Skype via Empathy

This thread describes how to do skype chatting in empathy.

The steps to follow – for ubuntu users at least – are:

  1. Install skype: see link.
  2. Install pidgin-skype: sudo apt-get install pidgin-skype
  3. Start skype.
  4. Go to empathy’s account manager and add a bigbrownchunx-skype-dbus account for your skype identity.
