Skype video and linux

I’m running debian 8 (Jessie).

My skype video and screen share worked fine. For a few weeks both are not working.

Here is how to fix the issue:

  1. stop skype
  2. rm ~/.Skype -r
  3. rm ~/.config/Skype -r
  4. Start skype

Note that .config/Skype maybe KDE specific.

 

Your saved login will be lost.

You will lost chat logs.
