HOWTO Skype 3 with Wine
1. Install Wine 0.9.29 (verified) and begin with a fresh ~./wine directory.
2. Install Skype 126.96.36.199 (verified) from http://www.skype.com and the SkypeSetup.exe file. The installer should run flawlessly.
Run #winecfg and select Windows 98 mode for Skype.exe if it's not
already done. You may use the ALSA sound driver with this program,
however OSS will work just as well. Select native support for shdocvw.dll and shlwapi.dll. More information on this can be found here.
4. Use Skype!
