    If you are using GRUB in the 13.10 install to start the machine it should not be necessary to run "grub-install" to get the new kernel; the installation process calls "update-grub", which will add...

    More to the point, how do you find the "origin" of a package using the Origin" button in Synaptic?

    After checking, I find that skype worked on 13.10 BEFORE the upgrade on May 15th that introduced linux-image-3.9.0-2-generic, and didn't work after.
