Solved: Skype crashing / aborting on Linux

Your Skype Linux is aborting randomly just a few seconds after connecting? (console message: skype: pcm.c:2782: snd_pcm_areas_copy: Zusicherung »src_areas« nicht erfüllt.)

Try this in your terminal:

mkdir ~/.Skype/Logs

it seems like Skype is expecting this directory and crashes when its not there.

This bug is known since at least 2011-04-14 but new Skype owner Microsoft apparently is not in a hurry to fix it.. 🙁

Tested with Skype

Good luck!
