Skype problem!

Postby tanja on Sun Jun 29, 2014 6:49 pm

Hey guys, I have a big problem here...I have installed skype for a several days ago on my lap-top, and now I can't see and speak with my friends because it is problem with my camera I guess..When I want to call someone it comes with message 'Problem with audio playback'...
If someone knows what is going on, and what packages I have to install, please give me an answer or advise...
Thank you!

Hi tanja


You haven't told us which release of Mint you are running, which Desktop Environment or whether it is 32bit or 64bit.. This can make it difficult for anyone to know if they know of a potential fix for your issue or not.

Here is a quote from the release notes of the Mate and Cinnamon editions of Mint 17, just in case it's relevant..
Issues with Skype
In 64-bit, if you're experiencing issues with Skype, install the package "ia32-libs".

You're welome :D

Once you have skype working, assuming that ia32-libs is the problem of course, can you edit your first post of this topic to include [solved] so that others know there is a solution in this thread, thank you :)
