I don't know what you're moving it from .. or how you're "moving" it ?

I'm going to assume you're moving the hidden ~/.Skype directory from another distro ?

if that's the case, your other distro probably had pulseaudio installed .. so install pulseaudio in Peppermint:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install pulseaudio pulseaudio-utils pavucontrol
now see if audio works in Skype.

Hello,  I was using a dual boot with windows7 + P4, skype being on windows.
Reinstalled P4 only, The trouble was with the Skype sound. However your code has been effective and the sound test is good.

Thank you very much
from a  devoted Peppermint fan
