Re: Skype refuses to connect

Fitzcarraldo, "APPARENTLY" so. It worked fine yesterday night via WiFi at home. I just reemerged Skype with a bunch of libs Sulfur suggested and Skype worked fine then. When I came to office today morning, I plugged in my 3G modem and the problem came back (or was just still here, because I reporte...

Re: Skype refuses to connect

ReemZ , do you have the ~/.Skype/Logs directory? If not, create it manually: $ mkdir ~/.Skype/Logs and try to launch Skype from Konsole/Terminal. Dear friend, I did it. Still doesn't work. Same behavior. I've noticed that I can't even access Skype configurations when I run it as a normal user. Thin...

Re: Skype refuses to connect

Fitzcarraldo, if I try launching skype from command line just as "skype", the command console got stuck. So, I tried "skype &", it launches but it's not able to connect. Or even die, that "stupid program" :lol: Launching "sudo skype &" works as related before. Of course, it uses ~root/.Skype directo...

Re: Skype refuses to connect

Following Fitzcarraldo tip about a possible permission failure (because "sudo skype" works and normal "skype" does not), I tried: [email protected] ~ $ ls -l /opt/skype total 20872 drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jan 26 23:51 avatars drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jan 26 23:51 lang -rwxr-xr-x 1 root aud...

Re: Skype refuses to connect

Hi, ReemZ! Tks for the tips, too! Now for the (not so good...) news: I just found Skype didn't connect if I'm on 3G... :?: Everything else appears to be OK but this: browsers and Internet access works, sound is OK, everything else is OK, but Skype won't connect. It was not possible, too, quit Skype ...
