In Windows, I can join a Skype Public chat by pasting a Skype chat link into a web browser's address bar (or clicking a link which contains that URI), but it doesn't work in my Ubuntu 10.04 using Skype 126.96.36.199.
The URI is generated by Skype from within a group chat via the command
Error messages from the following browsers are:
# Firefox ... the protocol (skype) isn't associated with any program
# chromium-browser ... just treats it as s google search argument
# konqueror ... Protocol not supported: skype
How can I get these
skype:?chat&blob=... links to work?
Edit: as I've mentioned in response to Tom Brossman's good comment, the main issue has now become: which application should be used for handling the
skype protocol... If it is Skype itself, what is the syntax? ... because
skype "%s" does not process the protocol.
If someone has actually had success with the perl module
skype-action-handler with a recent version of Linux Skype , it would be good to know.
