Skype on amd64 debian testing

Postby larry77 » 2009-11-08 14:37

Dear All,
I am trying to install skype on my system.
I am going nuts since I tried out a few things (see http://www.skype.com/intl/en/download/s ... ux/choose/ ) ranging from debian lenny .deb (installed forcing the architecture since my system is 64 bit) to static package to Ubuntu 64 bit (installed without any complain on my system).
Now, the problem is always the same: when I start skype this is what I get

$ skype
skype: error while loading shared libraries: libQtDBus.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

but the library is there! See
$ sudo apt-file search libQtDBus.so.4
ia32-libs-gtk: /usr/lib32/libQtDBus.so.4
ia32-libs-gtk: /usr/lib32/libQtDBus.so.4.5
ia32-libs-gtk: /usr/lib32/libQtDBus.so.4.5.2
libqt4-dbg: /usr/lib/libQtDBus.so.4.5.3.debug
libqt4-dbus: /usr/lib/libQtDBus.so.4
libqt4-dbus: /usr/lib/libQtDBus.so.4.5
libqt4-dbus: /usr/lib/libQtDBus.so.4.5.

By googling, this is what I found

http://www.mail-archive.com/debian-qt-k ... 21696.html

but it ends up with a bug report being filed. Can anyone help me out here?
Many thanks

apt-file indicates that it was installed but why not look to see if the file is really there?
Code: Select all
ls -l /usr/lib32/libQtDBus.so.4
or see which libraries the executable can not find with
Code: Select all
ldd /usr/bin/skype


/usr/lib32/libQtDBus.so.4 is almost certainly a link to some sub version of the library that is generated by ldconfig.

Hi,
And thanks for helping.
Here is the output of the commands you suggested

$ ls -l /usr/lib32/libQtDBus.so.4
ls: cannot access /usr/lib32/libQtDBus.so.4: No such file or directory

$ ldd /usr/bin/skype

libXss.so.1 => /usr/lib32/libXss.so.1 (0xf7e3f000)
librt.so.1 => /lib32/librt.so.1 (0xf7e36000)
libQtDBus.so.4 => not found

libXdmcp.so.6 => /usr/lib32/libXdmcp.so.6 (0xf7a44000)

Indeed it seems that libQtDBus is missing. Where do I fetch it?
Cheers

First run
Code: Select all
ls -l /usr/lib32/libQtDBus.so.4*
to see if the actual file that the link should point to is there. That would be something like /usr/lib32/libQtDBus.so.4.5.2. If it is there then run
Code: Select all
ldconfig -v
as root to generate the link. If it is not there then
Code: Select all
aptitude reinstall ia32-libs-gtk
should get it and it should run ldconfig as part of the installation.

Hi,
That is what I did. Now skype starts, but when I try to login this is what happens

$ skype
Inconsistency detected by ld.so: dl-open.c: 643: _dl_open: Assertion `_dl_debug_initialize (0, args.nsid)->r_state == RT_CONSISTENT' failed!
lorenzo@butterfly:~$ skype
Inconsistency detected by ld.so: dl-open.c: 643: _dl_open: Assertion `_dl_debug_initialize (0, args.nsid)->r_state == RT_CONSISTENT' failed!

and then it crashes....

Thanks! I resorted to another version of skype:

$ sudo dpkg -i skype-debian_2.0.0.72-1_i386.deb

the graphics is a bit ugly, but at least it seems to work.
Cheers

Likewise 64 bit testing. From your post I gather that you were trying to get the latest version (2.1.0.47) working. You got further then me - it wouldn't even run for me; bouncing cursor for a short while, then nuthin'. Yet 2.0.0.72 works perfectly. I only use the static version, so that was all I tested with the latest version.

Still, the site does say 2.1.0.47 is beta.

With greetings

I have installed beta version but I can not logging.
May you tell me where you could get this version? because I could not find that version, and on skype site I found onlye beta version 2.1.XX.

Thanks in advance
