     94== Setting up Skype in a VNC server (optional)
     95
     96Optionally, if you want to run Skype on a server, you might want to setup up
     97a VNC server as well. I used `tightvnc` but probably other VNC servers will
     98work, too.
     99
     100First run
     101
     102----
     103vncpasswd ~/.vnc/passwd
     104----
     105
     106and create a password. You will need it at least once.
     107
     108Now create `~/.vnc/xstartup` with the following contents:
     109
     110----
     111#!/bin/sh
     112
     113/usr/bin/sleep 1
     114/usr/bin/skype &
     115/usr/bin/sleep 5
     116/usr/sbin/skyped
     117----
     118
     119Then start the server:
     120
     121----
     122vncserver
     123----
     124
     125Then connect to it, and set up Skype (username, password, enable autologin, and
     126allow the `SkypeApiPythonShell` client when Skype asks about it).

    122156== What needs to be done (aka. TODO)
    123157
    124 - document how do I run skype on a server using vnc
     158- Empty? No, this is not possible. I need more testers! :-)
    125159
    126160== I would like to have support for ...
    127161
    128 If something does not work and it's not in the TODO section, then please contact me!
     162If something does not work and it's not in the TODO section, then please
     163contact me!
     164
     165In fact, of course, I wrote this documentation after figured out how to do this
     166setup, so maybe I left out some steps. If you needed 'any' additional tricks,
     167then it would be nice to include them here.
