I have "succesfully" installed skypeforlinux 18.104.22.168 on my machine running Debian 8 (Jessie) using the instructions provided here. An icon appears in the menu, and when I click that icon six skypeforlinux processes start, but no window is showing. The icon appears on the taskbar for a while, but then disappears. If I try to start Skype from the terminal by giving the command
skypeforlinux, again six skypeforlinux processes start, but again no window is showing. Any ideas about what might be the trouble here?
I am aware that there have been previous questions asked on this site about installing Skype on Debian Jessie (e.g. this question), but they do not address the issue that I have with my installation.
