Hello to all,

I am new to Linux and rather not skilled at using the Terminal application.
I chose openSuse after reading many reviews claiming it is the best distribution for laptop users.
I am currently testing on VirtualBox before I go ahead and switch OS.

I downloaded and installed Skype but when I try to launch, no joy.
Bouncy Skype icon appears next to my cursor and after a while it disappears.

I Googled for answers and fixes but nothing I found so far has helped.
Probably due to me not understanding the instructions related to the use of the Terminal.

I'd really appreciate any help I can get on this one and I am terribly sorry if this is an old and resolved issue that I did not manage to find before posting.
Thanks in advance to all.
