Skype-bot ############### Introduction ############### Skype-bot is a Python script that can send chat messages to the Skype user names listed in your Skype contacts list. The message is sent only at the moment your contact appears online. This script can be used to send advertisements over Skype too. Installation ############### To run this script the following is required: 1- Debian GNU/Linux . This script was only tested and programmed on Debian 6.0 (Squeeze) It should run in the other Linux ditributions though. 2- Python 2.6.6 ( installed from Squeeze) 3- latest Linux version of Skype. 4- Install the package named python-skype: apt-get install python-skype This library is called also Skype4Py. Check your distribution for it. 5- Save the file skype-bot.py any where you like. Using your home directory directly as location should be fine. Running The Bot ################ 1- Open your terminal. 2- Do _NOT_ forget to run Skype before running the script. _Always_ run Skype _before_ the script. Else, the script will look buggy, and will not run. 3- Assuming that skype-bot.py is saved in the home directory run the script like this: python skype-bot.py 4- Skype will ask then "Another program wants to use Skype". Just click "Yes" and check the box "Remember this selection". 5- To make sure that the script will always run go to "Options" -> "Public API". The word "Skype4Py" must be listed there.
