Microsoft bought Skype and the problems began. If you hate monopolist like I do and you’re a Linux user you need to get away from this service as soon as possible.
Microsoft has shown in the past that they have no interest in supporting Linux, and that fact is even more solidified with the latest update to the platform. So I moved to Linphone now.
1. Get Linphone from linphone.org. To do this, go to the tab Linphone => downloads, select Linphone Windows Desktop, Mac OSX and GNU / Linux and download Linphone for Windows.
2. After the app was downloaded, setup and run. In opened window we create the account. To do this, click on the “Forward” button.
3. Input your SIP ID, SIP password, SIP server and click “Apply”. Line “Proxy” let empty. Enter your email and name that will be displayed in the application and the password, then press the «Apply».
4. From now on you can use Linphone with the account without change the SIP address. To make calls open the app and input to empty line SIP address or a phone number. After that, you will receive an activation letter on your email. Open mail and activate the account
5. If you want to use another language, go to options=>preferences=>user interface and choose the language you would like to use. This is enough to make full use the app.
Microsoft has never taken Linux seriously when it comes to their products. They don’t see it as a gain. The only real reason that Linux even has a Skype client is because before Microsoft purchased it there was a client. If you’re a Linux user you need to get away from this service as soon as possible.
