Skype for Fedora 14 x86_64

If you use the skype official rpm on Fedora14 x86_64, it will end up “command not found”.

Apparently it’s dependency missing in spec file, so I just install qt.i686 and qt-x11.i686.

It’s still showing:
skype: error while loading shared libraries: libXv.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

and

skype: error while loading shared libraries: libXss.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

then I installed the missing dependency:
yum install libXv.i686 libXScrnSaver.i686

Summary:
In Fedora 14 x86_64, you need
yum -y install qt.i686 qt-x11.i686 libXv.i686 libXScrnSaver.i686

Does Opera 10.60 supports IBus?

I’ve been waiting the opera release version for IBus support. And finally Opera changelog states that it support IBus and scim. I then download the x86_64 version for my desktop which runs Fedora 12.

But, WTH, ctrl-space still not trigger the input method?Great. I’ve tried various environment variables, but still no use.

Then I use okteta to dig the opera binary, and find the string.

XOpenIM

Ok, it uses XIM. (Guys and gals, no need to play with GTK_IM_MODULES and QT_IM_MODULES, they don’t work).
IBus does support XIM, but my IBus icon still unlit with opera (My language bar is always on).

Finally, I thought this might only appear in 64 bit opera, so I install the 32 bit opera in my mini311 which runs Fedora 13, and it worked out-of-box (sort of). So I went back to my desktop and install 32 bit opera, and it worked.

When I was searching the solution of using IBus with opera, I noticed that many ibus-pinyin user complained that ibus-pinyin cannot send the whole sentence to opera. My ibus-chewing has this problem as well, but you can avoid this issue by setting the option input style to “in application window”.
