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? can. Complete and thorough.

Aha! That's the one. :) Many thanks.

The line that solved it here was

su -c 'zypper install libasound2-32bit xorg-x11-libXv-32bit
xorg-x11-libs-32bit libqt4-x11-32bit libpng12-0-32bit'
