Skype For [not doing] Business on Linux

S4B on Linux can be used with Pidgin and Sipe plugin.
  1. Follow build/install instructions or get distro binaries. For example, on xUbuntu distros, install latest & greatest sipe plugin with
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sipe-collab/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install pidgin-sipe
  2. Configure according to description in this guide. NOTES:
    • avoid using SSO unless you have kerberos with domain login fully set up (ok, just avoid it)
    • use remmina as a remote desktop client (install it if you don't have it in the system)
  3. For User Agent string try to use latest and greatest from this blog
