skype error while loading shared libraries libGL.so.1 in ubuntu

Sometimes in 64 bit skype doesn't find the lib in appropriate path. By adding a LD_LIBRARY_PATH we can fix this problem easily. LD_LIBRARY_PATH contains the path (32bit) where libGL.so.1 is located.

Step:
1. To test, run the following command in terminal

env LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=30 skype



2. If it works then add this line after EXEC= in skype.desktop located in /usr/share/applications/ or ~/.local/share/applications.

Exec =env LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=30 skype
