Last night I updated my openSuse distribution from 12.3 to 13.1.4 .
So far so good , everything worked perfect except skype .
I checked and I found several posts about pulse audio , so I did as it says here https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Skype , step by step .
But nothing yet . Despite I see the “Welcome” window for skype , it then dissapears . I don’t know if it’s just me or someone else ,and I also don’t know how to fix it … Any suggestions about what might be wrong ?
Actually I had the same problem. I followed the instructions in the link mentioned by you and the sound quality was very poor. Therefore I removed Skype and all the previously installed files (pulse audio etc.) and after that I reinstalled only Skype and nothing more. I went to Skype Options -> Audio Devices and tested some different settings. This worked out for me.
