    2. Thank you SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH for this tutorial. It worked flawlessly on a fresh installation of RHEL 6.5 desktop x86_64. It was so frustrating trying to install Skype on this, SL, or CentOS with all the errors about missing dependencies.

      Thank you again for this guide, I truly appreciate it.

      • Hi LinuxFedora18,

        Did you installed all dependencies on step 1.2? alsa-lib is first package.

        
        yum install alsa-lib.i686 fontconfig.i686 freetype.i686 \
        glib2.i686 libSM.i686 libXScrnSaver.i686 libXi.i686 \
        libXrandr.i686 libXrender.i686 libXv.i686 libstdc++.i686 \
        pulseaudio-libs.i686 qt.i686 qt-x11.i686 zlib.i686

    11. Thank you so much! Every tip I’ve take from this web site worked! (Fedora 20)

    12. i used these instructions on fedora 20 , plus the pulseaudio latency fix in skype.desktop to get sound working.

      it all works except i noticed that all the notification events in skype were unbound from their wav files. when i hit the reset to default button for each wav file it wont play. and if i point skype to them one by one i can get them to play.

      any ideas, i don’t think it is permissions. my guess is skype ahsnt got all its resource directories right.

    13. found it. had one dash instead of two dashes in usr/bin/skype ( –resources ) and some incorrectly encoded double appostrophes. serves me for copy pasting.
