My Trillian won’t connect Skype on Windows 8 Customer Preview. I fixed it by just set the compatibility mode to Windows “earlier” versions.
- Quit out of Trillian
- Find the program files folder, on mine it was in C:\Program Files\Trillian
- Right click trillian.exe
- Select Properties
- Click the “Compatibility tab”
- Check compatibility mode box and select the version of Windows you prefer. I chose Windows 7.
- Next time you run Trillian, Skype should connect and stay connected
Taken from http://linuxinternetworks.com/applications/how-to-install-skype-on-centos6-rhel6/
Run update and install wget
yum install wget
Install the dependencies and download the skype for enterprise linux
yum install libXi.so.6 libXss.so.1 libasound.so.2 libXv.so.1 libSM.so.6 libXrender.so.
yum localinstall --nogpgcheck ./skype-*.rpm
Sometimes skype will not start, the only solution to start the skype is replacing the /usr/bin/skype with the download static skype:
tar xvf skype_static-x.x.x.x.tar.bz2
cp skype_static-188.8.131.52/skype /usr/bin/skype
cp: overwrite '/usr/bin/skype' ? Y
Now its clear. You can access the skype from Applicaions -> Internet -> Skype or type skype in your terminal.
