skypeforlinux-8.13.0.2 does not work for me - signup blue screen appears, and then goes all white (with menubar on top). skypeforlinux-8.11.0.4 works ok. what is your experience ?

I am with kde-plasma, so all gnome-keyring dependencies had to be emerged, and there is a chance may be misconfigured, but what else can I look at ?

The latest stable version of Skype Preview for Linux ( Version 8.13.0.2 ) is running well in Lubuntu 17.10 (LXDE) on my family's tower PC with external USB Webcam with built-in microphone.

The latest unstable version of Skype Preview for Linux ( Version 8.13.76.8 ) is running well in Gentoo amd64 arch and KDE on my Clevo W230SS laptop with internal Webcam and microphone.

Have you tried Version 8.13.76.8? I use the ebuild from the Rion overlay.

(The Microsoft repository for the unstable version is https://repo.skype.com/rpm/unstable/ and the Microsoft repository for the stable version is https://repo.skype.com/rpm/stable/).

Thanks, I was just trying what Gentoo portage make available. I'll play 8.13.76.8 out of tree, while keeping 8.11 for now.

Alas, 8.13.76.8 did not work for me as well :( The difference with 8.13.0.2 is that after blue login and white screen, it goes back to blue, get white again,
does it 4 times and then quits. Something with my KDE perhaps

skypeforlinux-8.13.0.2 works for me, but can't see my video camera. Previous versions did, and mplayer does.

I did manage to get it run past login screen on other two machines I have, but there it follows bug https://bugs.gentoo.org/644296 failing to detect speakers and microphone, but detecting camera on my pure ALSA setup (no pulseaudio)
