Skype, Chromium are not starting anymore.
« dnia: Sierpień 19, 2014, 21:08:44 pm »
I have unofficial Linux Mint LXDE 13.1 installed on one old box with Athlon 2400+, 1999 MHz, 1500 (3x512) Mb RAM, 80 Gb IDE HDD.
There are 3 users, I am admin. Some time ago - maybe two weeks ago I made system update as update manager showed, that updates are available. After that other users complained me about Skype - it's not even starting, no messages, no other activities.
I tried to start it from terminal - it showed me:
dais@dais-KT333 ~ $ skype
Aborted
dais@dais-KT333 ~ $
I tried to purge skype, reinstall it again, but no success. I tried to find older version like skype 4.2, but it is impossible to find it anymore.
Same sh... thing I have with Chromium browser. Could someone help me with getting those working?

Hi Dais,

Unfortunetly new Skype needs pulseaudio for working. I'm not sure that this version contains necessery packages for this.
Execute following:
sudo apt-get install pulseaudio pulseaudio-utils
Greetings

Thank you for advise, I just tried it. All things went well with installation, but there is no success with starting skype, even after rebooting. Completely the same picture in terminal. Aborted. There should be something else. Maybe it has to be initiated somehow? Or configured?

Also, I have an old notebook with unofficial linux mint lxde 13.1 non-pae edition. There worked complete removing an old skype, and then installing new one 4.3 from official skype website *.deb package for precise ubuntu. But this kind of trick is not working on desktop machine with linux mint lxde 13.1 pae edition. Is it a usefull information?

Sorry for late post, but still...
Now I have 2 desktops with mint lxde 13.2, I just bought another, newer computer for my wife instead of Athlon 2400+. All is good there.
