I've just got a crappy sound in Skype on Ubuntu 13.10 (64-bit) and after some searches, has found a workaround here:


However, the solution which helped me on 64-bit system was the following:


1. Remove original sound plugins with the command: sudo apt-get remove libasound2-plugins


2. Reinstall them again without specifying the "i386": sudo apt-get install libasound2-plugins


Hopefully that will help someone else here as well.
