A while ago, I was using Skype (beta 184.108.40.206, 64 bit, running on Linux Mint) and tried to send a file to the other person. The act of clicking Send File however caused the entire Skype program to crash.
I did a bit of hunting but didn’t find any resolution to the problem. I did find rumours that the problem may lie in a bug in Ubuntu (upon which Mint is based). However I did find a way of preventing the crash. It is probably the simplest fix I have ever found.
I simply changed the Style.
As I said – the simplest fix ever.
