Skype 2 ( Beta ) On OpenSUSE

I got a mail, asking me how did I install skype 2 ( Beta), with Video support, on OpenSUSE 10.3.
I replied to him and then did a google search to find out any page detailing the procedure. Strange I could not find any.

Though installing the latest beta version of Skype is very trivial, but the fact is that no document exists to let new users know the procedure. Here we go.

  1. Go to the Skpye 2.0 beta for Linux Page.
  2. There are several packages listed for various distributions, Select the one for OpenSUSE 10+.
  3. Click on it to install -- thats it. Job well done. YAST2 will take care of the remaining things. You would just require to fill in your super user password and click the install button. YAST2 installs all the required dependencies ( if any not already installed). Just for information. Skype 2.0 lists Qt 4.2.1, D-Bus 1.0.0, and libasound2 1.0.12 as dependencies.
After the install, Skype was able to auto detect my Creative web cam and correctly configure it. Though like normal skype, I can still configure both video and audio.
I use KDE as desktop, hence, Skype is auto started on each login and I am auto logged in. As with normal skype, I get all the alerts about my contacts being online/ offline and I can start chat/call/video call with them. I was able to video chat with my wife who has skype on windows. No issues of operating system compatibility. Best thing about skype is that unlike Kopete, I can set the incoming image to Full Screen and get a more realistic feel of the person I am talking to.

I think that video chatting with a windows user was one of the major restrictive factor in Linux, which Skype 2.0 beta video has successfully eliminated. Wish that Skype Video for Linux gets a stable release soon, even better, Skype for Linux becomes open source !!!
