I downloaded the latest upgrade in May 2012, and as always, I experienced some issues. My Skype is no longer working. I've tried to uninstall and reinstall and it still locks up every time I try to use it. I've tried logging onto Ubuntu with the previous version and it still won't work. Are there any solutions for someone who has limited knowledge of Linux?

  • May I know your kernel and skype version? copy paste this and run in terminal : uname -a ; skype --version – penreturns Jun 23 '12 at 21:08

You could try to delete the old Skype folder (where some settings are stored). Open your filemanager, press CTRL+H to view hidden files and folders. You will see the .Skype folder, delete or rename it to something different. Then start Skype again.
