When i run skype from terminal this message appear, but skype run successfully. I have checked that unity-gtk-module is installed in my system and required lib files are available but in 64 environment. There is not package named unity-gtk-module:i386. I have created a soft link of appropriate lib to /usr/lib but skype return ELF Class error (not 32bit lib). I also set GTK_PATH but still not working. How to install 32bit version of library for unity-gtk-module?

export GTK_PATH=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gtk-2.0/modules/

Skype was working (I had the noise problem , if somebody tried to call me , than all I heard was a long buzz, which stopped only if I shut Skype down)

I wanted to upgrade to Skype downloaded from Skype.com the ~ skype-ubuntu-precise_4.2.0.13-1_i386.deb ~

I removed the old skype with:

sudo apt-get remove --purge skype

I run the

sudo dpkg -i skype-ubuntu-precise_4.2.0.13-1_i386.deb

then I tried to run


Then this shows up:

Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "overlay-scrollbar"
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "unity-gtk-module"
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module"

Now skype wont even start. Any ideas?

Thank you
