    When trying to test the plugin by clicking the skye button, I get a "protocol not recognized" error. I am using latest firefox version on an Ubuntu Linux machine.

    Sadly, the Skype client for Linux is far behind the one for Windows. This also means browser integration so that links starting with skype: will launch the Skype client.

    You can configure Firefox to recognize them but even then you will need a wrapping script to detect if the Skype client is already active before launching it to prevent a nasty bug...

    It's all far from perfect, I'm afraid.
