How do you get the mouse to talk?
Davide Varvello recently
announced success using
Skype Voip with Squeak.
I’m playing with Squeak and Skype APIs for personal goals, I’m not a COM/.Net guru, I don’t know almost anything of the Microsoft world, but following John Pierce’s instructions here: http://www.visoracle.com/squeakfaq/com-activex.html and here: http://www.saltypickle.com/SqueakDotNet/ I was able to make talk Squeak and Skype.
First of all you should download the latest version of Skype4COM , unzip it and use the tlbimp utility on Skype4COM.dll to create a .Net wrapper (SKYPE4COMLib.dll) move it in the Squeak directory for ease of use.
Now launch Skype and Squeak, open a workspace and paste this:
DotNet Assembly loadFrom: ‘SKYPE4COMLib.dll’.
skype := DotNet SkypeClass new.
to place a call on the skype testing user.
If you have skype credit, you can also try this:
skype sendSms:’0123456789′ with:’Squeak rocks!!’.
Have fun 😉
