I have already done “pacman -Su”, because whenever you post a question on an ArchLinux forum, someone always tells you to do a “pacman -Su”. (I hate doing it, because I always have to rebuild the ZFS modules whenever the kernel changes.) So now you can answer the question without first telling me to do a “pacman -Su”.
I’ve installed skypeforlinux, and whenever I try to make an outgoing call – even the Skype Testing Call – the call does not take place, and Skype logs me out. To anticipate a likely response (just as I anticipated that someone was going to tell me to run “pacman -Su”) – yes, I have tested the audio and video devices, they’re fine. At least, they’re fine as far as the Settings window is able to determine. But whenever I try to make an outgoing call, the next thing I know is that the large post-login window has been replaced by the small pre-login window, and I am being asked for my name and password again. Hopefully this is a known problem and I will not be asked for additional information, because there is little additional information I can give you.
Thank you in advance for any and all replies.
