    Skype not logging in

    Hello all,

    I have looked deeply into the Internet, and I believe no one is having the same problem that I am having, so please help.

    I downloaded Skype, from the skype site and for 64 bit Ubuntu. It installed without a problem. I have never been able to log-in however. It always tells me:

    Sign in failed

    No such Skype Name

    I know my username and password are both correct, because I use them in my windows machine and to log on to the skype site without a problem. I honestly have no idea where to start.

    I have reinstalled skype, and attempted the log in several times to no avail.

    My system is 10.04 64bit
    Computer specs in my signature

    Thanks for the help.

    I have no idea what might be causing your problem. Skype login works fine for me on 10.04 64-bit, so it's not a bug in the software.

    Not something silly like the Skype login name being case sensitive?

    I was going to feel very stupid if that was it.
    Fortunately(or unfortunately) not.

    It still doesn't work.

    An update to the problem however.
    After trying wrong passwords, the error has changed to:

    Sign in failed

    Incorrect Password


    It still does not accept the correct password.

    Re: Skype not logging in

    This is extremely lame.

    I tried a few minutes ago and it worked.

    I sure hope that it was just the updates that I did today for ubuntu, because I haven't changed anything else.

    Thanks to those that tried to help.

    Happy ubunting, and for me happy skyping...
