    Unhappy SKYPE not launching and endsup with "failed to execute child process"


    Dear Friends

    I would like to install skype in my fedora 16 and startd the process by downloading skype rpm from website and installed successfully, but not launching

    I googled and find that I need to install some lib files
    These are the files
    "libXv.i686
    libXScrnSaver.i686
    qt.i686 qt-x11.i686
    pulseaudio-libs.i686
    pulseaudio-libs-glib2.i686
    alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i686"

    While installing the files the yum process end with following error.

    Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit

    You need the 32bit versions of the libraries installed for Skype to work on Linux - it is only available as a 32bit image. That means if you install the application directly with rpm, ignoring dependencies, when you run it it will tell you what shared libraries it cannot find/load. You will then need to install the 32bit packages that contain them. It took me a few tries before I got them all installed on my 64-bit Scientific Linux (RHEL) 6 system before it would run properly, but I did get it to work, and it handles my webcam and bluetooth headset just fine.

    1. Download and install the generic Linux binary.
    2. Run binary from a command-line. If it runs, and you get the GUI, you are done. If not, go to #3.
    3. See what shared library can't be loaded. This will be in the error messages you get in the command-line window.
    4. Install the 32-bit package that contains that library (some Googling may be required).
    5. Go to #2 and try again.

    It took me about 4 or 5 tries and some google searches to get all the dependencies loaded. After that, it just works. Not as pretty as the Windows version, but I can do both voice and video calls.

    Dear Rabberman

    I googled a lot for generic Linux binary. but I reached nowhere.
    and I downloaded fedoora 16 i386(32-bit) version, will it be of any use.

    Thanks in advance...

    I used the FC10 rpm from skype. It's running on my RHEL 6.2 system now.
