Yesterday I wanted to chat with my friend in Skype but I didn’t have Skype in my Ubuntu OS. Didn’t feel like going back to Vista just for Skype.
Finally went ahead and downloaded the Skype Set-up for Ubuntu which is for Ubuntu 7.04 – 8.04 and installed it on my Ubuntu 8.10.
When I initiated the voice call, I was getting an error message “Audio Error”. I was tired and searching for a solution. Finally come across the solution for the problem from YANNB.
It seems pulseaudio is somehow responsible for this bad behaviour. To bring back everything to the normal situation:
sudo apt-get remove pulseaudio
sudo apt-get install pulseaudio ubuntu-desktop
Execute the above command in terminal, and get rid of the program that causes the problem.
After executing above command, I’m able to do voice and video chat on my Ubuntu 8.10.
