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.
