
And searching around I found that this so was in alsa-plugins-pulseaudio, which adding to the confusion was already installed on my machine...
The solution turned out to be to surprise-surprise-- uninstall alsa-plugins-pulseaudio :)
System->Preferences->Hardware->Sound Vlc->Settings->Preferences->Audio->OutPut Modules->Advanced options enabled Audacious Preferences Skype Preferences Now that done, I removed all traces of pulse on my FC8 box and added a few plugins for audacious and alsa-the following is the list of related packages I have at the moment:
After a lot of digging around, I hit on the brilliant idea of running skype from command line so that U can atleast get a look at the error messages-if there are any. Voila; it turned out that there was just one - could not open libasound_module_ctl_pulse.so
More digging to find out the package that it was present in gave me alsa-plugins-pulseaudio as the package that contains the file. Cool I thought-I downloaded it from rpmfind and tried to install it when it said that it is already installed :D OK Back to square 1. More digging and I found the solution-uninstall the very same package. Yes it did it. Just do a yum remove alsa-plugins-pulseaudio and you should get skype 2 working cool with excellent audio and the video-ok I have not tested that. My friend whos webcam I was trying to see was having a bad connection and probably a bad cam. So cant really comment on that.
But in addition to removing alsa-plugins-pulseaudio, I installed alsa-plugins-oss and made my system->preferences->hardware->sound point to OSS devices. If you have trouble with just the above, then you could try doing this step in addition....good luck :)
