Hi All,

Just wanted to say thanks to everybody for helping me get Skype running on my iBook G4. way cool. now I can use this box as a backup for my other machines at work when I have to take them offline.

I do have a small request, how do I get skype to not start when I reboot the machine. I just want to run it when its needed not all the time.

Thanks,
Sean

Check if Skype is listed in System Preferences > Users & Groups > Login Items. If so, remove it and it should stop coming up when you log in.

Thanks guys,

Once again the knowledge on this forum is amazing. I am continued to be amazed at how this machine can still be a useful and productive machine. I just installed a 5400 Mah battery so I shall be good to go for a while. I maxed out the ram and put an SSD in it so its pretty darn fast to boot.

Well I actually read both. I understood the process at that point and just vi'd the file, and made the changes required. I also did the ui.skype.com 127.0.0.1 change so I didn't get the annoying upgrade message. Without both docs it wouldn't of been as easy. Thanks to both of you.
