Fixing skype on Ubuntu 16.04

Posted on Leave a comment

For some weird reason my skype doesn’t open normally within Ubuntu 16.04 since it miss a required library, throwing on my face the error below: $ skype skype: error while loading shared libraries: libGL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory For a final solution, do: Edit the file /etc/ld.so.conf.d/i386-linux-gnu.conf, as root: $ sudo gedit /etc/ld.so.conf.d/i386-linux-gnu.conf Add the following line to this file, save and close it: /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa/ Then, to finish it, update your systems libraries, as root: $ sudo ldconfig And that’s it, your skype should open without hassle now.

Thoughts after a whole day using Leap 42.1

Unfortunately, Plasma 5 is really broken, the desktop environment is so unstable that I’ve missed the panel, the krunner and/or, kwin multiple times. Working with two displays (multihead) was kind […]
