Everytime someone calls me, I click to answer and skype drops the call. I don't get the call dropped message or anything, the call just dissapears. Skype worked great before I upgraded to version 4. Is anyone else having this issue?
Just downgraded back to 2.2, couldn't figure this out an it's killing me!!!!
Really liked the interface updates in 4 though, thanks Skype team. Looking forward to the next version, perhaps my problem will be fixed.
It would be great if a solution could be found. I don't see anything odd in my logs. I'm using debian squeeze 32 bit , 3.3 kernel, and KDE desktop. I also have another PC running xubuntu. Everything works fine there. Seems to be a rare issue, I don't have any idea what could cause it.
Am having the exact same problem. Can making outgoing calls just fine, incoming calls get dropped when I click to answer. Happens on Skype net calls and SkypeIn calls. I'm running Debian testing (wheezy) on amd64 with all packages updated.
I was having this problem with Skype 4 and Arch (64 bit). I deleted my ~/.Skype folder, which was the same one I originally had from Skype 2, and I have not had a problem answering calls since.
This solution worked for me also. Shut down skype. Remove (or rename) .Skype directory. Start up skype so new .Skype directory gets created. Able to answer calls without call window vanishing. Thanks!
Something in .Skype directory hung over from Skype 2.x causes problem for Skype 4. The quick skim of the diffs - too numerous to pinpoint anything in particular.
OK, I removed Skype 2.x via apt-get purge. Removed the .Skype directory by rm -Rvf .Skype. Re-installed skype 4.x had a few people try to call and I still can't answer PSTN calls get a busy signal, calls from a skype use go to voicemail.
