The skype.desktop files are not meant for you to run. To invoke skype you should be able to simply type skype in your terminal or run it via the full path here: $ /usr/bin/skype Files that end in a .desktop are configuration files for your desktop, not for you to execute directly.

Spoof to 4.3.0.37 version by exiting Skype and running the relevant command: 4.2.0.13 --> 4.3.0.37 Spoof (Tested Working) sudo sed -i "s/\x34\x2E\x32\x2E\x30\x2E\x31\x33/\x34\x2E\x33\x2E\x30\x2E\x33\x37/g" /usr/bin/skype 2.2.0.25 -> 4.3.0.37 Spoof (Not Tested) sudo sed -i "s/\x32\x2E\x32\x2E\x30\x2E\x32\x35/\x34\x2E\x33\x2E\x30\x2E\x33\x37/g" ...

I experienced this problem myself a few days ago (3rd August 2014) and had to upgrade. My upgrade was from 2.2.0.35-1 to 4.3.0.37-1 (Debian 7.6 wheezy). Upgrading fixed the issue. Also, I had been having ...
