A normal user is not supposed to install the non-default f6
(unfortunately skype requires it, so in case you come this way,
complain to the maintainer of skype to not provide enough instructions
for you). If someone installs f6, he is supposed to know enough about
the topic that he doesn't stumbles over this problem. If someone
stumbles over it, he doesn't know enough about it yet. f6 support is
experimental stuff, so expect problems.
I never failed to convince an audience that the best thing they
could do was to go away.
