[SOLVED] trouble with Skype

Skype would not open today. I went to the Software Manager to reinstall, but it's no longer there, which I found strange. I could not locate it inside the SynapticPM either.

I use Skype often. I need it up and running asap. Can anyone help?

Re: WIFI Slow to re-connect on Resume from Suspend or Hiibernate

Just to make sure, this is of course what I meant: sudo ifconfig -v wlp2s0 up Pjotr, this command isn't helping, and may actually be slowing my machine down. I've been having extra trouble with my Realtek side ever since using it. Please tell me how to reverse it so I can compare and see. Thanks!

Re: WIFI Slow to re-connect on Resume from Suspend or Hiibernate

Disconnects may be due to wifi power-saving mode or interference from nearby devices. I wrote a script that will detect disconnected wifi and will reconnect it automatically. I can post it if you're interested. Already fixed the potential power-saving bug with a script from another thread. Disconne...

Re: WIFI Slow to re-connect on Resume from Suspend or Hiibernate

On my hardware, LM18.2 also connects much slower than LM17.3, even the panel network animation in 18.2 gets permanently stuck in "connecting..." even after it has connected. You should have waited for LM19 or LM20 :idea: Also, LM18.2 takes 10+ seconds to suspend, whereas LM17.3 suspends i...

Re: WIFI Slow to re-connect on Resume from Suspend or Hiibernate

in reality it does not enhance the reception at all. In fact, my WIFI signal is now defaulting to my much weaker internal WIFI and ignoring the much stronger 5G Realtek signal altogether. It only kicks the wifi chipset back to work when down (i.e. turned off); it doesn't improve reception. Two enti...

Try: wlp2s0 What is supposed to happen then? (In my case, nothing happened and I had to reboot like always when the platform goes into suspend mode after a few minutes of inactivity.)

Re: WIFI Slow to re-connect on Resume from Suspend or Hiibernate

I can only confirm this behaviour still exists even in 18.2 (cinnamon//64bit). Additionally it's very annoying that there is no way to force the networkmanager to reconnect immediately . Try the terminal: 1. Establish the logical name of your wifi chipset (for example: wlx6cfdb83af4d5) with: inxi -...

Re: aux. WIFI not found

Your last comments about not finding the software made me remember that the aux antennae came with an install driver CD. The name is Netis. For the WF2561 AC1200 Wireless Dual Band High Power USB Adapter. So it looks like I may have the missing software you need, but I will need some help mounting i...
