How to get Skype running on Ubuntu 13.10

I got Skype running on Ubuntu 13.10 using the following commands:

[code lang=”bash”]
sudo -s
mv /usr/bin/skype /usr/bin/skype-bin
emacs /usr/bin/skype
[/code]

Filling the file with the following content:

[code lang=”bash”]
#!/bin/sh
export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa/libGL.so.1
exec skype-bin
[/code]

Don’t forget to change the file mode:
[code lang=”bash”]
chmod 0755 /usr/bin/skype
[/code]
