I recently updated skype from 4.2 to 4.3. Now skype always crashes immediately after starting without any error message. I am using Ubuntu 12.04.


Turned out I just needed to delete the hidden ~/.Skype folder in my home directory.

Deleting the subfolder ~/.Skype/my-skype-username would also solve the issue.
