[QUOTE=mikewillis;19893]Good point, I only tested with a Skype account.
Out of curiosity I signed up for a Microsoft account. Then I tried to log in to Skype with it and I can’t. It’s not that I try to log in and it fails, it’s that the option to log in with a Microsoft account to appear doesn’t even appear. Click ‘Alternatively sign in with Microsoft Account’ and the login dialogue appears for a split second then the Skype login dialogue comes back. This happens regardless of whether libopenssl0_9_8-32bit is installed or not and persists if the firewall is disabled (OP made mention of opening port on firewall, something I’ve never had to do to make Skype work.)
The original poster said “I couldn’t login with my new Microsoft account.” and I can’t log in with my new Microsoft account, but I the reasons might actually be different. The original poster made no mention of their inability to login with their Microsoft account being because the option to do so isn’t accessible.
Logging in to Skype with a Microsoft account works fine on openSUSE 13.1 64bit.
That’s right. I can basically open skype from a command line, and there I have the login screen. However, the alternative option to sign in with a Microsoft account is not doing anything.
And I’m glad to hear that Skype works for you. I was even trying to find out if skype performs the same error on another distro, Thanks for mentioning that.
Anyway, I already had all the openssl packages mentioned:
rpm -qa|grep -i ssl
However, my system is the same since downloading the trial version and registering it, except for these packages:
glibc-32bit libasound2-32bit xorg-x11-libXv-32bit xorg-x11-libs-32bit libqt4-32bit libQtWebKit4-32bit libstdc++46-32bit alsa-plugins-pulse-32bit
So my conclusion is that there is a package that will bring skype to show up the alternative login screen for the Microsoft account, and I’ll let you know when I find it.
