Skype Gui on Kindle Touch

Moderator Notice

The licence keys for this project expired on 19 November 2012, and so the attached applications will not run.



Spoiler:
I tested Skype console application on Kindle Touch, and decided to develop very simple GUI on Kindle Touch.

Requirements:
- to give a list of contacts
- to make a voice calls to accounts and cell phones
- to send and receive mesages
- to send sms

The first screenshots of program:



Spoiler:


Spoiler:


How to start Skype:
1. Terminal, ssh :
- To run_skype_directly.sh script

2. Gui Launcher:
- It's better to run run_voice.sh script which uses crond application.
Advantage: It allows to work Skype in background mode during reading a books.
Disadvantage: crond loads the Skype during 1 minute.


Development key "keypair.pem" will expire on January 19, 2013.


Description:
http://kindlesoft.blogspot.com/

Versions:
skype.zip - first based version
skype1.zip - added status of accounts , improved and fixed GUI.

skype2.zip - added background mode (
Hide Skype - to click on the Hide button in the Main Window
Show Skype - to run again run_voice.sh script from GUI Launcher )

skype3.zip - runs skype application by using crond command.
- maked a calls to Cell Phones.
- improved and fixed GUI.

skype4.zip - updates development keys

looks useful. I would be reticent to use it without source.

EDIT:

THIS PROJECT IS NOW DEAD.
DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME ON IT!!!!

It would help to have an attachment, or download links. I cannot use screenshots.

Source.? I like to read the source of things that want my username and password.

Much as I am sure you are a lovely person.
Any chance of?

Awesome!

It'd be nice if one can run Skype in background while reading. Does anyone know how to bring a process to the front on the screen (in Xorg)?

IIRC correctly it would be injecting the relevant title in the titlebar - info on the wiki.

Much appreciate the app but I would prefer to see the source. and build it myself.

Many thanks

I think we should add the GMLIB eink library to this so we can display incoming Skype video. We will have to wait for USB OTG support and ARM linux webcam drivers before we can add outgoing video. But we could send a static video image of an avatar image or a photo saved on the kindle.

These are some reasons why we need source code and build instructions.

True he did. which said that the app would stop working after 60 days.

Fair enough I still don't see why sharing the build folders would hurt but okay.
I'll stop asking.

It also said you could renew it. (the developer key)

But you have a valid point.
