Skype on Ubuntu 11.04
Good old Skype, it seems to have been in Linux Beta forever! I suppose now that Skype is part of the happy Microsoft “family”, it probably always will.
Anyway, I recently had a problem where Skype would not open on my Ubuntu 11.04 laptop. Well, to be precise, Skype opened and closed immediately. The solution was simple enough.
Firstly, open a terminal window
When you have done this, restart Skype. You will need to supply your username and password, and maybe check any configuration options, but Skype will be working again!
