Software :: Delete Skype Chat/call History In Fedora?
May 10, 2010
I am using skype in fedora 9. I am searching how can I delete skype call/chat history. I have searched some .dbb files in /home/<username>/.Skype/<skyID> directory like chatmsg2048.dbb. Can I safely remove these files in order to delete my chat history. Also, I cannot view these .dbb files in gedit. If I can read these files, I can better decide which history I need to delete.
I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 x32 Today I started Skype and I couldn't hear the Skype logging sound. Nevertheles I could see the contacts online. When I tried to write messages in the chat they couldn't receive them. When I tried to call nothing worked. After that it seemed that Skype was completely blocked. I clicked with the right button on the green icon of Skype and chose "quit" but it wouldn't close. 1 I logged off from Ubuntu and on again. I opened Skype. I made right click in the green icon and chose "Options"
2 I went to the "Sound Devices" menu in the left part of the window
3 I removed the tick for "Allow Skype to automatically adjust my mixer levels"
4 I closed Skype and opened it again and the sound problem was gone.
I have tried to migrate my empathy settings and chat history to another machine.I copied .config/apps/empathy .local/share/empathy .mission-control .gconfig/app/empathy...But the new empathy do not recognize these settings. What am I missing?
I recently bought a IOgear USB bluetooth adapter and a Sony DRBT101/BLK bluetooth headphones to use with my computer.Whenever I try to make a call using these headphones with skype, I can speak for say 10 seconds and then the headset disconnects completely from the system. I then have to reconnect the headset by switching it off and on. I do not have this problem listening to music using A2DP. It works fine with my mobile phone.When I change the profile to Telephony Duplex (HSP/HFP), it shows up as hands free, I thought it should be headset in blueman manager. My friend uses Plantronics headset with is Dell laptop with built in bluetooth and he says his comes up as headset not hands free. Could this be causing the problem?
Have NO video camera. Trying to receive SKYPE video using Fedora 11 & SKYPE Beta Version 126.96.36.199 [latest version].When I receive a video call the image appears and then freezes and dumps the call after about six seconds.I have tried the 'env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l2convert.so /usr/bin/skype' launch, but it makes no difference in the bug.I have NOT heard that a camera is required to receive video.Is there a fix for this?nal information: Here is the error message I get when the call dumps and crashes SKYPE.
[thsk@galley ~]$ env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l2convert.so /usr/bin/skype shm_open() failed: No such file or directory Assertion 'b' failed at pulsecore/memblock.c:439, function pa_memblock_acquire(). Aborting.
I have new machine with good configuration . Mother Board ---> Asus P5KPL AM/PS CPU --> Intel Dual core 2.50 GHZ RAM ---> 1 G.B Hard Disc ---> 160 GB
I installed Fedora 11. It 's working fine I have problem only for Skype. When I try to call some one, I got the error "Problem with audio playback". I have "skype-188.8.131.52-fc10.i586.rpm" on my machine.
A friend of mine is setting up infrastructure for a new call centre and they are using Ubuntu Linux on staff desktops. They need a chat program that will only work on the local network, and they want to allow staff to only access a browser, the chat client and spreadsheet software.
(a) What chat program can they use, and
(b) How can one disactivate most of the programs running on the desktop? Is uninstalling via synaptic/ Ubuntu Software Centre overkill?
Anyone ever try and do any type of video chat from abroad specifically? I'm going to China to teach a class for $work for two weeks and wanted to use something like Skype video chat with my family while over there (I'm in the continental United States) and wanted to know if anyone else out there had tried this or another service? My laptop runs Linux, as well as the computer at my home, so any chat service would need to be Linux friendly
At the moment the Android version of Skype doesn't support video chat at the moment, just audio.There are lots of apps in Android for video chat (Oovoo, Tango), but I can't find one that will allow me to video chat from the phone to an Ubuntu laptop.
I'm using RHEL 5.0 and i want to delete history for n users at a time.i can use history -c from each user login and delete but i want another way.or i want to create a shell script by using which i can do d task at a glance for all users.
i've recently installed pidgin via the Ubuntu Software Center. Unfortunnately it is lacking a "chat history" just like for example "Trillian" on Windows. Is there any IM-prog on Ubuntu which saves all conversations with any contact into files? (Just like Trillian on windows)
I'm having a problem with Skype. Whenever someone calls me, the incoming call popup shows up, but I can hear no sound playing. Further, if I go in Options/Notifications and try to test the incoming call event, I'm having the same problem.
The .wav file exists and Skype can play it back. I have tested this by assigning that particular .wav to a different event, where it works as expected. Additionally, the other events, e.g. outgoing call, appear to be working normally. This would suggest, that the problem lies with the incoming call event, rather than the particular sound.
Right now in order to do some recording I use Skype and Skype Call Recorder, but Skype only does audio at 16Khz. Is there some other similar program that could be used that could also be recorded at a higher quality?
I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 on ASPIRE 5315 (intel celeron)Installed SKYPE BETA 184.108.40.206.1.I have external webcam which works with CHEESE ( I could see myself and takepictures).However when I open SKYPE onle telephone (voice) call are available. I Do not have the option for video calls. I do not have/see a tool bar or a side bar so I cannot make any change or test the video. I tried to delete and download SKYPE again and id did not work.What can I do ?If you post an answer please provide step by step since I am not familiar with ubuntu.
When I open the "Options" of Skype, the camera can be recognized and there is video. But I don't know how to start a Skype video call. My Skype account is "dynamiccliu" if you want to add me and have a try the video call.
I thought I would give Gwibber a a try, so I set up my Twitter account with it. Seemed to work just fine. However, when I deleted the Twitter account from Gwibber, the messages I previously downloaded are still in the main window. I've checked for ".gwibber" in the home folder, but there's not one. So, I did a search on the machine for all Gwibber folders, and none had any message history in it.
Sound Recorder is working fine. But when try to make normal call or test call I cannot record sound my internal mic in SKYPE. As I speak something immediately the sound level of mic drops to zero. Alsa driver are installed. HDA intel conexant mic.
I am trying to use a program called skype call recorder to record calls on kubuntu, i've read that you need to configure skype to use alsa in the sound devices menu, but there isn't an option to use alsa in my sound devices menu, it just shows my two sound cards, whenever i try to record i just get silent audio files?
