Please don't post here (or on any other AUR packages) about out of date versions. Use the "Flag package out-of-date" link at the top. Also, BEFORE flagging this package out of date please check that it has not already been updated here to the new version.

Note that AUR package skypeforlinux-stable-bin is the version Microsoft release as their "stable" version. AUR package skypeforlinux-preview-bin is the version Microsoft release as their preview version and is always a later version than the stable version. PLEASE DO NOT FLAG THE STABLE VERSION OUT OF DATE WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING THIS!

@gustavi, I have reverted the patch now that glibc 2.28-4 is released. Update your system and this package.

I'm also getting this error on up to date Arch.

/usr/share/skypeforlinux/glibc/usr/lib/ version `GLIBC_2.28' not found (required by /usr/lib/

@kristianjgs, the latest package works for me also. What distro are you running and is your system up to date?

Works great here with up to date Arch.

/usr/share/skypeforlinux/skypeforlinux: /usr/share/skypeforlinux/glibc/usr/lib/ version `GLIBC_2.28' not found (required by /usr/lib/

glibc 2.28-2 (currently in testing) seems to resolve the glibc issue. I am able to run skypeforlinux without its own glibc 2.27.

@Eschwartz, I took the stable and preview skype packages up after they were disowned and pretty much kept the original PKGBUILD. If I run this with the system rather than embedded electron then my video camera does not work so that is an example of the kind of bug likely if we don't go with package as created by the upstream skype devs. BTW, if you would like to discuss this further then please create a bug or forum post as dialog here is comparatively awkward.

Eschwartz commented on 2018-08-08 20:48

Have you considered, instead, fixing a longstanding mistake and using the system electron via a simple launcher script running electron /usr/lib/skypeforlinux/ (and installing, from data.tar.xz, the directory ./usr/share/skypeforlinux/resources/app.asar.unpacked/)?

Also, this upstream .deb violates both Debian and Arch packaging guidelines, because it installs arch-dependent binaries to /usr/share instead of /usr/lib -- and also because prebuilt standalone electron garbage belongs in /opt

Just because no one at Microsoft knows how to package doesn't mean you should blindly do everything they do.

Thank you bulletmark. It's great!
