Having recently upgraded to openSUSE 12.1, I'm trying to re-install
Skype for Linux YaST installs the rpm OK, but
when I try to run skype it grumbles about missing libraries.

Googling found a recommendation to install xorg-x11-libXv-32bit which
I've done, but now skype throws its next complaint:

skype: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open
shared object file: No such file or directory

There seem to be various dbus rpms in the standard repositories, but
none with that name. Has anyone trodden this before, who could advise me?


I remember having this issue on 11.4 when i went to 64bit. I can't remember
the solution other than searching out the missing libraries via google and
finding a forum entry that gave a solution, it did take a while to find.
