I use Skype under Gutsy, but for voice-calls only. According to
http://skype.com/intl/en/download/skype/linux/ there is a new beta of Skype,
which includes video call functionality. I have not yet come to test it, but
it should work :) If you installed skype from the gutsy repos I believe you
are using 1.4. The new 2.0 beta can be downloaded at the location I
mentioned above (as a .deb package).
Slightly off topic: Why are you using Gutsy 7.10 *RC* ? The final version is
out. "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" :)
And also: do you have a better networking experience with static IPs?
Dynamic IPs should work just as well.
