Re: ubuntu 13.04

This may possibly work for you (untested):

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1compat.so:/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa/libGL.so.1 skype

Re: ubuntu 13.04

Actually, it's ubuntu. I don't have an nvidia graphic card, and I'm still having the problem. Something that updated from 12.10 to 13.04 causes skype to not work properly, and for most not even launch period. It would be nice if it was still in the Software Center, but it doesn't exist, and I cant find a working version.

Re: ubuntu 13.04

Same here, using ati gfx drivers. But I did have skype running earlier, until I did a kernel upgrade to 3.9rc8 to get my hdmi audio working and now I cant start skype lol.

I tried to remove amd driver and install opensource driver http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu_Natty_Installation_Guide#Removing_Catalyst.2Ffglrx and then I got skype working but I can't go on with opensource driver so I installed again amd driver but again no skype...does anyone have any idea how getting skype working with amd driver?

There are a few workarounds floating around in various forums and bug reports. Personally I prefer a simple script in ~/bin. Hopefully that works with amd driver.

Ok... Actually it has been reported to work on amd drivers. What if you just do

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa/libGL.so.1 skype

 in a terminal window? You may also want to try this variant:

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa/FGL.renamed.libGL.so.1.2.0 skype
