I have Skype for linux installed on my Ubuntu 16.04 which has worked fine up until now. I received a spam message from one of my contacts which I accidentally clicked, and now my skype won't start up anymore. I can start up the application the icon appears on the Launcher as if the app is running, however no windows appear.
I tried purging and re-installing the package, but that did not seem to help.
Thank you for your replies
