    Skype Echo123 test call fails.

    If I go to Options>Sound Devices Make a Test call, it starts to make a test call and then quickly comes up with "Call Fails"

    At this point this is not a sound problem, as microphone, headphones seem to be working fine.

    I can call 1800 stardard numbers and they seem to be ringing and answering, I've yet to bug any of my Skype friends by calling them.

    The otherthing I notice is that the icons on my list of Skype friends do not turn green, they all remain greyed out, even when I know some of them are online from my windows machine. Skype works on windows on the same lan, so this leads me to thing something needs be tweaked with Skype or Ubuntu/linux setup to make the test call work.

    Re: Skype Echo123 test call fails.

    I've now managed to test this situation with a Contact.

    * The contact shows me as being offline, I see them as offline.
    * They can send chat message to me, I can't send chat message to them.
    * My call to a skype contact as well as skype test call both
    return 'call failed'

    * I can though call regular phones.

    Is this related to my Skype linux incoming port?

    Any clues appreciated

    I found elsewhere in the forums this idea...

    "rm -rf ~/.Skype" then restart

    I actually did this via nautilus using ctrl+h to
    see the hidden .Skype directory. I renamed it to
    error on the side of caution .SkypeWot and restarted
    Skype.

    Oops forgot to say this resovled the test call 'call fail' problem

    via nautilus using ctrl+h to
    see the hidden /home/username/.Skype directory. I renamed it to
    error on the side of caution .SkypeWot and restarted Skype.

    anyhow test call and skype contacts are now on.

    THANKS!! That fixed my problem. No mention of it on the Skype 'support' site...

    I think I saw 'skype' and 'support' in the same sentence
