    Desktop went blank after trying to install Skype

    My desktop also went blank after I tried to install skype.

    I have no idea what my desktop is called. I'm using Saucy Salamander.

    Here's what caused the problem:
    sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner"
    sudo apt-get install skype
    (I got weird errors in the terminal)

    So, if someone knows how to restore my desktop and get skype working, that would be great.

    I only found you'd done this when I did ANOTHER search for skype problems!!
    Any help would still be appreciated.
