Yet Another Way to Make Skype Run Under Ubuntu 13.04

I have previously written these two articles on how to fix  the seg fault error of Skype on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail:

In this article I will show you a third way to make Skype work properly on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail.

Open the /etc/ file, in your favourite text editor, as root:

$ gksudo gedit /etc/

Paste the following line:


Run ldconfig:

$ sudo ldconfig -v

This is it. Enjoy.

    On my side nvidia proprietary installer removes (or moves) “/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/mesa/”. Therefore preloading this lib fails. Forcing libgl1-mesa-glx reinstallation recreates “/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/mesa/”. Skype works. But nvidia driver conflicts with libgl1-mesa-glx. So no clean solution found.
