Adding Skype to Pidgin

Thursday, July 13th, 2017

I’m running Fedora Linux using KDE and like using the IM client Pidgin to handle gmail/yahoo im services. But I just recently added Skype which is nice… I did get an error message from Pidgin at first, “Failed getting PIE value” which was due to the skype client plugin being too old in my yum installation. So, I installed by source as follows and everything worked great!

git clone git://github.com/EionRobb/skype4pidgin.git
cd skype4pidgin/skypeweb
make
sudo make install
