    Question Unable to start Skype

    hi,
    just like everyone who gets trouble after moving from windows to Linux. i am one of them.
    i have installed the Skype successfully from this help page
    SDB:Skype - openSUSE
    but when I click on Skype icon from internet>more application . in the bar it shows like, Skype is trying to connect but after some seconds it disappears from the task bar.
    i am using Opensuse 11.3 KDE desktop.

    64 or 32 bit?

    Try opening a konsole and stating skype form the command line so we can see any error messages. Just type skype at the command prompt.

    find the error you figured out to win the game named "How do i solve
    this little puzzle!)
