I have just set up my daughters pc using PCLos XFCE and my granddaughter asked me to install Skype.
I downloaded and installed from the repo and had the same problems as reported in other posts, ie. Start Skype, it logs her in and then disappears.
I then opened a terminal and tried by typing skype. Again Skype opened and immediately closed. The only message in the terminal was Aborted.
I followed the advice of a poster and created a Logs folder in the home folder. This made no difference.
I then followed the advice of another poster and created a file skype.sh containing the following lines:
I made this executable and ran the script.
I received a message Line2: 10944 aborted
I ran the script a further 3 times and received the same message except that the number changd.
11374, 11986, 12052
Can anyone help ?
