Hi everybody,

I've just installed Skype and got an account. So basically it seems to work. My problem at this time is the test call: I hear the automatic voice, my microphone is on and loud (I can hear it in the speakers if I blow to it or scratch), but I can't hear my message they send automatically back. Only the automatic voice.
Has anybody a idea what's wrong?

I tried it with EeePc 900 and Ripple_63, a Derivative of Puppy 4.1.1

Rolf

Edit: I just tried it also with Puppy 4.1.1 with exactly the same problem.

I'm having the same issue as the above poster.

Skype installed fine. My video works fine. when calling people, their video turns up way scratchy unviewable and the program crashes.

I also can't get the mircophone to work at all.

The computer:
Dell 2400
1.6 ghz processor (or maybe 2.6)
256MB ram
80GB hard drive

The webcam: microsoft VX 1000

Thanks in advance!

Just FYI guys, the newest Skype is always available and it runs pretty well by just as a static download which is found here: http://www.skype.com/download/skype/linux/choose/

Not that it isn't nice as a .pet though. Just extract anywhere and run the "skype" icon.

That's actually what I did and I'm still having the issues above.

This question was answered in this thread by user Peppyy. It is the message that gives instructions for properly configuring alsamixer. It may be found at this url: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=27198&start=15

I followed these instructions in Puppy 4.1.2 on my eeepc 701 and it worked like a charm.

I followed those without luck. Strange. the microphone is on the USB camera though. Perhaps that could be a factor?

Hi, I've read this complete thread before I started posting here. Wink

At last I'm a step further:
Even microphone was working (in my opinion), there was no 'mic boost' in alsa mixer. I found a pet from tempestuous here: eee-snd-hda-intel-patched-k2.6.25.16.pet http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=34159&sid=0b5536d4919e2a0ab07a25787a018b07
With internal mic it doesn't work but with a headset and all controls to max (I hear myself even breathing but now the background noise is very loud) I can hear my resended message low and dull.
For now I think it's a problem of the Eee900 series.

Rolf

I had installed the eee-snd-hda-intel-patched-k2.6.25.16.pet package on my eeepc 701 4g when I installed the operating system. That is probably why the directions worked for me as described in the post. In watching the eeeuser forum I have observed some issue specific differences between the 701 and 900 series models being posted so maybe that is the culprit here.

I got it Very Happy

For Eee 900 there are 3 pet's from tempestuous necessary:

eee-snd-hda-intel-patched-k2.6.25.16.pet
acpid-Eee-7x-900.pet
eee-asus_acpi-pciehp-k2.6.25.16.pet

Now Skype works fine for me also with internal microphone.
Have a nice xmas time

So, I gather that no one has any idea of how to adjust the fonts on skype? They do seem awfully small to me. T Hobbit asked about this earlier... but he received no reply.

the better way is to use dynamic skype
http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-linux-dynamic
and qt4 lib
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=33913&search_id=2087350767
i made an sfs with qt4 and sfs with skype dynamic and use them both
so i can adjust fonts with qt4config( inside of the qt4 pack) or use qt-gtkstyle( so skype will look like a gtk app)

with static skype you can set global font size( menu-desktop) higher

I can vouch that this Skype version will work--audio and video--with ASUS EEE 900.

(make sure users see earlier, very helpful post in this thread about setting up microphone capture)

Sub_title: webcam causes crash
 

I've also downloaded skype 2.0.0.72 and for a while it works. But whenever I try to do a video call, it shuts itself down. I can get skype to start to video me on my own. It can also show the person I am talking to on their own. But when I try to make it a full video call where they can see me and I can see them, the program crashes, i.e., shuts itself down.

Can't understand why.

By the way, I'm using Puppy 4.1 on a pentium 4 computer using 512 MB RAM and 1.7GHz. I've also got OpenOffice and KOffice running as sfs add-ons.

Recently I was having problems with my webcam on Skype. My webcam is a Logitech quickcam pro 4000. Anyway I have it working again.

The solution:
Skype 2.0.0.72
Puppy 4.1.2
Kernel k2.6.21.7 (k2.6.25.16 does not work on my computer)
Xvesa (Xorg did not work)
pwc driver (bundled with Puppy 4.1.2)

Hello,

md5sum does NOT match ( 3 download attempts on different machines with different OS ).

Later:
But the download from http://dotpups.de/kuapao_pet-sfs/misc/skype-2.0.0.72.pet
did work.
Problem solved....
