TIL: getting Skype for Linux working

Microsoft’s Skype for Linux is a pain for Linux (well, for Ubuntu at least). It stopped working for me, no one could hear me.

Apparently it needs pulse audio to  work properly, but as others have found “most problems with the sound in Linux can be solved by removing PulseAudio”. The answer, as outlined in this post, is apulse “PulseAudio emulation for ALSA”.
