Ubuntu – Problems after installing Skype 4.3


just installed Skype 4.3 on my laptop (Dell Inspiron N5110) running Ubuntu 14.10 following all the instructions from every possible source but when I try to launch it absolutely nothing happens.

What can I do to get it working? Here's what I get:

andi@Andi:~$ skype
skype: error while loading shared libraries: libGL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Best Answer

Open a terminal window and try to start Skype with this command (copy and paste):

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa/libGL.so.1 skype

If that's successful, I suggest that you check out this answer to get a persistent solution.
