Skype and Fedora 20
Thanks to Negativo17’s blog I got skype running. Here’s the step by step:
Run all commands as root or vias sudo
Add the the negativo17 repo of skype
wget http://negativo17.org/repos/fedora-skype.repo -O \ /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-skype.repo
Install skype normally via yum
yum install skype
NB: It considers the sound bug in Fedora 20:
On Fedora 20+, the real Skype binary is used through a wrapper that sets PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=30 before running the real binary. As of Skype 184.108.40.206 this is required for proper operation.
NB: Always consider the trust implications of 3rd-party repo providers.
