Skype doesn't start

On Ubuntu 13.04 my Skype refused to start. Maybe something went wrong while trying to install driver for ATI Radeon 7730m graphics card. So the first thing to do to troubleshoot is to try, to run Skype from terminal. Open terminal and type skype and press enter. If you get the following error: skype: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Then run the following command in terminal again and this should fix Skype not starting problem. sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx:i386
