PostPosted: Tue Nov 28, 2017 9:42 pm    Post subject: skypeforlinux crashing after sign in Reply with quote

I tried versions: 8.11.04 , 8.11.76.8 , 8.12.76.2, and all of them have the same issue.

It starts, it lets me sign in and crashes just after that.

Sadly there is no error to be seen anywhere because when you try to run it from a terminal it returns immediately without output.
Other linux users have same issue on the microsoft thread, but no solution...

I have seen it works for other gentoo users, I'm suspecting there is some dependency that I'm missing or maybe an use flag on some dependency. I even reemerged all the dependencies that were in the ebuilds, but nothing helps.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Skype4linux-8.11.0.4 works fine for me, here's my dependency tree, maybe that will help you find you're missing dependency:

[ net-im/skypeforlinux-8.11.0.4 stats: packages (35), max depth (1) ]

Also are you using the version from the gentoo repo, because 8.11.0.4 is the only one currently available, and when you say that you tried other versions it sounds like you might be downloading the application directly from skype's website. Which should theoretically work as well, however it makes getting the dependencies right a little trickier.

[EDIT]Nevermind, just read in the signature of you're post that you're running fluxbox (this probably won't work in fluxbox). I'll just leave this here for any future readers
Also if you can't get this to work you might want to look into KDE's built in IM client (if you're running KDE), I believe it's in kde-apps/plasma-telepathy-meta or something like that (I can't find which package exactly provides this). Anyways it's a nice little IM client that sits in your taskbar, and allows you to see who's online and send/recieve IM's, nothing fancy, for calls, sending files, etc you'll need the official skype4linux.

I believe there was also some other IM client (pidgin maybe) that supports basic skype functionality as well.

Or you could just try: https://web.skype.com (IDK why this does not want to turn into a nice clickable link) [Moderator edit: made the hostname a link by assuming it is served over https://. Hostnames without a protocol cannot be a link, because the reader cannot know whether to access over http, https, or some exotic protocol. -Hu]

Hope this helps you,

cst,

The latest version is 8.12.76.7, so try that just in case. You can find the ebuild in the Rion overlay.

Thanks for responses!


@AndrewAmmerlaan
I compared my deps with yours and they are basically the same apart from you are using unstable nss and nspr.
The versions of skype that I tried were from overlays.
I also tried a different skype account that does not have so many chats as my main one, same issue.
Currently I need to use the web version.

@Fitzcarraldo
Tried it, same issue.

Just a wild guess, but have you tried removing skype related files from your $HOME, a quick glance at my $HOME shows
Code:
~/.Skype
~/.skypecallrecorder.rc
~/.config/Skype
~/.config/skypeforlinux (this one is probably obsolete after the recent changes to skype)

Maybe (re)moving those folders will trigger skype to regenerate new fresh configs, which might just fix whatever is broken.

Yes I tried that, does not help.
Looks like this is the one

, the other ones you mentioned were for old Skype.

Do you have gnome-base/gnome-keyring installed? I am using KDE but still have to have gnome-keyring installed in order to use Skype Preview for Linux.

On December 5, 2017 JonasSkype of Microsoft wrote:
The keychain access should require only libsecret, but apparently it seems like it still requires gnome-keyring on some distributions. There is a bug reported for it here: https://github.com/atom/node-keytar/issues/74

We will at least add it to the Known Issues for future reference for now.

Kind regards,

JonasT

Certainly looks like a candidate:

On December 13, 2017 JonasSkype of Microsoft wrote:
As mentioned by 0xc0:ff:ee, we have seen reports about the STARTUP_LOAD_ERROR happening on KDE, where gnome-keyring was not installed. If it is your case and you try installing it, can you please confirm if the error disappeared?

In the upcoming versions, we will at least fail over to the login when this happens. We are also watching the issue reported here: https://github.com/atom/node-keytar/issues/74

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Kind regards,

JonasT

I have gnome-keyring, but Im wondering if it works correctly because it does not save my password in mysql-workbench for example,
I am wondering is it because I do not need any desktop login manager, (I just use startx)
I need to check it out more, thanks for the tip.
