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 :: Skype Crashes When Display Dims?

Apr 13, 2010

I have a recurrent problem happening when the display dims for power saving while I am making a skype call.Most of the times when this happens then the call drops and I am not able to make another one. Whenever I try to make a new call I get a window with "conference call" instead of regular call, but there is no audio and it doesnt work. Chat messages don't go through. When eventually I logout, Skype freezes and I have to kill it. After this I cannot relogin, but keep getting the message "Another Skype instance may exist". The only way I can login is then to delete the directory ~/.Skype/username. I tried with chown -R user:group ~/.Skype All this is very annoying, because I have to reset all the Skype options I customized. Moreover, the last time this happened I also lost my credit (luckily very low...) I am totally stuck and cannot even say if it's a problem with Skype or pulseaudio or power management.

Ubuntu :: PC Crashes Using Skype With C310 Webcam?

Jun 23, 2011

I have found a few threads regarding this issue but none seem to be exactly what I've got or were too old to re-open the thread.

Ubuntu 11.04
Logitech Quickcam
Logitech C310 720HD webcam

Basic: Video call in Skype using the C310 causes the PC to crash at random times during the session. The quickcam seems to be ok, just an awful experience. Thought it might be a pulseaudio problem so did the following:

added autospawn = no to .pulse/client.conf
killall pulseaudio
Restarted Skype
Changed audio settings in Skype to use MB chip ICH5
Restarted pulseaudio -D

No difference (if anything crashes quicker) except the CPU load is halved.

The pc freezes and is unresponsive. lights on keyboard flash.

I have no idea if this is sound or video card related.

Below is a link to a screen shot.

Empathy will start up fine, but if I initiate a conversation (or if someone IMs me) then Empathy will crash. Has anyone else had this problem, or knows how to fix it? If not, is there another comparable IM service that integrates with the memenu as well as Empathy?

Software :: Ubuntu Crashes When Starting VirtualBox?

Jan 6, 2011

If I start my VirtualBox on Ubuntu 11.04 it crashes 50% of the time... The whole system hangs, even the music keeps playing the last 2 seconds over and over... I can't find useful information in the Log File Viewer. I'm using seperate X screens, maybe it has something to do with that?

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 with..so 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.

Software :: Ubuntu 10.10.1 Crashes On Boot Starting NBD Client After Online Update?

Nov 29, 2010

I loaded the Pre-Release version of Ubuntu 10.10.1 32 bit workstation. It ran mostly fine for about a 2 months. Then I did an online update and it told me that I had to reboot. When I did, I booted to a splash screen and then a dead machine with a black screen where control-alt-delete does nothing, no disk activity, no mouse, no keyboard, totally dead. Had to hit reset button. I booted to a suse partition and hacked the grub entry to remove the splash and silent to get more spew at boot time. The last thing before the screen goes black is starting NBD client. I have my email and various directories on my central server so I need NFS. Is there a way I can hack my way to get it to boot even without NFS temporarily to possibly rebuild the nbd kernel module? I have looked at the /var/log/ syslog, daemon, debug, kern messages and gdm log files and don't see any indication of why it crashed. Where else can I look?

Software :: Skype Crashes On Debian / Squeeze AMD64 System - Fix It?

May 18, 2010

Using the howto at http://wiki.debian.org/skype I installed Skype 2.1 beta 2. It launches OK using either skype or linux32 skype and brings up the login screen. It already has my username but when I enter my password skype crashes before logging me in. I get the error:

Inconsistency detected by ld.so: dl-open.c: 643: _dl_open: Assertion `_dl_debug_initialize (0, args.nsid)->r_state == RT_CONSISTENT' failed!

I know this is a long shot since skype isn't open source, but does anyone have a workaround?

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?

Server :: How To Automate Starting A Process In Gnu Screen And Restart It When It Crashes

Sep 10, 2010

I have a java service that needs to be run in a gnu screen session so that I can -r into it to access it's interactive shell. I would like this to run at start-up. More importantly, it crashes frequently so I need the service to restart itself when it crashes. How do I go about doing this myself? My previous experience with shell scripting amounts to putting ./service in a file and marking it executable. This will be running on a FreeBSD server, but I might put it on a Linux server soon also. So any caveats on the differences would be useful information.

Slackware :: KDE4.4.5 Crashes When Starting Language Settings In Systemsettings?

Dec 3, 2010

I am trying to switch to KDE4.4.5 on my main machine. I installed the KDE packages and also the german language file. Everything works fine except the language settings. When I try to start it crash and a KDE crash dialog opens that gives this "developer information":


Application: System Settings (systemsettings), signal: Segmentation fault
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/gdb/auto-load/usr/lib/libgobject-2.0.so.0.2200.5-gdb.py", line 9, in <module>
from gobject import register


It works on my netbook. I run on both machines Slackware 13.1. The only difference I can think of is that KDE was pre-installed on my netbook and I just upgraded it. On my main machine I installed all packages except the packages of kde and kdei.

Ubuntu :: Can't See Incoming Video On Skype / Show That?

Feb 4, 2010

I can not see incoming video on Skype.

Okay, so I have Skype installed, and it has worked fine in the past. I have been able to chat with my girlfriend on it. We can see each other and both talk. I haven't used it in probably 3 or 4 months. I tried to use it last night and for some reason, I could not see her on the video. It would just show up as a white box where the video should be. She could see me, and we could hear each other. I already had her test with somebody else to check if her video output was okay, and it worked just fine.

I read something that Cairo Dock could somehow be affecting it, but I haven't tested this theory. I can't see how the two could be related.

I have a macbook 2.1 and successfully installedubuntu 10.04 with no problems other than the headphone jac doesn't work and the iSight i had to follow instructions to make it work..however, I cannot use it in skype. It works with cheese and ekiga, but most of the people I chat with are on skype. The driver on skype says "built-in iSight (v4l2) whereas the skype says "built-in iSight (/dev/video0) when I go into the gstreamer-properties, for video it is selected as V4L2 and in the pipeline it reads (v4l2src device="/dev/video0")

When I click test it all works fine, its just that skype doesn't work with the camera. shows I have one, I click test in skype settings and the screen stays black and the green light showing its on turns on....and when I'm in a call i try to make it work and it flashes the green light and doesnt work at all... anyone know a solution or haing the same problem?

Ubuntu :: Skype Incoming Video Freezes After 30-60 Seconds?

Jan 6, 2010

My problem is this: the video that I receive during a video call will freeze after about 30 to 60 seconds. Before that, it works fine. And the outgoing video (that which I send to the contact on the other end of the call) is fine throughout.

If my contact resets their video by turning it off and then on again during the call, it will usually work again for a few seconds. Then, as always, it freezes.

So, I am clearly receiving the signal. But maybe I am overloading something? Is this a graphics card problem?

* IBM Lenovo X41 laptop
* Intel Centrino processor
* Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Video With Skype On Microsoft NX-6000 Web Cam / Get That?

Feb 24, 2010

I have just installed 9.10 64bit Karmic Koala on a Sony VAIO VGN-NR110E.
Everything seems to be working fine out of the box...

I have my camera WORKING. I have tested it through VLC and the video is visible. I have installed Skype, and after setting up the source of the mic and video, SOUND works. Microphone from NX-6000 records sound, I can talk to someone on Skype with no problems.

The only issue i have is that in Skype settings, when I click on the TEST button in the VIDEO menu, the camera blinks, but the screen stays black. When I initiate a conversation, and enable my video, all I see is a white box in the corner, and the same thing shows up on the screen of the person I am speaking with. The sound however works flawlessly.

Ubuntu :: Skype And Kdenlive - Test Video Not Working

Aug 14, 2010

I have an issue with Skype video similar to this thread [URL] where the test video doesn't work and I only see a white screen from my own webcam. The receivers can see my video and I can see their video, however. Video from my webcam works fine in Cheese and Guvcview. It seemed to start after I loaded the Compiz-config-settings-manager in an effort to fix video tearing (didn't work). Also Kdenlive now crashes every time I try to run a clip, but it was working great before. Even if I remove CompizConfig I still have the problem.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Use Skype Video Since Upgrade To 2.2

Apr 8, 2011

I'm running 32-bit Ubuntu 10.10 on a Macbook 3,1 and using my computer's built in iSight. Up until recently, before making the switch to Skype Beta 2.2, I was having no problems using Skype's video chat feature. However, now I am only able to get video working if I open a terminal window and type in:

"LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype"

Does anyone know of a way to get Skype functioning normally again? The launchers from my menu/panel no longer load the Skype that can use video, and when I tried to change the launch command to what what I use in terminal, it keeps telling me that "there was an error creating the child process for this terminal."
