    Any way to install skype web plugin through wine?

    Hi guys!

    I wanna to install skype web plugin through wine but get a stuck with it. I'm sure than not only me want to try online skype instead of awful native linux client.

    So here my story: I changed user agent on my browser to windows and downloaded SkypeWebPlugin. Then I run it through wine

    wine msiexec /i SkypeWebPlugin.msi
    But I got this error:

    fixme:storage:create_storagefile Storage share mode not implemented.
    fixme:advapi:EventRegister {5eec90ab-c022-44b2-a5dd-fd716a222a15}, 0x10001123, 0x1001d020, 0x1001d038
    err:msi:ITERATE_Actions Execution halted, action L"CA_PreInstallChecks" returned 1603
    err:msi:ITERATE_Actions Execution halted, action L"ExecuteAction" returned 1603
    fixme:advapi:EventUnregister deadbeef: stub
    fixme:advapi:EventUnregister 0: stub
    If somebody have any suggestions, please, leave your thoughts here. Thanks!

    Btw, if you have any tips how to make native linux client more pretty, share it here!

    Good luck and have a nice day.

    About the thing to make skype prettier. If you have in mind that the linux skype client is not using your default theme and cursor then install the 32-bit libraries necessary for it to do that.

    sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-murrine:i386 gtk2-engines-pixbuf:i386
