I would first like to say sorry Garret, my previous questions were not in good detail.
Using the linux_base-8 port.

-->I am using a USB headset, but have also tried one that plugs directly into my 
     microphone and speaker slots on my computer.  Now, since my USB headset
     will input sound from one device, and output from another, I am in a little      
     here is a picture of the options for headset in the skype port:

     As you can see, there is only one device I can use for my headset, (there is 
     supposed to be a program called DSP highjacker for this, but I would think 
     that there would be a better way.)  Now, I downloaded the Linux static binary
     with QT compiled in from the skype website ( and  tried it 
     on my computer, if I go into the options in that one, I see this:

     You may want to know why I am even writing this if I can just use the Linux 
     Skype, well, I am writing this because the Linux build will not let me call

     it will just keep saying connecting, and nothing ever happens, I can however
     see who is online at the moment:

    So, my question is, how can I either make the Skype port let me use two devices
    or, allow the Linux Skype to let me call people and receive calls.
    I think that about sums it up.

    Thank you.
