Yes, it takes over a minute to start up on my P4 3.2 Ghz machine w/2Gb ram.
That's pretty slow! :( I installed it with:
dpkg --ignore-depends libqt3c102-mt -i skype_188.8.131.52-1_i386.deb
But then uninstalled it because it shows up as an invalid install, so I can't
apt-get upgrade. At least now I can install it and use it when I need to, then
uninstall it when I'm done, so I can communicate with my co-workers. :)
Thanks! No need to reinstall when you get home, I got it running.
