Xsession: X session started for peter at Sat Oct 14 15:56:02 PDT 2006

OK, I'll try to fix it for sake of tidyness.
I can start skype from the VNC client here after all.
A message returns as skype starts.
peter@joule:~$ skype &
peter@joule:~$ Xlib: extension "XInputExtension" missing on display ":1.0".
What does the complaint about XInputExtension mean?
Thanks, ... Peter Easthope
