I've been trying to get group video chat working on skype on ubuntu 15.10. The problem is, it is not supported in skype 4.3 (current linux release).
I have been trying to run newer versions of skype with wine. With v6.0 and up, I got runtime error 217, and I was unable to fix this.
I then tried using skype 5.0, which did launch using wine, but gave me the "unable to connect" message when I was sure I used the correct login credentials. Looks to me like skype can't access the Internet.
I was wondering if there was a fix for this problem that might allow internet access to skype 5.0 in wine.
