Tumbleweed/Skype

Not sure this is worthy of a blog post, but here goes, maybe it’ll help someone, you never know.

Replaced my openSUSE 12.3 repos with Tumbleweed repos, rolling release, hopefully never install again! Tumbleweed how to.

Skype did not work out the box. Ref: SDB:Skype – openSUSE

I quote;

“For 64-bit installation of openSUSE 12.2 (implicates 12.3)
You will need the corresponding *-32bit RPM packages, since skype is only offered in 32-bit. The Skype rpm from skype.com depends on these so it will install them automatically. However, on most openSUSE systems pulseaudio is used and this is not a hard dependency so you will need to install this to get sound.”

Code:

su -c 'zypper install libpulse0-32bit alsa-plugins-pulse-32bit'
