Skype screen share freezes desktop

Postby juandlr » Fri Jun 28, 2013 8:44 pm

Hi,

Im new to using Mint, my favorite distribution so far, love Cinammon but there is always something that just ruins something otherwise perfect.
Everytime i try to share my screen with skype, my desktop freezes and the only thing i can do is right click, basically it becomes unusable, sometimes im lucky to right click and close skype so that i can regain control of the desktop or wait till the other person hangs up. Is anyone else experiencing this, any fixes.

Thank You
Juan

Also having this issue on Mint 15. On top of that, when the other party shares their screen or turns on video, it only comes through as a green rectangle.

I'm a new Linux user and also having this issue. When tried finding a solution I found this thread so I hope I'm not bumping the thread for no reason if there's a solution elsewhere.
