Skype cant connect

10.04 – 11.10 at 64-bit

  3. Using the terminal, enter the following command and press Enter:

  4. Download the Debian file:

The above link is missing, try this: and find out your package, for instance libphonon4_4.6.2-0ubuntu5.6_i386.deb

Open the Debian file with the Archive Manager, then click on data.tar.lzma and unpack the following library into the Skype folder you created in step 2:

./usr/lib/ ./usr/lib/ ./usr/lib/

You can now run Skype using the command

 LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/user/skype-4.1/:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH /home/user/skype-4.1/skype

where “user” needs to be replaced with your Linux username and “skype-4.1” needs to be replaced with the name of the Skype folder you created in step 2. For instance:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/jblanco/skype-$LD_LIBRARY_PATH /home/jblanco/skype-
