It's probably a matter of setting up the file permissions correctly. Spec. Check that you have rw permissions on /dev/audio and adjust groups accordingly so that you have proper access to relevant devices. Also, if you ran Skype as su, check that ~/.Skype is still accessible to your (non-su) user account.

How to install Skype on Ubuntu There are several methods for installing Skype on Ubuntu: From the Skype website (not recommended) I assume that this is actually what you've did. I actually never used this method because: It provides you a package designed for Ubuntu 12.04. So it might not support well later versions. For example, if there is a ...

I experienced the same, and that's what helped me: sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ondrej-php5-trusty.list Than remove the hashes (#) re-enable that PPA which were disabled by updating system sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install skype

I solved the problem: When I first put my computer up, I had some trouble with the HDMI signal on my monitor. So I connected both cables, so I could switch easily, whenever necessary. I forgot about it and apparently Ubuntu started seeing it as two different monitors. So the windows disappeared onto the 'other screen', which was non-existent and that ...

A little nice extension to the solution: sudo vi /usr/share/applications/skype.desktop and add the above mentioned add (LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1compat.so) to the line Exec=env PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=60 skype %U so that this line is Exec=env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1compat.so PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=60 skype %U ...

I assue that after trying to install from the .deb, you had a half-installed package lingering. To get rid of everything skype-related, use sudo apt-get purge skype in a terminal window (or if that fails, use dpkg -P skype). Installing from the partner repo should work then.

Maybe this link will help with the Steam issue~ Steam Game Not Loading on Ubuntu 14.04 They mentioned modifying the launch files in a text editor.

If you're on the default Ubuntu or Ubuntu GNOME, you can simply remove the close button from the list, leaving only minimize and maximize: $ gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout 'close,minimize,maximize:' So do: gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout 'minimize,maximize:'


1

What actually happens when the close button is clicked, depends on the program. In my Ubuntu 14.04 both Steam and Skype are minimized to a tray icon, and keep running. So this is most likely a misconfiguration of these applications, and not the fault of Gtk+ or Qt.

I think you need to activate the Canonical Partner repository.

A simple free antivirus program that I use ...
