Works. Nice little app. Made me install qt4 though, but I will need it for some other stuff anyway.

I don't do skype, but I have a couple of qt4 apps I built for myself back when I was using VL6 alfa1.2. I just didn't get around to installing them yet since upgrading to RC4.

Good thing about qt apps is that they are usualy not dependent on kde libs. That way the system stays slim. Hey, qt4 is not that big  :P
I think that vec should definately ship with qt4 instead of qt3 by default if possible. There is a qt4 build of opera and it works alright..

I think there are still too many qt3 apps for that move yet, also specially considering Gambas apps. And I agree it is not too big, IF only qt3 or only qt4 was necessary... ;)
