Ubuntu :: No Sound After Starting Skype?

Jan 3, 2010

Whenever I start up Skype, the entire sound goes on my PC. Even when I shut Skype down, I still don't have it. The only way I get it back is to reboot the computer. Is there a setting I need to change?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype Crash When Starting Full Screen Sharing?

Feb 27, 2010

i just found out (late i know) that the knew skype beta 2 now comes with the awesome screen-sharing feature that skype for mac and skype for win comes i uninstalled the old skype and installed the new beta version with lightning quickness to try that out.. (and show off my compiz effects to all my friends lol!!)anyway, it seems to only work halfway for me. sharing the FULL screen will cause my skype app to crash and close instantly. but sharing a screen selection works just fine... even though i can't resize the screen selecting area.. but it's not that big a deal for me.

Debian Multimedia :: Skype Starting Every Time When Open Interactive Root Shell

Jan 20, 2015

I recently "upgraded" to the latest skype and now every time I open an interactive root shell, up pops skype. I can close skype then control-C in the terminal window to get the shell I want, but this is annoying to say the least. Maybe my google-foo is off, but all I can find is articles on how to run skype as root, which is no use. I've tried searching the startup files for "skype" (case independant), but so far all I can find is "LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/bin/skype" in the root .bashrc which shouldn't be starting the app.

what could be causing this?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 Insists In Starting X - Stopped With Message On Tty1 "Starting YaST2"

Jul 18, 2011

I installed OS11.4 on my old laptop, Compaq Armada E500., 512MB RAM, ATI Rage Mobility. During installation I chose "minimal server" and added some development packages, lxde and a little more. I chose to start in runlevel 3 which is full networking without X. Still, when computer is booted it tries to start Xorg which doesn't work because of some problem w driver. The start-up seems to stop there, it never loads completely - seems most things in runlevel 3 are not started (see below) I can manually login on laptop and fix it - but never permanently, same thing again after reboot.

I have checked /etc/inittab & yast - both states default runlevel is 3. I have checked services to be started both directly, browsing directory /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/, and with YaST, it is very clear X should not load during boot. But, as said, it does.. I don't really care about the driver problem right now, I can fix that later when I have more time. So how do I stop X from getting started automatically?

More info, if needed: The installation also stopped with message on tty1 "Starting YaST2" and tty8 showing errors with graphics driver (mach64). The system seemed to be installed though, so I simply rebooted (issuing "reboot" from tty2).


I'm not completely sure where it stops, network is configured but keyboard is wrong and mysql & everything after is not started, so somewhere between S02network and S06kbd. I'm going to use it as a server for testing purposes so no X is actually needed - however I do want to have X & lxde installed just in case, my Internet connection at home is terribly slow so I need most things I might need in the future installed today.

OpenSUSE Network :: Skype 2.2 On OpenSUSE 11.4 Mic And Video Not Working / Get That?

Aug 28, 2011

I have a fresh install of openSUSE 11.4 with KDE. This includes ALSA and Pulseaudio.

I have a mic and speakers and a webcam. As far as I can see microphone and sound reproduction work, the webcam also works:
- I can arecord and aplay
- KMix works
- amixer and alsamixer work (I am using microphone boost)
- test sounds play
- the webcam works in "Personal Settings (Configure Desktop)": Hardware > Multimedia > Phonon (test camera)
- Pidgin and Empathy work with sound and video.
(had to set this: gconftool-2 --set --type=string /system/gstreamer/0.10/default/audiosrc pulsesrc,
without this setting it was set to alsasrc by default and Pidgin and Empathy didn't work).

I installed Skype 2.2 (also tried 2.1) and tested the video camera in Skype. Result: doesn't work.
I made a test call: I hear the voice of the lady answering the call, but my own voice is not recorded.
In Skype everything is set to use Pulseaudio.

I am at a total loss to understand what is going wrong here. Why does Skype not work, when everything else does??

I made this observation:
When an application records something, a "Capture stream" shows up in the KMix "Capture Streams" tab. For example, when I use arecord, "ALSA capture" shows up, while I record. When I make a call on Empathy, a capture stream shows up in the said tab.

When I make a Skype call, NO capture stream shows up, so obviously Skype is not capturing anything.

Ubuntu :: Bluetooth And Skype \ Make A Call Using These Headphones With Skype, Can Speak For Say 10 Seconds And Then The Headset Disconnects Completely From The System?

Aug 12, 2010

I recently bought a IOgear USB bluetooth adapter and a Sony DRBT101/BLK bluetooth headphones to use with my computer.Whenever I try to make a call using these headphones with skype, I can speak for say 10 seconds and then the headset disconnects completely from the system. I then have to reconnect the headset by switching it off and on. I do not have this problem listening to music using A2DP. It works fine with my mobile phone.When I change the profile to Telephony Duplex (HSP/HFP), it shows up as hands free, I thought it should be headset in blueman manager. My friend uses Plantronics headset with is Dell laptop with built in bluetooth and he says his comes up as headset not hands free. Could this be causing the problem?

OpenSUSE :: Using Skype As An IM Client ?

Jun 6, 2010

Anyone using Skype as an IM client? I only use very basic functionality in IM, and I like Skype's interface, but can't find any info how to set it up, import contacts etc.. I got my copy from skype website, installed fine and easy...I am using kopete atm, don't like it. I have used pidgin before, didn't like that (I am a KDE user) either. On windows I have used Trillian, liked previous versions, but they keep upgrading and making it "better" or as I think, "worse"

OpenSUSE :: Segmentation Fault In Skype?

May 5, 2010

Some time ago I had to reinstall all my packages under 64-bit OpenSuse 11.2. After that I can't get Skype working - Skype always gives me "segmentation fault" when trying to execute it (from command-line).

I've followed steps recommended in wiki, I've tried different versions (32-bit as well as 64-bit RPMs) downloaded from different repositories (including old 1.4.0.xx). Nothing changes anything.

I don't have any webcam and I've never had one, so I guess it cannot be related to that.

OpenSUSE :: Use Skype With A Mixer Like Dmix?

May 29, 2010

i've just created a new .asoundrc which uses dmix. So i can use it in KDEs systemsettings. And all Programs can use the sound devices at the same time. The only Program who makes trouble is skype. If i hear music or watch tv and an skype systemsound comes, i must restart the Soundtrack. Now i have seen that skype uses ALSA. But if i set the default settings, skype would like to have exclusivly access for the sounddevices. Exists any way, to use skype with a mixer like dmix, so all applications have collaborative access to the sound devices.
