Hi guys, thanks for the replies!

Both webcams are older Logitech Quickcams, however, one's a slightly newer model with a built in microphone. I'm also trying to find a way to use the mic built into the webcam as well (the mic in the cam works in Guvcview as well btw, but I can't get it to work in Skype when I select it in the options.)

At least I can use the cams now with that workaround...I'm running Puppy 5.28 005 btw!

I actually had known about that workaround before but forgot about it until now - would prefer if I didn't have to use it, but c'est la vie! Smile

have you checked with an actual call if your cam works? as i had a cam that wouldn't show in the 'skype options' but other people could see it

Yup, I have - nothing even comes up on the screen...you click the "Turn On Video" button on your end and nothing happens, not even a black box where the video should appear. You click the button and it literally seems to do nothing and the rest of the call (audio-wise) continues as normal. Screen-sharing like you mentioned works fine though...?

I followed CatDude's instructions to the letter after having downloaded the static from the link provided on the skype.com web-site - now running skype I get:

Code:

#skype: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.11' not found (required by skype)


I am on racy 5.3

hi growler, the latest skype doesn't work on racy or wary, here's an older version that should work http://www.mediafire.com/file/76f990w6acm95bj/skype_static-2.1.0.47.pet
