Re: ubuntu 13.04

There's an easier work-around here (and it worked for me):
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nvidia-graphics-drivers-310/+bug/1134030

Basically, open a terminal and paste:
export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa/libGL.so.1
exec skype

Re: ubuntu 13.04

I have the same problem. But if I install open source drivers for nvidia (9800GT) - It works - skype start
System settings - Software & updates - Additional drivers - X.Org X Server... (opensource)

but only if I do not restart my PC or ubuntu crashes (some time happens).

After restart or crash - I have very slow-slow motion video rendering - near 5-10 fps (imposible) -
so I do something like this:
1. install nvidia-304 drivers instead open source
2. logout + login again (restart X-server)
3. get normal rendering speed
4. reinstall opensource drivers
5. start skype

I have to do this after even update of ubuntu or crash :sad:((( - only this way working

During start skype and crash with restricted drivers
If you look in dmesg - you will see smth like this:
..... nvidia had changed api calls
unfortunately, I dont have logs now.

use 4.0 on Ubuntu 13.04 until 4.1 works for all

[ Edited ]

tried to use 4.1 on Raring and got core dumped message each time tried 3 routes and same


This is for the ones who have had no luck with 4.1
but you need to do a few things

so it does not reinstall 4.1 when you try again [of course this is a trick until 4.1 is compatible for all on raring]

 

1. sudo apt-get remove --purge skype

2. cd /var/cache/apt/archives/ to see   if you have any remaining debs then to list ls

3. sudo rm *skype*.deb

then

 

 

 

from


Install Skype on Ubuntu 32bit [one line at a time]

 


wget -O skype http://download.skype.com/linux/skype-ubuntu_4.0.0.8-1_i386.deb
sudo apt-get install libxss1
sudo dpkg -i skype
sudo apt-get -f install && sudo rm skype

 


Install Skype on Ubuntu 64bit


wget -O skype http://download.skype.com/linux/skype-ubuntu_4.0.0.8-1_amd64.deb
sudo apt-get install libxss1 lib32stdc++6 lib32asound2 ia32-libs libc6-i386 lib32gcc1
sudo dpkg -i skype
sudo apt-get -f install && sudo rm skype

 

 

then go to synaptic and lock version so 4.1 will not be installed at your next update
[this of course until 4.1 becomes compatible for all with Raring]

Re: use 4.0 on Ubuntu 13.04 until 4.1 works for all

Yesterday i have installed kubuntu+skype on lenovo notebook with AMD E-300 CPU/GPU and problem appered on that.

So its not only NVidia issue. I guess its something in openGL libs, or something like that.
Maybe it should be repaired by skype developers.
