    It is not happening to me. Try running from a terminal and see if it is throwing any errors.
    openSUSE 12.3 (x86_64) with Kernel 3.7.10-1.16-desktop and KDE 4.11.2 on MacBook Pro
    Latest MS Windows version used: Win95

    Are you running 32/64 bit Linux? Is the Skype you tried to install 32/64 bit?

    You should use 32 Skype even if running 64 bit Linux. 64 bit Skype is still very much beta. You do have to add a couple of 32 bit versions of a couple of libraries.

    i _guess_ you have the latest kernel and have the same problem:

    which makes me guess one of you needs to file a bug report, and the
    other needs to add a comment to it...see:

    note: that other posting found using this google search string:

    Maybe I miss it or it is nowhere written:
    Which version of skype (exactly) do you have installed and from which place
    (a repository, with 1-click, from the skype web page)?
    Can you post the output from

    Code:
    rpm -q skype

    But you did not tell us where it comes from, my own skype for 11.3 is the
    following one:

    (I cannot guarantee that what you want to do will work with what I use, I do
    conference only with audio and chat I do not use video).

    http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-linux-beta-static

    That works for me on 64 bit opensuse 11.3. I installed it simply in my home
    folder (installation = unpack it) and made a symlink in ~/bin to the skype
    executable.
    So if it does not work for you it is almost trivial to remove it.

    You need to uninstall your skype with yast first.
