When you dial a Skype username with blogtalkradio it asks you to press 1 to talk to a host. You can see this behavior by trying any number on blogtalkradio. How do you press one in Linux? Skype for Linux is now up to version Does it have this functionality?

Can you not display a keypad in this version? – user3463 Oct 28 '12 at 20:23
If I know what a keypad was, or where to hit to get it, or how to work around it not being there -- I'd not have asked the question. – Evan Carroll Oct 28 '12 at 20:24
I don't use Skype and I'm new to the service. I didn't like eBay, and I like Microsoft even less. – Evan Carroll Oct 28 '12 at 20:25
2… seems to acknowledge this issue. Not sure whether there's a real fix yet – Cole Oct 28 '12 at 20:27
There’s at least a work-around for it. – Synetech Oct 28 '12 at 23:41

Interestingly, this question was asked on October 28 by me. Merely 17 days later Skype would react to community demand and put out a new version 4.1 which fixed this problem.

User interface tweaks to improve the experience

We have tweaked the user interface a bit to improve the experience. The tweaks include:

  • Hotkey "d" added to invoke dialpad during Skype-to-Skype and conference calls
  • Pressing ESC will now exit full screen call view
  • Notification of unread messages in middle of the call
  • Differentiate between local and remote holding of call

Kudos to Skype, find Skype 4.1 here, and find the blog entry of the 4.1 Linux change set here.
