    I have been having issues with Skype for Pidgin. It started today. I am looking into it, but for the time I have worked on an update that might help some people.

    1. sudo apt-get install libpurple-dev libjson-glib-dev cmake gcc
    2. mkdir skype
    3. git clone git://github.com/EionRobb/skype4pidgin.git
    4. cd skype4pidgin/skypeweb
    5. mkdir build
    6. cd build
    7. cmake ..
    8. cpack
    9. ls
    10. Look for a deb file and select the text and copy it.
    11.sudo dpkg -i [deb package here without brackets]
    12. Type cd .. until you are just before the skype folder we created.
    13. rm -rf skype
