Skype not working on 64bit OpenSUSE

Symptoms are:

  • no sound at all, neither at startup, nor in calls, test calls, anything
  • all devices in Options > Sound Devices show “virtual device”

This is easy, you need to install a package and restart Skype:

zypper install libpulse0-32bit

I’m currently using OpenSUSE Tumbleweed, but I’ve seen it’s happening to a lot of users, including other distros as well.
