Quick Tip – Legacy Skype on Debian Squeeze

Feb 28 2013 Published by under howto, linux

The trick to making the webcam work:

 LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l1compat.so /usr/bin/skype

This assumes of course you have the various ia32- and lib32- packages installed.

This is with a skype 2.2.0.35 deb I made a couple of computer builds ago, so YMMV.
