Subject: [gentoo-user] skype again
Date: Tue, 19 Jun 2007 14:47:39
1 Right I've got skype installed and working, sort of.
2 If I launch it from the start menu it asks me for my password, which I enter,
3 It then say "database error" and refuses to logon.
4 I've contacted skype, they suggested the following:
5 We suggest you delete ~/.Skype/shared.xml and ~/.Skype/skypename/config.xml
6 directories.  You have to kill the process with Skype and restart your
7 computer as well.
8 It didn't work.
9 I can launch and use skype from the command line as root, which suggests it
10 might be a permissions issue. But the question is where, I've looked at the
11 group file and I cant see any obvious groups which my user needs to be a
12 member of.
13 Any suggestions, as always, greatly appreciated
14 Matt
