    Default Skype installation doesn't work, needs libQtGui.so.4

    I've installed the OpenSuse version of Skype, downloaded from the Skype website. When I try to run it, I get this:
    Code:
    skype: error while loading shared libraries: libQtGui.so.4:
    cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    As far as I can tell, I have all the available qt packages installed, libqt4 and libqt4-x11 in particular.

    You're on 64-bit, probably, and that file is 32-bit. Skype is TERRIBLE
    about listing its dependencies and so you'll get to fight a few of these
    (sorry).

    libqt4-x11-32bit

    Good luck.

    You need to do that on a 64bit system:

    Code:
    zypper in libqt4-x11-32bit libsigc++2-32bit libpng12-0-32bit

    That did it -- sort of. I got past the error complaint and was able to log onto Skype. But there's no sound -- the Skype sound test produces nothing. Same for the sound test call. I've verified that my sound system is working in general, since I can use aplay on a wav file. I wonder if there might be a similar dependency problem with the sound. If so, how can I find it?

    So you hear the Skype operators voice but can't hear your voice? Hear ring tones and such?

    If so go to the mixer. see if you have a Mic control and that it is not muted. Also a Mic boast and a capture control. If you don't see them add them from the settings menu. Make sure they are not muted and the capture box is checked. You should hear any sounds from the Mic feed back though the speaker or earphones. You may need to play with these controls a bit.
