@alium: updated to latest skype gain. Deleted .config in /home/_skype

Devices are detected ok now however actual call audio doesn't work (incoming). My microphone works but I can't hear the other side. Oddly tho I can hear "system" sounds like an incoming call alert or if I call out the ringing sound. But as soon as the call is started no incoming audio (other side does hear me).

If I use skype directly everything works ok.

@Almindor: still all works for me, sorry

try delete all in /home_skype and run sskype again

@alium: I'm o 8.15.04 and it still does not detect the microphone via sskype. Works ok on it's own. The _skype user is in groups: video audio _skype

But what does it do? What is its purpose?

alium commented on 2018-02-13 16:06

@Utini: yes, the package is actually and works very well with newest stable version of Skype (tested, i use Skype with skype-secure)

Utini commented on 2018-02-13 15:50

Since the archwiki link doesn't work anymore: What does this pacacke actually do?

alium commented on 2018-02-04 17:15

@almindor: skypeforlinux-stable-bin version works normally, withouts problems, audio device detect normally and tested call was OK.

Please try delete skype profil and run sskype again.

Does not recognize audio devices anymore if run via secure skype script. Works without it. Also oddly enough it does see the camera (which also is the microphone but that part is not detected)

@nesk_aur: Skype for Linux (skypeforlinux-bin package) use pulseaudio, see

nesk_aur commented on 2018-01-08 18:37

Does this requires pulseaudio to be running?
