I am looking for good alternative(if it is possible) for Skype for Bussines for Linux users. I know about Pidgin trick, about third party software like TelRed.

My question sounds:

Do any of You dear Users know good solution for Linux user which resolve problem with lack of native support for Skype for Business ?

I know about portal.offcie365 and Web Client but my users wanna use S4B on Linux for video conversation not only for message.

I am looking for free/open source solutions or cheap.

  • You may try : linphone or Ekiga – zarqos.os Jul 19 '17 at 13:14
  • We have the same issue here. At first I used Sky (TelRed). But it crashes a lot and floods my desktop with stupid error messages. I ended up using Pidgin for Messages and I start my Windows VM with Lync for Calls. If someone tries to call me while my Windows VM is down, I receive an Email and can call back. – pLumo Jul 19 '17 at 13:22
  • Welcome to Software Recommendations! We will need much more information to give good recommendations here – asking for "a tool like X" is never giving enough details, even if linked. You should always list your requirements explicitly. Please see How to ask for an alternative to some software and the questions linked to it for details. Especially missing: What features do you need? I see video chat between the lines. Conferences? Texting? File exchange? Desktop sharing? …? – Izzy Jul 19 '17 at 15:01
  • @ zarqos.os Linphone and Ekiga doesn't support S4B it can be good alternative but i don't wanna support two different platforms for communication. Unfortunately i don't have idea how i can resolve my problem. Idea with VW sounds good but users didn't want change systems they wanna only Linux and native solutions. – Przemon Jul 23 '17 at 14:26
