    Why you are trying to run Skype using wine??? Skype has native Ubuntu version, which works great.

    Skype won't work in wine.

    use the Skype for linux version.

    Hello,

    I have the same problem right here.

    The point is, with the windows version of Skype, you can connect your Skype account to your Facebook account in order to do Facebook video calls. Until now there is no way to video call someone who has only Facebook.

    I guess the most common solution would be, to fix wine to run the Skype Windows version.

    Bye

    No surprise with Microsoft owning both Skype and part of Facebook. I don't think Microsoft has any intention to make this work in Linux. Be happy that there still is Skype for Linux.
