EDIT Share the love, retweet my original announcement!
jflatt at the invaluable tmo forum published an approach to install the N9 version of Real Golf 2011 on N950. It is a mind-numbingly simple task of just adding the N9 apt source repo to your lists.
$ devel-su Password: rootme # cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d # echo "deb https://qa9recEP:Pat2UGuP@downloads.maemo.nokia.com/harmattan/001 ./" > n9.list
“001” is the device code that replaces “rm680” for N950. Real Golf requires some additional hacking (see link above), but that is not what I wanted to talk about. First question on my mind was: can I finally get Skype UI installed on the N950 the same way?
Continuing from before:

My existing mc-tool’d Skype account did not show up after this procedure. So I removed it.
$ mc-tool list $ mc-tool remove account-name-here
Then I launched Skype from the fresh new app launcher icon that appeared, entered my account info again, logged in and everything seems fine so far.
I believe it was Jamie Oliver who said: Happy Days!
