Get The Sound Working In Skype With Ubuntu 13.10 64bit

Postby Gilgamesh777 » Mon Dec 02, 2013 9:56 pm

To fix the Skype no sound / distorted sound issue in Ubuntu 13.10, run the following command:

Code: Select all
sudo sed -i 's/^Exec=.*/Exec=env PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=30 skype %U/' /usr/share/applications/skype.desktop

The command above replaces "skype" from the Skype desktop file with "env PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=30 skype", this being a work-around for getting Skype to work with PulseAudio 4.0.


2- On Cinnamon+ Mate,LXDE,XFCE and kde, add skype icon to desktop (You can add icons to desktop by going to the menu, rightclick on skype then click on add to desktop ) , rightclick on it and go to "Properties" then replace
Code: Select all
skype U%

Code: Select all

in the command field.

So it looks like this: Image

Use the same command if you want to add skype to startup applications.

That's it guys :D
