Re: [Evolution] using skype

Kontact has buttons to dial & sms from the contact (kaddressbook) part.  It is do-able.

Yeah, like Exchange or GroupWise?

Good point. What I should have said is that IMHO Evo is not going to
implement a special Skype button. What is more conceivable, if there
were sufficient demand, is a general-purpose "Phone this contact"
button, which the user could set up to use whatever VOIP app he
preferred. I've no idea how practical this is (e.g. how many of the VOIP
apps allow you to specify the phone number from the command line or via
a DBUS message?)
