    Skype not working


    Hi! When I open Skype, pops up login window and after about 5-10seconds it dissapears. I have tried reinstalling it, it doesn't help. I am unable to use Skype for about 3weeks now. What can I do to fix it?

    How did you install it? via package manager or from the website?

    Oh I don't know, then. I did have trouble with skype from the package manager on Ubuntu. So from that day forward, I always just installed the .deb file I downloaded off the skype website. Have you tried the skype forums? I'm guessing you've already tried removing the packages and reinstalling them, right?

    Uninstall via package manager and reinstall from the skype website. Make sure you choose the .deb file for either 32-bit or 64-bit, depending on your architecture.

    Thanks a lot! It worked, after I uninstalled all plugins for Skype! Now it works!

    Good, I'm glad. Thanks for reporting back, too. Also, stick around the community. You might find some new friends here. I recommend introducing yourself in the coffee lounge. Also, feel free to post a screenshot of your distro, while you're in the coffee lounge, on the screenshots 2011 thread. Hope you enjoy your stay here.
