I can't seem to get skype to work in Ubuntu 13.04. I started a thread on the ubuntu forum and have tried these solutions that haven't worked: 1, 2, 3 and more that I don't have the patience to fish out of my browser history.
The problem is skype is installed and when I try to open it, nothing happens. When I try to open it in Terminal it says 'Aborted' and that's it.
I read a bit about the known bug on this support community but I haven't yet found something that makes skype start!
