It might be worth looking upstream for possible issues; the packaging seems fine, but I use neither skype or pidgin anymore sorry.

hmm doesn't seem to work for me anymore

Works perfectly. Thanks!

@roadnottaken: Give that a go. I added a prepare step to copy the skype heading and duplicate it as 'Skype (D-Bus)'.

Hmm ok. I'll take a look when I get home from work this afternoon.

Thanks for the update. skype4pidgin is a nice package and I'm glad to see it's alive and well. My only outstanding annoyance with it is that the skype icons aren't carried over to the skype-dbus theme. It looks like creating a [Skype (D-Bus)] heading in the theme file which duplicates all the definitions under the [Skype] heading should do the trick.

I'm going to be requesting this gets merged in to the SVN version anyway, since there isn't really a seperate stable version for skype4pidgin; the latest pre-build .so files on the website even are just the latest committed build at pretty much all times, so maintaining 2 of them is a bit useless.

Pidgin started recently to complain with:

/usr/lib32/skype/skype: unrecognized option '--enable-dbus'
/usr/lib32/skype/skype: unrecognized option '--use-session-dbus'

After some seconds, pidgin exits and skype remains on the foreground.
I switched from 653 to skype4pidgin-svn (664) and problem is fixed.

This is an svn package, rebuilding it will use the latest revision and update the version when you run makepkg.

You should update the used revision in PKGBUILD to be 665, as it fixes a nasty Pidgin crash.
