cheers,
Just did. It worked for that user also. I am not sure why it is affecting my regular account. I don't see anything on my .bash* files that would cause some issues. I'm stumped!

Looks like it could be nvidia related. Here's my dmesg showed:
Code:
[175945.638360] skype[29796]: segfault at 36f69058 ip 0000000036f69058 sp 00000000ffc3ff0c error 14 in libnvidia-glcore.so.331.38[edf6d000+21d0000]

Well, after doing a lot of digging around, I found a temporary workaround. I have to start skype like this on the command line:
Code:
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libGL.so.1.2.0 skype
I can't figure out why other user accounts it works without doing that though. Will have to do some more digging around and see what is sourcing that.

I have neither skype, nor current, nor a 64 bit machine handy at the moment, but a couple of things have crossed my mind regarding your issue:

a)have you checked the skype config in your ~/ ? A cursory google suggests it's in .Skype (though I can't verify.) Perhaps you could delete/rename that and start anew.

b)along the same lines, your dmesg and subsequent workaround suggest *something* perhaps video-related; have you deleted/adjusted your nvidia-settings, etc?

cheers,

Have you reinstalled the nvidia driver (with the 32-bit libraries) after having installed the multilib ? it is a requirement to avoid trouble each time one of the package xorg-server, mesa, and mesa-compat32 is upgraded (or reinstalled).

Otherwise, you can try with an earlier nvidia-driver like the 331.20 or 319.76

Greetings.

Like mrclisdue indicates, your issue may be with a package upgrade which overwrote some of the 32-bit video libraries.

The times I got segfaults when starting a 32-bit app, it was always caused by an update of kernel, xorg-server and/or mesa packages, without upgrading the Nvidia binary driver afterwards.
If you run multilib, you also have to upgrade the "compat32" version of the mesa package, and afterwards you have to instruct the Nvidia install to also install its 32-bit libraries (not only the 64-bit driver).

That was it! I forgot to rebuild the nvidia driver once I went multilib. Doesn't explain how the other user accounts worked fine. Gremlins maybe. Anyway, it's all working now. Thank you all for the suggestions!
